Bing is at his best when describing Lloyd's many idiosyncrasies: what he buys when grocery shopping, his love of his dog Steve, his appraisal of various beers. For example: "There was Foster's lager, which was average beer but came in an enormous can, which was not something to be sneezed at. When one's wife said, 'How many beers have you had?' on the cusp of driving off to someplace social of an early evening, the honest Foster's husband could say 'One!' and not be criticized, even though that one beer was the equivalent of two gigantic tankards of lusty ale."
Lloyd includes a portfolio of full-color presentations chock full of business clip art that graphs everything from the "Number of Laughs Enjoyed in Lloyd's Corporation As a Function of Profit Growth" and "Suit Size As a Function of Income/Vodka Consumption" to an examination of "What Lloyd Eats" and a summary of Lloyd's travels in Germany. If you enjoyed Stanley Bing in Esquire and Fortune, then you'll find that Lloyd is a must read. Bing's good humor captures many of the follies of business life that most readers will recognize and appreciate. --Harry C.
