This caustically funny Webster’s of the workplace cuts to the true meaning of the inane argot spouted in cubicles and conference rooms across the land. At a price even an intern can afford and in a handy paperback format that won’t weigh down your messenger bag or briefcase, The Dictionary of Corporate Bullshit is a hilarious guide to the smoke-screen terms and passive-aggressive phrases we traffic in every day. Each entry begins with a straight definition followed by a series of alternative meanings that are, of course, what is really meant. Take, for example, the widely used, seemingly innocuous term brainstorming: 1. to generate ideas as a group in an accepting environment and in a free-form manner 2. a supposedly relaxed forum in which no idea is a bad idea – that is, until you generate a bad idea and are met with uncomfortable silence/looks that suggest you are retarded or really uncool/the feeling that you are about to be fired Beyond deciphering corporate commonplaces, you’ll learn the PC term for secret Santa (Holiday Harry); why the Blackberry is “most commonly referred to as a ‘Crackberry’ due to its highly addictive nature”; and that when a co-worker says “Have a good night”, they really mean: “this meaningless, seemingly interminable exchange of small talk is now over. I am no longer speaking to you, and will now flee this awkward social situation. Don’t even think of asking which way I’m walking.” Just remember to read this only at COB (close of business) to avoid being busted (caught idling by your boss).

Without language, we cannot think. Most of us wouldn't have a problem with that because these days nobody has a problem. We have issues. Possibly opportunities. If we are unlucky, we may face challenges. Business, politics, self-help, marketing, the media, statistics, science and local government are all rich sources of bullshit that author Nick Webb has scrupulously mined for this indispensable guide to navigating this all pervasive and tricksy linguistic phenomenon. Much bullshit is merely absurd or fun. An apartment advertised as a studio flat is so cramped that nobody has sex in it without putting a limb out of the window. But there is also capital 'B', weapons-grade Bullshit that sneaks into our minds like heavy metal pollution. Moral content and personal responsibility have drained out of such Bullshit - just one of the reasons why it is so appealing to shifty politicians and senior executives in expensive suits. Serious and funny, angry and shamelessly opinionated, 'The Dictionary of Bullshit' cuts to the chase of corporate speak.

In The Dictionary of Legal Bullshit, you will find the definition of such words as: Bankrupt. The state of being that one attains when the government sticks your creditors with the bill for your extravagant expenditures. Jail. Exclusive public housing with lousy neighbors, no view, poor facilities and one of the highest cost per square foot of any living space ever built; but with slightly less violence and fewer drug dealers than the public housing that is available to the populous at large. Plus, find key Latin translations, like: Res ipsa loquitor. Duh. Res judicata. You lost, get over it. Respondeat superior. Sue the one with the most money.
