Overview

CorporateSpeak uncovers the REAL meaning and hidden implications behind the words, phrases and obfuscations coming from management utterances. The style is dictionary format and there is a business philosophy espoused that is both pragmatic and based on real experience and not text books.

The book is not politically correct, is funny and is deliciously irreverent.

The intended audience is people who work in - or want to work in organizations where business jargon is spoken. Business lingo is a foreign language to normal people and mastery is needed to climb the corporate ladder without stepping on your tongue.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Here's yet another volume on the Amistad affair (see Cable, above). Owens's 1953 title is the one upon which the current film supposedly is based. Take your pick.
