Book description
The phenomenal best-selling author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy teams up with the brilliant creator of "Not the Nine O'Clock News"; the result is a dictionary unlike any before.

Here it is, just what the 100,000 fans who bought Barry Trotter and the Shameless Parody have been waiting for: the inevitable and thoroughly hilarious sequel to the bestselling spoof of the Potter phenomenon.

Review:
Questions, questions, questions. That's about all I have to offer on this one. Like, what is this book all about? It is a series of cartoons. Well, I *think* it's a series. The characters remain the same throughout. There are two groups of "old style" corporate executives who are pretty incompetent. Then there are the employees who work for the executives, said employees not demonstrating any particular skill. The employees seem to leave and start up small businesses.
