From the Publisher"This is a funny, entertaining, readable book about a serious, important, undervalued issue: communication. The way business people talk to each other — and to the rest of us — is often inauthentic, deceptive, opaque, and trivial. If you're us, this book will help you decode what they're talking about. If you're them, it will help you find a better, more effective way to get your message across."
— Tony Schwartz, bestselling coauthor of The Power of Full Engagement and president of The Energy Project
"Why Business People Speak Like Idiots...is one of the surprising ideas and trends that will change the way we work and live in 2005."
— Fast Company
"There are two reasons why business people refuse to speak in a way the rest of us can understand: fear and peer pressure. This book cuts through both excuses and makes it far more likely that work will actually get done. If you've ever written a memo, you need this book."
— Seth Godin, bestselling author of Permission Marketing and Purple Cow
"Why Business People Speak Like Idiots follows its own advice. It's blunt, lively and chocablock with personality."
