About the Author

Fred Talbott has taught more than 2,000 managers stand-up comedy... and how to avoid taking themselves and their lives too seriously. He's also taught comedy writing to White House speech writers and contributed gags to NBC's Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" and to the late Jeff MacNelly's "Shoe" cartoon. His talent is grabbing life and its hilarity and lessons and holding them up for everyone to see ... and laugh at. The alter-ego of JJ's Professor Pin head, Fred has spent the past 20 years as a university professor and legendary corporate and convention speaker and trainer. He can be reached at jjbusinessbullets.com and speechleader.com.

Format: Paperback
Whether you are in the corporate structure or at a mom-and-pop shop you can learn from and relate to this book.
Mr. Talbott utilizes a swift and humorous pen to teach and entertain page after page. Unfortunately or fortunately we have all been through a variety of what Talbott depicts, now we have the solace to sit back and have a laugh about it!
Take the bullets out of the chamber, iron your shirt and don't forget your briefcase and this book on your way to your nine to five! Thanks Mr. Talbott!

Dilbert for the MBA. Thinking of a business career? Professor
Pinhead has been there done that. This hilarious romp through
the world of corporate travel, the cubicle farm, the HR petting zoo, and the management jerks from hell will be familiar to the veterans and a caution for the newbies and wannabees.
Highly recommended, but be advised, take just a bit each day
lest you be overcome by a mixture of unstoppable laughter and the queasy feeling that these are the folks who are running/ruining the business world.
What I liked especially about this book is that it serves both as a look in the mirror for the mid-level wonk, the VP,the HR dominatrix, and the CEO but a you-are-not-alone solace for the employee/customer/victim.

This book is hilarious! A must read if you've spent time in a gray fuzz covered, neon lite cubicle in corporate American. you'll love this book. If you've ever received mass emailings containing executive directives that make you talk to your computer screen in colorful ways, you'll love this book. If you've ever heard a company executive tell you that the company is doing fine, despite the headlines, you'll love this book.
If the first names of the CEOs of your former employers are Joe, or Bernie, and have recently been Indicted by the Justice Department, you should read this book. As Jimmy Buffet once said, "If we don't laugh, we'll all go insane!" A truly sarcastic and humorous work of art.

Format: Paperback
A valuable book for anyone working in a corporate job, a university job, a government job, a military job, or doing business with them. (That's everyone, isn't it?) Whether you are in a cubicle, a wood-paneled suite or a home office, it's time to lighten up. Fred Talbott's scenarios and one-liners cut like a razor because he finds humor as he reveals basic truths about the way we work.
If you are a public speaker, steal from this book. If you are a consultant, quote from this book. If you are a working stiff like me, read this book and laugh and remember what Mama says, "Misery loves company."
