Top management salaries – as one would expect – are an inexhaustible subject in these new and latest ›Business Class‹ Stories. And – the second erogenous zone of a manager’s identity – the exorbitant yearly bonus they receive. In addition, it is a book about the risks and side effects of launching an April fool prank, and it provides helpful tricks and techniques for the rhetorically challenged executive. It is also about the most closely guarded secret of the corporate world: advertising. About humour as a management tool and – something that calls for humour in itself – the discrepancy between a company’s internal and external perception as shown through thorough analysis. And about the beastly consequences of a harmless attack of lumbago. The book also presents packages of measures to get that chronically stressed private life under control once more: work/life balance, quality time and family fitness ... plus many other subjects.
»This is the sharpest critic of the Swiss Šnancial world – and it is interested in the people. Whoever wants to understand the psychology of how the Šnancial world could come to this absurdity needs this book.«Die Welt
»They are short, brilliant texts. Truly good to read, truly vicious.«Elke Heidenreich
»Some of the sentences sound almost prophetic, and the most minimalistic of the shortest stories hit their target bang in the middle. Suter has a sharp eye, enjoys exposing virtuous citizens and has a polished style. These literary morsels are a real treat.«Augsburger Allgemeine Zeitung
»One of Suter’s strengths is again the dialogues, where he uncovers things which would prefer to stay hidden inside the covering of words. An incisive and enjoyable read.«Neue Luzerner Zeitung
