Abstract:

If you've ever wondered why you're discussing a bake-off or herding cats in a business meeting, then it's probably time to get a grip on Green Weenies.

This reference guide to business terms - both humorous and serious - navigates the oftentricky waters of corporate America. For anyone who's found himself up the creek without a paddle, this glossary will provide a better understanding of today's boardroom lingo. You'll need this book if you: Think "Chips and Salsa" are something you order at a Mexican restaurant, Confuse a church revival with a "Come to Jesus Meeting", Believe "Psychic Income" is what clairvoyants get paid, Still think.

"Swag" is a style of lamp.

Confused? Don't be! Green Weenies & Due Diligence contains more than 1200 terms commonly (and sometimes not so commonly) used in today's ever-changing business climate. From the solemn to the silly, Green Weenies & Due Diligence offers a refreshing and relevant overview of business jargon. You will find it both educational and enlightening. Whether you're an old hand or a young pup, there's something to be learned from this book! Book jacket.
