Hola at the Met

 Incredible - coincidence in the world of pet names, as my own dog suddenly leads the pack. Woof!

Regarding my first Work, "House of Lies":

 "A more entertaining book - about business is unlikely to appear for a long time!" raves the Economist (4/10) - read the rhapsody here

 Great honor - bestowed on the Author by the Peoples of China & Portugal as his work is pirated!

China  global domination  Brazil

 Who calls - the Author "provocative and absolutely cynical!" Why - it's merely transcendental Harvard Business newsletter

 Catch up! - to great hits of Fast Company's Consultant Debunking Unit product offerings: as in What's Bain to ya! (pdf) and Standin' for nothin'! (pdf) and 99.997% perfect 6-Sigma debunkin'! (pdf)

 IT'S HERE!! - the breath-taking Flash-animated VIDEO VERSION OF 'HOUSE OF LIES'!!

 Pleasure seek - a very sensible and guiding "Reader's Guide" to the work!

 When - will the raves stop? Never? The New York Times in 3/06 Business section opines: "Mr. Kihn spends his time telling amusing tales of partners with an overinflated sense of self-worth, and of consultants who find themselves in a situation for which they are not prepared." Read it here!

 Radio - loves the author - commentary on NPR's delicious "Marketplace" by me can be heard here (I'm at the end)

 Q&A - With your ubiquitous author in Inc. magazine

 Who says - 'House of Lies' is "Deeply intelligent and highly funny" - none other than Publishers Weekly - read the rave here!

Regarding my second office-based satirical work, "A$$hole":

 Pay an A$$hole - to speak at your funeral, debutante ball or child's birthday party! Interested? Of course. Enjoy the Author's "demo reel" here:

 Listen up - to the totally original theme song for the book: "Too Nice (A$$hole)." The artist is supersexy Julia DouglA$$. Sorry, pirates - it's actually free!

 See here now - the original A$$hole video directed by a man who should in fact be writing:

 Author's Notes - for "non-fiction" memoirs prove they're all "fiction." Don't believe me? Have your mind expanded here!

 At long last - Yes - it's true what you have been dreaming - the Author completed yet another Masterpiece. This one an outrageous satire of all that was holy. Publisher was Broadway Books. Film rights to Spring Creek/Warner Brothers. You're welcome.
