clever lampoon of life on the corporate ladder. A tune-filled comic gem that

Trying follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook
called How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying to climb the corporate

familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant “company
man,” the office party, backstabbing coworkers, caffeine addiction and, of
course, true love.

funny bone, How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying is a surefire hit!
