The ancient Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu taught that readiness is all, that knowledge of oneself and the enemy is the foundation of strength, and that those who fight best are those wise enough not to fight at all. These people were revered and known as "warrior-sages." Now, we refer to them as "suckers." Sun Tzu Was a Sissy teaches you how to wage war, win, and enjoy the plunder in the real world. Students of Master Stanley Bing will learn how to plan and execute battles that hurt other people a lot and advance their flags and those of their friends. Every other book on the "Art of War" bows low to Sun Tzu. This one tells him to get lost.

The premier business humorist of our time delivers indictments of (1) business leaders and (2) the revered Chinese war expert Sun Tzu. The author has the delivery of a stand-up comic as he offers countless examples of organizational practices that make people nuts. Listeners will enjoy the way his voice truly projects how much he understands corporate craziness. The problem with Sun Tzus thoughtful approach to war, Bing says, is that he would be crushed like a bug on the battlefields of most modern companies. Bing (a pseudonym) is a master at presenting his criticisms with sarcasm and dark humor. The entertainment is continuous, and the enlightenment doesnt require a notepad to sink in.
