Do you hate going forward? Do you shudder when a colleague wants to reach out? Are you disgusted by low-hanging fruit, sick of being on the team, and reluctant to open the kimono?

Does the phrase blue-sky thinking make you see red?

Do you really want to drill down or take a helicopter view?

Are you past caring whether the key drivers are going to move the needle? Should anyone really punch a puppy?

And can you bear to hear about a big hairy audacious goal?

If modern office jargon makes you want to throw up, this book is for you. Taking a hilarious and scathing deep dive into the most hated and absurd examples of corporate-speak it is a come to Jesus moment for verbally downtrodden workers everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

Although mostly written in a tongue-in-cheek, colloquial style, this book also succeeds in being informative and enlightening on a vexing subject.-TLS
