9781500457433: Fire The Pretty Girl: Awkward Adventures in Business
Présentation de l'éditeur :

“Five Stars (out of Five) With dry wit and self-effacing honesty,Fire the Pretty Girl follows the author’s clumsy, fake-it-till-you-make-it journey from the hospitality industry to business school, and then to eventual success as a speechwriter for, and trusted confidant to, the movers and shakers in the corporate world” – Foreword Clarion Reviews

If John had just studied for the LSAT, none of this would have happened. He wouldn’t have had to fire the prettiest girl and the scariest bouncer at the bars he managed, wouldn’t have faked his way through business school, wouldn’t have stumbled into a career writing speeches for the CEOs of some of the world’s biggest companies. Chances are, he would have never been arrested on his way to work, faced down that deranged transvestite in New Orleans, or drunkenly told Ross Perot to “take it easy.” But John didn’t study. He winged it, and time and again in this tragicomic romp, he learns that winging it can lead to some pretty awkward adventures.

"The writing is so entertaining that even those who aren’t drawn to reading about the business world will be engaged throughout...entirely unique and engrossing. Young professionals in particular, beginning blundering journeys along their unmapped career paths, will devour it.” – Foreword Clarion Reviews

Funny, revealing, and occasionally heartbreaking, Morton spares nothing—including his own ego—as he guides readers through the vicissitudes and moral quandaries of business life.

“Insightful...funny...courageously true.” – Kirkus Reviews

Biographie de l'auteur :

John Morton is also the author of The Elephant on Sixth Street, a novella. He and his family are proud residents of Austin, Texas.
