The Official Sidekick Solution: How to Let Someone Else Hog the Spotlight While You Loosen Your Belt and Take a Nap

Descriere: Learn the power of low expectations A hilarious mock self-help book, The Sidekick Solution shows readers the benefits of being second best: eating what you want, letting the ax fall on someone else, and avoiding the heavy lifting while getting co-billing. Chapters with comic book-style illustrations cover such topics as the art of the supportive guffaw; famous sidekicks, from the fairly obscure Jimmy the Hun to Ed McMahon; the delicate nuances of attaching yourself to a new hero when the old one is fired; and more. Texas Bix Bender is the author of eighteen books, including the best-selling Don't Squat With Yer Spurs On series. He has written for television and radio shows, including Hee Haw, the Nashville Network's Tumbleweed Theater, and Riders Radio Theater. He lives in Nashville, Tennessee. Too Slim is the bassist for the Grammy-winning western music and comedy group Riders In The Sky. He has written for Riders Radio Theatre, Tumbleweed Theater, and various stage and TV specials. He lives near Nashville.

Sun Tzu Was a Sissy: Conquer Your Enemies, Promote Your Friends, and Wage the Real Art of War

We live in a vicious, highly competitive workplace environment, and things aren't getting any better.

For thousands of years, people have been reading the writings of the deeply wise, but also extremely dead Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu, who was perhaps the first to look on the waging of war as a strategic art that could be taught to people who wished to be warlords and other kinds of senior managers.In a nutshell, Sun Tzu taught that readiness is all, that knowledge of oneself and the enemy was the foundation of strength and that those who fight best are those who are prepared and wise enough not to fight at all. Unfortunately, in the current day, this approach is pretty much horse hockey, a fact that has not been recognized by the bloated, tree-hugging Sun Tzu industry, which churns out mushy-gushy pseudo-philosophy for business school types who want to make war and keep their hands clean.Sun Tzu was a Sissy will transcend all those efforts and teach the reader how to make war, win and enjoy the plunder in the real world, ...

100 Bullshit Jobs... and How to Get Them

The scholarly discipline of Bullshit Studies has blossomed in the last several years, fertilized by a number of critical works on the subject and the growing importance of the issue across a wide range of professions. Now, best-selling author and lifelong practitioner Stanley Bing enters the field with a comprehensive look at the many attractive jobs now available to those who are serious about their bullshit and prepared to dedicate their working life to it.What, Bing inquires, do a feng shui consultant, new media executive, wine steward, department store greeter, and Vice President of the United States have in common? What, too, are the actual duties performed by a McKinsey consultant? Other than sitting around making people nervous? Could that possibly be his core function? Likewise, what does an aromatherapist actually do, per se? Sniff things and rub them on people, for big fragrant bucks? Is that all?The answer in all cases is "Yes." They all have bullshit jobs.These few, of course, are just the beginning. Across the length and breadth of this shrinking globe, skillful bullshit artists have secured pleasant, lucrative employment, and are enjoying themselves more than you are. ...
