The moral of this story is: too much Bing is not a good thing! Once every two weeks in Fortune magazine is okay and occasionally even funny. All at once, not so much.

So, my daughter has trouble sleeping and I was stuck with just this book to read. It was a REALLY long night ...

The cover got my attention while perusing through the new book section. Mostly, while reading the book, everything went over my head. Or under my feet. Or something.

It was filled with two to four page short stories finding humor in corporate life. I work in the corporate world ... surely, some of these corporate jokes would tickle a funny bone once in a while.

Nope, sorry.

Recommends it for: someone totally bored
This was a really great idea, using Aesop's Fables to mimic real modern corporate life and give us some metaphorical food for thought. Unfortunately, it managed to poke fun at many aspects of the work place without giving too much in the way of true moral value. Blah.
This book is supposed to be a humorous take on big business. Some of the morals were funny, but most were actually sad in my view. It was an interesting way to present his ideas.
The stories were mostly forced, not interesting, and even less entertaining

Very cleverly written piece of humor and sarcasm.
