Blah, Blah, Blah: A Snarky Guide to Office Lingo by Dan Hill

SKU: 9780999741658

In the spirit of Ambrose Bierce's classic The Devil's Dictionary (widely considered to be one of the 100 greatest works of American literature) comes Blah, Blah, Blah, a satirical send-up of business jargon that masks a lack of innovation, teamwork and empowerment. Anyone ever subject to office politics will be able to relate. This crowdsourced book includes diabolical definitions of terms like synergy and cliches like "stay in your swim lane" from 50 contributors, with the nearly 600 definitions addressing how office workers get bamboozled by their own foibles, managers' blind spots, colleagues stirring the pot, executive blunders, and other buffoons (like HR, sales, etc.) Comes complete with nearly two dozen illustrations.
