Time to add this one to the bookshelf, people – if for no other reason than for all of the graphics and charts, including the two I’ve shared here:

The book is called “The Curriculum” and it’s from Stanley Bing, the guy who brought us “Crazy Bosses”,  “Sun Tzu Was A Sissy: Conquer Your Enemies, Promote Your Friends, and Wage the Real Art of War,  and the classic “What Would Machiavelli Do? The Ends Justify the Meanness”:

Can you really pack a two-year, $250,000-curriculum in a single book? Author and longtime Fortune columnist Stanley Bing sets out to do exactly that in “The Curriculum: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Master of Business Arts.”

If the concept strikes you as preposterous, a peek inside will do little to dispel these doubts. From the accreditation body, the National Association for Serious Study (“dedicated to a number of serious studies”),  to a core curriculum that includes “Not Appearing Stupid” and “Crazy People,” the book offers a satirical take on an overly staid subject.
