Decision Toolbox CEO Kim Shepherd Pens Her First Book, "The Bite Me School of Management: Taking A Bite Out of Conventional Business Thinking"

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2010) -  Author Kim Shepherd , CEO of recruitment company Decision Toolbox, discards MBA school theories like a half-eaten apple core in her new book, The Bite Me School of Management: Taking A Bite Out of Conventional Business Thinking (ISBN: 978-0-98297980-8, Price $14.95).

Corporate recruiting, "an unregulated industry with no curriculum and very few rules," is the setting wherein the author topples conventional business wisdom with small nuggets of wit and humor. The lessons, funny and concise bite-sized servings, can be applied to all industries.

The book takes a large bite out of typical corporate culture. You will feast on:

  • Uncommon truths to solve business problems in an unconventional manner.
  • A unique vocabulary (glossary included!) including the terms' fascinating origins.
  • A company culture like you've never seen before -- in a place where you'd love to work.

University of California, Irvine - The Paul Merage School of Business Professor Judy B.
Rosener, Ph.D., says this about Shepherd's new book: "Kim takes a fun and wacky approach to
tackling some very big business issues... bring your sense of humor while reading."
