The Big Bing

Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Stanley Bing

Narrated By: Stanley Bing

Publisher: HarperAudio

Date: January 2004

Duration: 5 hours 50 minutes

Summary:

The definitive collection of thoughts, assaults, and hilarious observations from America’s premier business humorist and bestselling author of Throwing the Elephant and What Would Machiavelli Do?

The Big Bing will be a mandatory addition to the library of everyone who works for a living, or would like to. For nearly 20 years, Stanley Bing’s funny, wise, pleasantly mean-spirited, and at times even useful columns have delighted readers in the pages of Esquire, Fortune and a variety of other national publications.

Bing has lived the last two decades inside the belly of the corporate beast, clawing his way to the top of one of the great multinational companies in the cosmos. And he has seen it all: the high body count after many a gruesome deal, the machine that grinds up the bones of those who stood in its way, the birth and death of executive dinosaurs (and he’s had quite a few lunches with some of them, too). The result is storytelling at its best—sophisticated, amusing, and driven by the kind of insight that only a true insider can possess.

The Big Bing provides a mole’s-eye-view of the society in which we all live and work, creating one of the most entertaining, thought-provoking, and just plain funny bodies of work in contemporary letters.

    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.

  • Anonymous

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

  • DC beltway commuter

    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.
