Book Review: B.S. Incorporated by Jennifer Rock and Michael Voss
|Genre:||Corporate Fiction, Funny|
|Book Name:||B.S. Incorporated|
|Author:||Jennifer Rock and Michael Voss|
|Publisher:||Wise Ink Creative Publishing|
Rarely do I find a book which has such a strong calling that I spend hours on it at a stretch to complete it. But no denying the fact, this book B.S. Incorporated is written superbly with just the right dose of everything that fits the big companies – corporate life, consulting, sales, warehousing, and not to miss the boardroom drama. It reminded me of the book I had once read – The Goal by Eliyahu Goldratt, only without any operational lessons which in future may be classified as MBA textbook reading.
The excellence of this book may be attributed to the career experiences that the two writers bring with them, because of which they were able to knit a tight storyline. In the start, it’s a little confusing with the bombardment of so many characters. But once you get the hang, yes hang, you are ought to complete it, even if it means staying through the night – situational funny, incredible quips yet intriguing and insightful. All-in-all, a perfect package and I give it 10-on-10.
P.S: If any one knows another book with two authors and he/she likes it so much to recommend it, please let me know. Because, I am all in for recommending this one!
Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
As the communications manager tasked with translating C-suite doublespeak, Will Evans is constantly torn between his blue-collar warehouse past and his white-collar future. When he is put in charge of rolling out a dubious strategy the consultants brand Optelligence, Will is thrust deep into a muddle of absurdity and responsibility he never expected.
Enter Anna Reed, corporate mercenary with heels as high as her ambition. To her, BSI is just a stepping-stone to a better job at a smarter company. Demoted to Will’s team on her first day, she’s ready to steamroll anyone to get her career back on track.
When BSI is pushed to the brink of bankruptcy, Will hatches a covert plan that just might save them all. But he needs Anna’s cunning and courage to pull it off. Can Anna, the consummate job jumper, find a reason to go all-in on BSI? Or is she better off bailing and letting the company go down in flames?
