Review: B.S. Business Satire by John Auger and Jerry Serra

Well I'm not much of a business book reading type of gal since I'm a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM) *you'll get that joke in a minute* But this was sent to me for review and I'm glad I read it. It's short and sweet and I laughed out loud.
Paperback: 114 pages
Publisher: Publishing Works (September 30, 2009)

Authors John Auger and Jerry Serra take readers on a comedic ride about the state of today’s business culture. Full of satire, this trendy pocket sized reader is like a recipe for the modern workplace that reminds readers to work to live, not live to work.
My Review:
If you work in a business setting daily this book will give you a chuckle because you are sure to recognize some of the key points these two authors touched on. My favorite had to be Titles (and of course what your email signature should include). Since I'm not sure on the amount of YA readers on the blog (they had some coarse language) I'll include one that I thought was funny.

"We don't monkey around"
Now while there is a lot of fun and sarcasm the guys also included some advice that rings true. I could see giving this as a Christmas present to your good-hearted boss and having them laughing at themselves in not to long. In the end it was an all around funny book with some decent advice for the work place.
*This ebook was sent to me for review in exchange for an honest review*

  1. I don't know much about business myself, but I could use some advice for the workplace! Being a music teacher, I work at a Univeristy and a non profit music school. Did they have any advice for non profits?
