Praise For…


This highly intelligent and deeply funny debut memoir skewers a segment of the economy that nearly every white-collar worker has learned to fear and loathe: consultancies. . . . His reconstructed dialogue from within his (unnamed) firm and from his time serving clients is alone with the price of admission.—Publishers Weekly

A more entertaining book about business is unlikely to appear for a long time.—Economist.com

Exceedingly smart and funny ... Kihn's breezy, Jay McInerney-inspired writing renders the damnable daily life of the management consultant precisely, often hilariously.—Salon.com
