The author is a battle-scarred veteran of corporate politics and the dictatorships of any number of wannabe Stalins. He has long since abandoned (or been abandoned by?) full-time corporate life. Although he occasionally still dreams of becoming editor of MAD magazine!
He found the vast majority of those he worked with over the years to be wonderful and competent people. Alas, amongst them there was the occasional bonehead who provided the inspiration necessary to write this book (and these people well know who they are).
