A management consultant who constantly travels to the detriment of his marriage and family life, who is terribly afraid of his b*tch of a boss because he is afraid of losing his job, one day wakes up in a city where he is to do his consulting thing to discover he is a whole new him, confident, brilliant, just a superman of consultants. It totally turns his life around, at least for a while, because, as you know, nothing last forever.
Honestly, I really don’t have much to say about this book. I enjoyed it while I was reading it, but now I am finished, I couldn’t for the life of me tell you why. He lives a boring, fearful life, then undergoes a sea change, and everything is wonderful until suddenly it isn’t, then he wakes up, has some Epiphanic insights, resigns, goes through the motions with the next company, but goes off message and gives the struggling company hope.
You will totally love the ending. While sitting in the company’s board room which has one of those glass walls, his boss is trying to demolish him in front of all the company people, and pushes her rolling chair back from the conference table, thinking there was an obstacle behind her, so pushes it really forcefully, but there was no obstacle and kazam there she goes in that heavy metal chrome chair toward the window wall, and as everyone is frozen in astonishment, crashes through, all seemingly in slow motion.
You don’t hardly get rid of unpleasant people all that easily in real life, so savor the moment.
