Detailed Description


By Stanley Bing

This book by bestselling author Stanley Bing examines the many attractive jobs now available to those who are serious about their "bullshit" and prepared to dedicate their working life to it.

What 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. In virtually every occupation, from advertising to yoga franchising, lucky individuals who "work" in these coveted positions enjoy the best lives imaginable - they are paid well, they rarely break a sweat, and their professions are highly respected, because nobody really knows what they do.

At once funny, useful, and tolerably philosophical, this groundbreaking work takes a close look at 100 bullshit jobs - the money they bring with them, the actual tasks and activities involved (if any), and famous and successful examples of each position, who will provide the neophyte with inspiration.

Most crucially, Bing goes on to offer what others so far have not - a clear, concise strategy to help job seekers at every level reach for that brass ring, knowing full well that it may be attached to the nose of a bull.

320 pages. Softcover reprint. 2007.
