Description

From this classic tome, learn everything you need to know to land the corner office:

·         How to make money

·         How to make more money

·         How to choose the right company (one big enough so that nobody knows exactly what anyone else is doing)

·         How to cultivate the appearance of extreme busyness through strategic desk management

·         How to delegate responsibility (have plenty of assistants!)

First published in 1952, this guide inspired the beloved Pulitzer Prize–winning musical, which returns to Broadway in 2011 in a production that stars Daniel Radcliffe and John Larroquette. Updated with a brilliant new introduction by the king of business satire, Stanley Bing, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying is essential reading for the ambitious and the lazy alike.
