  • He wouldn't exactly seek the company of ass-kissers and bimbos, but he wouldn't reject them out of hand either
  • He would realize that loving yourself means never having to say you're sorry
  • He would kill people, but only if he could feel good about himself afterward

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.
