This book should be required reading for every business guru, chief executive, management consultant and investment banker - or if not for them, at least for the people who are so often on the receiving end of their collective 'wisdom'. It's a brilliant debunking of all the catch-phrases, jargon, trendy consultant-speak and nonsense that have invaded our lives and are in danger of running riot. A large dose of this healthily refreshing book would be good news for politicians, journalists and business leaders alike - it will make you laugh and help restore your sanity at the same time.

Nick Webb has taken on a strange enough 'mission' to show the simple meanings some strange sounding terms carry in the business, political and legal world. He has certainly proved that he's had a fair share of experience with every kind of crappy or misleading words and how people use them to convince or dazzle corporate employees, 'customers' or the public in general.

Webb has taken a view of erroneous humoristic criticism on today's developed world and there are a few serious points he constantly stresses through meanings of different words.

Excellent book. Great fun. I was sad to learn that Mr Webb is no longer with us. I would have liked to have suggested some new words for inclusion in a future edition.
