Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A witty read, with a message First of all, anyone who takes this book seriously is off their rocker. This is a funny way to show how insane some people can get with their business. However, if you read between the lines, you can pick up the occasional pearl of wisdom that runs through Bing's books. While my competitors may not wake up looking to kill me every day, they are looking for ways to take my customers and revenue, while smiling at me and feigning freindship all the way. In a very satirical way, this reminded me to take them seriously. Any way you read it, I found it great fun.
