Big Bing by Stanley Bing
Book DescriptionBing has lived the last two decades climbing the ladder at one of the great multinational corporations of the cosmos while living in the real world of family, friends and consumable goods that every reader will recognize. His work is always funny and somewhat rude, but his capability to move and to instruct sets him apart from all other thumb suckers who empty out the contents of their brains in the pages of disposable media. Following a brief introduction to the fictional person that is Stanley Bing, the book plunges the reader into tightly focused sections that explore the vast range of subjects, issues, questions, concerns and dietary suggestions that have characterized Bing's thinking since 1984, when he started with the corporate strategy column in the pages of Esquire. The chapters include: Strategies: How to keep your head while others are losing theirs. How to help them lose theirs when necessary. How to employ all the tools of everyday work - lunch, phones, company plastic, meetings, interfaces in public places - to succeed and keep your spirit somewhat intact; The Business of Business: Bing has been on the inside of many a gruesome deal, seen the machine grind up the bones of those who stood in its way, witnessed the birth and death of dinosaurs and had quite a few lunches with them, too. His spy's perspective is unique; no one has seen this world the way Bing has and lived to describe it in such depth. The result is story-telling at its best - sophisticated, amusing, and driven by the kind of insight that only an insider can possess. "The Big Bing" provides a Bing's-eye view of the society in which we all live and work, creating one of the most entertaining, thought-provoking and just plain funny bodies of work in contemporary letters.
