    Can I Get A Copy For All New Employees? I work in a traditional business environment and what I've noticed is that many new employees, who may have their shiny MBAs, have no idea about business culture. And all snark aside, that's what this book is about. I'd almost change the name to How To Survive In Business. No, this isn't really about MBA subjects, though it does touch on marketing, finance, etc. Written with humor and wit, this gives people who are new to the business world survival tools th Can I Get A Copy For All New Employees? I work in a traditional business environment and what I've noticed is that many new employees, who may have their shiny MBAs, have no idea about business culture. And all snark aside, that's what this book is about. I'd almost change the name to How To Survive In Business. No, this isn't really about MBA subjects, though it does touch on marketing, finance, etc. Written with humor and wit, this gives people who are new to the business world survival tools that will help you to thrive in this environment. The book gives advice on everything from what to wear to what to put (or not put) into an email before you hit send. How to handle office politics. How to handle office romance. How to deal with bad bosses and how not to become one yourself. Planning effective meetings. How to fire someone. How to encourage your employees. The difference between coworkers, friends, and frenemies. And how to market yourself for success. Business is about building relationships - in the right way. For instance, many new employees don't realize that business dinners - and drinks - are an integral part of the job. They're mandatory and you need to do it right. It seems like common sense to tell people how to drink without embarrassing yourself, but I've seen it happen on more than one occasion at business functions. It never ends well. And people never forget. The book even tells you what drink you should nurse to stay sober, professional, and functional. Simply put, this survival guide to business will help people new to cubicle land to fit in and thrive - and it does it with humor and style!

    Lots of wisdom an humor... but I could never read this cover-to-cover. For that reason, it was only 3 stars in my mind. Still I'd recommend it to anyone who's worked in a business setting. It's definitely worth picking up... Lots of wisdom an humor... but I could never read this cover-to-cover. For that reason, it was only 3 stars in my mind.

    There was some good advice in this book. But the emphasis of alcohol to get ahead strikes me is just absurd.

    I was really excited to win this book from the Goodreads.com website. At one time, I had considered getting an MBA, but the cost of pursuing the degree, in addition to my current degrees would have just been way too much. Mr. Stanley Bing's book is an excellent way to learn many of the principles and material taught in a traditional MBA program. It also offers additional material which probably would not be included in traditional programs. I also enjoyed Mr. Stanley Bing's wit.

It also offers additional material which probably would not be included in traditional programs. I also enjoyed Mr. Stanley Bing's wit. He made the material being discussed more enjoyable and interesting and I did not catch myself wanting to snooze, as I have so often in many traditional business classes. Even though I am not a business major, classes in the field are greatly beneficial to students of other majors as well, as odds are, they will either be starting their own business or working for another business in their chosen field in the future. I have not checked out the website yet, but look forward to checking it out in the future. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone with an interest in business and the foundations and principles being taught in traditional MBA programs. It is a great way to learn about these things while saving money (which in turn, can be used to start a business). I would not hesitate to purchase more books by Mr. Bing in the future.

    “The Curriculum: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Master of Business Arts” by Stanley Bing wasn't what I expected. I guess I anticipated a book that had more traditional business advice, but with a street tone to it. This book is anything but traditional, and while much is “tongue in cheek” with hidden truths, cynicism, humor and four letter words, I believe it has the capacity to turn some people off, and annoy others. While I don't fall into that camp, I wasn't excited about the book, and i “The Curriculum: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Master of Business Arts” by Stanley Bing wasn't what I expected.

While I don't fall into that camp, I wasn't excited about the book, and it is probably not one I'd read again or look to for much business advice. The book is laid out as the curriculum you really need to succeed in business. And I'll admit, there is some good advice and some practical truths throughout the book. But there is also a lot negative aspects that just didn't make it as enjoyable of a read as I'd believed when I requested it. I really think it will depend on the person's sense of humor and business knowledge in regards to if they will enjoy it. Bottom line: It's a spoof of a business book, written humorously (if you enjoy that kind of humor), but also containing a number of hidden truths about the business world, good and bad. It's okay, and if you are into this kind of satire, you will probably enjoy it more than I did.

    I honestly want to print the included MBA certificate and put it on my wall after finishing this book. I wish I had found this book right after graduating and before starting my first "real" job. It is incredibly useful for dealing with old-school businessmen. The chapters are all incredibly useful. I didn't get to see the graphs until after the fact because I was listening on a commute, but they are more or less what I expected. They are more snark than actual content.

This book is incredibly satirical, so if you don't enjoy that, definitely don't read this book. If you can enjoy the tongue-in-cheek presentation, there is really a lot of useful help in this book. I absolutely recommend this, particularly for females working in traditional companies.

    Ok - truth be told - my husband read this book not me. But we received it as a freeby from Goodreads & I cannot get him to do a review so I will let you know what he told me. (lol) My husband loved it. He would quote stuff from the book. (Stuff I do not understand.) He definitely suggests reading it for yourself if you are into business degrees and such - or if you own your own business. Thanks!

    Entertainingly presents insights about business - many that can be applied to other fields. The writer does a great job with making profound concepts very simple. The vulgar language isn't overbearing- just unnecessary to me. But then I'm not a part of the business world. :o) Entertainingly presents insights about business - many that can be applied to other fields.

    Quite funny, especially as I'm preparing for a finance internship this summer. A good read for college kids who want to see the humorous side of business.
