Best read out loud, this latest essential guide to modern language from the bestselling author of WEASEL WORDS and DEATH SENTENCE collects the adages of great modern managers and their armies of paid imitators who, every day, deliver key deliverables around the world.

The crisis in the world financial system is a consequence of all kinds of bogusness: from the self-justifying faith in the dogma of free markets, to the new credit 'instruments', to conflicts of interest among the credits ratings agencies, to the compliance of governments and central banks, to the language in which insiders persuaded themselves that their schemes were downright inspired and the rest of us that they were sound. This smug, perverse, insensate language was essential to the folly and inseparable from it.

While the financial crisis is the starting point for BENDABLE LEARNINGS, the book reaches into all the other realms of modern life invaded by cabalistic managerial jargon: corporations, the public service, small business, education at every level, medicine, religion, sport and politics.
