The Big Bing

Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Stanley Bing

Narrated By: Stanley Bing

Publisher: HarperAudio

Date: January 2004

Duration: 5 hours 50 minutes


A corporate mole's-eye view of the society in which we all live and toil, creating one of the most entertaining, thought provoking, and just plain funny bodies of work in contemporary letters.
Stanley Bing knows whereof he speaks. He has lived the last two decades working inside a gigantic multinational corporation, kicking and screaming all the way up the ladder. He has seen it all -- mergers, acquisitions, layoffs, the death of the three-martini lunch -- and has himself been painfully re-engineered a number of times. He has eaten and drunk way too much, stayed in hotels far too good for him, waited for limousines in the pouring rain, and enjoyed it all. Sort of. Most importantly, Bing has seen management at its best and worst, and has practiced both as he made the transition from an inexperienced player who hated pompous senior management to a polished strategist who kind of sees its point of view now and then.
In one essential volume, here is all you need to know to master your career, your life, and when necessary, other weaker life forms.

    Mildy amusing, but not the best of Stanley Bing's work. He's usually best when skewering business practices and behaviors, and this one seems to personal, too much of a memoir.

    Absolutley terrible. Dry, uninteresting and not coherant. I couldn't even make it through one disc much less 5 of this dribble.

    You've got to like Bing. If you enjoy his column in Fortune, you'll like this. Otherwise, skip it. Some real gems in here, and some filler. It is a lot of Bing all at once, though, even for a fan. This might be a good book mix in with other titles as it consists of many segments that stand on their own.

    I found the book moderately entertaining, but it didn't make me look forward to getting in my car every morning (like a good audiobook should!). I enjoyed it a lot more once I started skipping tracks that didn't thrill me.
