Overview

The Cost of a Deadbeat is a thought-provoking study that takes both a humorous and cynical approach to identifying and defining the major types of deadbeats, and the hidden monetary and emotional costs they bring to society.

With over forty years of experience in the workplace, author Michael Webb applies his business knowledge and observation skills to illuminate what most of us unknowingly tolerate each day from the selfish and lazy in our culture. In each chapter, Webb provides personal examples of DNA (Deadbeat Negligent Activities) and categorizes the types of deadbeats, such as:

  • Workplace deadbeats--slackers, sickies, tenure train riders, and slacking supervisors
  • Criminal deadbeats--pilferers, prisoners, cyber slugs, scam artists, and petty thieves
  • Daylight deadbeats--porky politicians, bumbling bureaucrats, and deadbeat voters
  • Cheater deadbeats--fraud finders, tax evaders, and bankruptcy bums
  • New generation deadbeats--poor parents and weak schools

The Cost of a Deadbeat will encourage you to join the fight against deadbeats by examining your own behavior and contributing common sense and decency to your own life.

I found myself getting charged up as I finished each chapter. I never realized the enormous cost that the 'Deadbeats' wreak on society. Now when I'm driving on the road, watching TV, or at work, it's easy to identify all of the deadbeats that surround me. My internal calculator whirs like my electricity meter at home as I add up my own personal cost. A quick and enjoyable read...good watercooler topics. (just don't get caught lingering at the watercooler or else YOU may be labeled a deadbeat!)
