Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Anyone who has ever felt really frustrated at work - which is everyone - will find relief and joy in this book. I have lunch at my desk, and find the 2-3 page length of Bing's fables ideal for a brief respite. The hard part is not laughing so loud that people come over. Because who wants to see people at lunch when you could be reading this? Bing is a masterful writer and humorist. Buy it.

I enjoy Bing's magazine articles. The fables in this tiny book are very short, often only a long paragraph. The lessons are generally cynical, rather than funny. It's a good coffee table book for guest to grab, read a fable, and put down. I don't recommend buying this book for something to sit down and enjoy for a long period of time.

Format: Hardcover
Bing's perspective is clever, even intriguing. Businesspeople love instructional tales, and fables have a useful moral packaged into each one. Thus, Bing brings readers these artifacts of ancient corporate culture that were discovered in the ruins of a long-gone Chapter 11 victim in the past. Reportedly the author had been beaten to death for mistakenly speaking too truthfully to a group of security analysts.

The fables cover outsourcing and hatchet-men, etc., but, just don't merit the time spent reading them.
