Book Report: Well Versed in Business by Greg LaConte (1994)
This book is a collection of lighthearted verses about the business world. It falls somewhere between an Ogden Nash volume and The Complete Geek (An Owner's Manual).

The verses are light-hearted but sometimes pointed, and unfortunately they're not very poetic. I mean, Ogden Nash isn't the most poetic of authors, but he can turn a phrase that you'll want to tweet. But LaConte's pieces are too earnest and common to warrant that.

It's not that long in reading, as it contains only 30 poems, and maybe you'll find something in it you recognize if you worked in a traditionalesque corporate office environment 15 years ago.

To say Noggle, one first must be able to say the "Nah."
