Publisher's Synopsis

The bottom line is this: the workplace is a minefield of business jargon that people bandy about on a daily basis. From indecipherable abbreviations and business terminology, to buzz words, motivational phrases and more, it can all start to sound like everyone around you is speaking another language. But it's time to shoot the puppy (do the unthinkable), push the envelope (expand the boundaries), knife and fork the problem (handle bit by bit), and get to grips with the language of business! Pushing the Envelope, takes a wry and witty look at office jargon, uncovering the origins and meanings of many useful - and some not so useful - phrases that can be heard in the workplace and in everyday life. Amusing and informative, this book guarantees that you'll be fluent in business in no time.
