📒The Dictionary Of Corporate Bullshit ✍ Lois Beckwith
✏The Dictionary of Corporate Bullshit Book Summary : This caustically funny Webster’s of the workplace cuts to the true meaning of the inane argot spouted in cubicles and conference rooms across the land. At a price even an intern can afford and in a handy paperback format that won’t weigh down your messenger bag or briefcase, The Dictionary of Corporate Bullshit is a hilarious guide to the smoke-screen terms and passive-aggressive phrases we traffic in every day. Each entry begins with a straight definition followed by a series of alternative meanings that are, of course, what is really meant. Take, for example, the widely used, seemingly innocuous term brainstorming: 1. to generate ideas as a group in an accepting environment and in a free-form manner 2. a supposedly relaxed forum in which no idea is a bad idea – that is, until you generate a bad idea and are met with uncomfortable silence/looks that suggest you are retarded or really uncool/the feeling that you are about to be fired Beyond deciphering corporate commonplaces, you’ll learn the PC term for secret Santa (Holiday Harry); why the Blackberry is “most commonly referred to as a ‘Crackberry’ due to its highly addictive nature”; and that when a co-worker says “Have a good night”, they really mean: “this meaningless, seemingly interminable exchange of small talk is now over. I am no longer speaking to you, and will now flee this awkward social situation. Don’t even think of asking which way I’m walking.” Just remember to read this only at COB (close of business) to avoid being busted (caught idling by your boss).
📒The Dictionary Of Corporate Bullshit 2008 Cal ✍ Lois Beckwith
✏The Dictionary Of Corporate Bullshit 2008 Cal Book Summary : If you've ever wondered how to 'harness intellectual capital,' why that MQNWSMEWGABHANG (Moderately qualified, nonthreatening white straight male employee who gets ahead because he's a 'nice guy') was promoted ahead of you, or what your boss really meant when she said 'keep me in the loop,' this calendar belongs on your desktop. Based on the book 'The Dictionary of Corporate Bullshit,' the calendar features hundreds of caustically funny definitions for the clichéd, meaningless, and euphemistic jargon and 'buzzwords' that supplant actual communication in offices every day.

Help is at hand with this Dictionary of Business Bullshit, aptly described as “the world’s most comprehensive collection” of the top 2,000 business terms and jargon that have infected us all. Stay sane (and keep your colleagues and customers from suffocating you) from the business bullshit madness by having this dictionary by your side. Based on his wide and extensive experience with business bullshit, Kevin Duncan deciphers the terms and language of modern-day business speak.
📒The Dictionary Of Bullshit ✍ Nick Webb
✏The Dictionary of Bullshit Book Summary : Without language, we cannot think. Most of us wouldn't have a problem with that because these days nobody has a problem. We have issues. Possibly opportunities. If we are unlucky, we may face challenges. Business, politics, self-help, marketing, the media, statistics, science and local government are all rich sources of bullshit that author Nick Webb has scrupulously mined for this indispensable guide to navigating this all pervasive and tricksy linguistic phenomenon. Much bullshit is merely absurd or fun. An apartment advertised as a studio flat is so cramped that nobody has sex in it without putting a limb out of the window. But there is also capital 'B', weapons-grade Bullshit that sneaks into our minds like heavy metal pollution. Moral content and personal responsibility have drained out of such Bullshit - just one of the reasons why it is so appealing to shifty politicians and senior executives in expensive suits. Serious and funny, angry and shamelessly opinionated, 'The Dictionary of Bullshit' cuts to the chase of corporate speak.

Now the very best of this writing has been carefully curated into one volume, the perfect solution for the millions of readers who love all things Freakonomics. Discover why taller people tend to make more money; why it's so hard to predict the Kentucky Derby winner; and why it might be time for a sex tax (if not a fat tax). You'll also learn a great deal about Levitt and Dubner's own quirks and passions. Surprising and erudite, eloquent and witty, Freaks and Friends demonstrates the brilliance that has made their books an international sensation.

📒Reel Culture ✍ Mimi O'Connor

📒The Dictionary Of Bull Shit ✍ Nick Webb
✏The Dictionary of bull shit Book Summary : Bull shit (n.; adj,; adv.; etc.) 1: deceitful language; lies 2: jargon or cliches intended to place a positive spin on something plainly negative 3: anything said by a politician, CEO or PR flak 4: new age, modern, postmodern, cutting edge, meta or Xtreme 5: pretty much everything you read or hear these days. A hilarious, irreverent and generally subversive compendium of what passes for discourse today, The Dictionary of Bullshit savages politics, self-help, marketing, the media, all things new age, statistics, science and business. From the political credibility gap (aka lying) to the oxymoronic instant classic, whether you're in a paperless office or have been out-sourced, The Dictionary of Bullshit is an all-out offensive against all that is phony, stupid and just plain meaningless.
📒The Dictionary Of Political Bullshit ✍ Nick Webb
✏The Dictionary of Political Bullshit Book Summary : Politics these days is all about PR, spin, evading answers and presenting facts, figures, legislation – and pretty much everything – in some kind of special code. This is a language so bland, so boring, so utterly drained of responsibility and full of obfuscation and cliché that it washes over us like a comforting warm tide of custard. Business as usual, we think, and quietly go to sleep. However, in this perfect antidote to politics, Nick Webb takes a wry and irreverent look at what lies behind the spin, clichés, and euphemisms used in politics by everyone from the county councillor to our beloved Prime Minster. With a dry wit and a sharp pen, The Dictionary of Political Bullshit debunks the oft-heard rhetoric for all those befuddled, baffled and maybe even a bit bored with all the political jargon that we face every day. Subversive, opinionated, and a bit stroppy, this is the essential tool to make sense of modern politics – make sure you’ve got your copy before you vote. Nick Webb’s previous books include A Dictionary of Bullshit, A Book of Insults and the autobiography of his friend Douglas Adams. Accountability (noun) A mysterious quality claimed by many but demonstrated by none. Zombie debtors (noun) Bankers use this term for the living dead who will never be able to repay their debts.
