I’m so happy for you that it’s done [the book] and in print and that you’re sharing yourself with the world in such a wonderful way. You are inspiring! – Lisa, your friend.
To be quite honest, my initial thought at the word, “Idiots” in the title gave me some concern. I thought it was harsh. Then I read the sample First Chapter on the website and quickly realized, this wasn’t a put-down, it was only to draw attention to the reality of the workplace. The word “Idiot” actually lent credence to the many stories and personalities covered in the book. I’m very glad I purchased a copy. This was a fun book that offered much more than being successful at work … it covered being happy in life. The old saying is true, you can’t judge a book by it’s cover.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and was captivated by your riveting expose’ on people who work in a professional business environment. I worked with every type of “idiot” portrayed in your book throughout my Wall Street career. I couldn’t wait to get to each succeeding chapter and I look forward to hearing more in a follow-up to this true reflection of life as it is. – Artie
Impressed with your book, but expected nothing less given you do everything to the nth degree and have an endless drive. The book was a “teaching”, “biography”, and a natural read all in one !!! – Joe, your friend.
I wish I had read it 25 years ago. Maybe I could have done better in the corporate rat race, or maybe screwed up less, or bit my tongue more, or shot from the hip less. The reward for doing a bang up job is getting borrowed like a tool, told the bar has been raised when expecting a raise, and watching lesser folks take the credit. I let it happen, so it is partly my fault. I made room for the next pawn. It’s their turn to figure it out. Every one of them needs to read this book! – Frank
