If you work in business, the chances are you have fallen under the poisonous spell of business bullshit and jargon. Very few of us seem able to avoid "reaching out", or "walking the talk", or "shifting paradigms", or "thinking outside the box". No longer solely the province of management consultants, investors and MBA types, business gobbledygook has mesmerized the rank and file around the globe. Help is at hand with this guidebook, aptly described as "the world's most comprehensive collection" of the top 2,000 business terms and jargon that have infected us all. Stay sane (and keep your colleagues and customers from suffocating you) from the business bullshit madness by having this little book by your side. "Kevin has captured perfectly the worst linguistic excesses of the business world in a way that is depressing, truthful, and very, very funny all at the same time" - Chris Carmichael, Head of Media, EMEA, HP.
