All is not well at Seattle’s Pike Palace Market; production is plummeting and morale is at an all-time low. When the management tells Mary Jane Ramirez to sort their company out, she knows that she has a grim task ahead of her. But before long, she’s working miracles with the help of head fishmonger Lonnie ... and delivering results that nobody could have expected. Fish! is a hilarious new book of management parables that not only takes on proverbial management wisdom, but comes out on top.
