Review quote

[The] perfect secret Santa gift. * Bookseller * Even though it's mostly a comedy book, I can't help but think how legitimately useful I would have found [100 Tricks] in my early twenties. If there is someone who has just graduated uni or has recently entered the workforce, for the love of God, buy it for them. Stick it in their stocking. And "circle back" later to see if they enjoyed it. * The Pool * A lot of fun and absolutely on the money. * Daily Telegraph, Book of the Year * A lot of fun and absolutely on the money. * Daily Telegraph, Book of the Year * I love this book so much! People who need to buy this book include a) those who want to advance their careers by knowing how to use body language and just the right amount of bullshit to claw their way to the top; and b) people like me who are bored at work and want to baffle and annoy their colleagues. Cleverly written and illustrated, 100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings is sly satire that will bring endless joy to anyone who has ever endured the drudgery of corporate life. -- Dan Lyons, writer for HBO's Silicon Valley and NYT bestselling author of DISRUPTED
