Good stories, dreadful writing - a struggle to read.
on 2 November 2005
The author has some good stories to tell, and as a consultant myself I recognise the ring of truth in the sharp practices which he describes, and the many self-fulfiing prophecies, ego games, and related practices.
Unfortunately his writing style is so bad that the book makes for very jerky reading. He uses commas like the grammatical equivalent of crowd control barriers; he also has a strange habit of writing - for example - h-ll when he means hell. I gather that he self-published the book; a good copy editor would have stopped his unfortunate style from interfering with a good story.
