"Entertaining Executives" is equal parts thoughtful workplace introspective and an entertainingly funny comedy that keeps you laughing from start to finish. It's drama filled and richly written, delving deep into the complexities of the "executive" mindset and all of the foibles, drama, hilarity and idiosyncrasies that come along with it. The story is entertaining with fully developed characters, each one adding layer after layer to this funny tale and bringing to light the human behaviors (both those that are obvious and those that are more subtle) that we encounter every day. Robert Spillane does a wonderful job of entertaining the reader while at the same time exploring everything from leadership and authority to office politics and workplace learning. Overall, this managed to give me a more insightful look at the workplace and the complexities therein while getting me to laugh at the same time. L. Collins Entertaining Executives was a very entertaining and intriguing book from beginning to end. The book is written in the format of a play which was something I had not seen in a while but something that I found to be very amusing as you go through it. All of the characters, my favorite probably being Brian, are all unique, whimsical, and very well developed as you progress through the play. The author did a great job of making this a very humorous entertaining read while at the same time allowing some serious truth to flow through the story. Very captivating read with just the right amount of great lines on every page. Monica G Oh, goodness. For those of you who've been in an environment entrenched in the horrors and humors of office politics, get ready to relate. Entertaining Executives is a fun look at office management reminiscent of Office Space - or of Dilbert, if Dilbert were consistently funny and less obtuse. There are many truths here buried in the hilarity that management doesn't like to admit, that will make readers from the upper echelons of offices cringe with recognition. Besides, this is genuinely witty, sarcastic, and humorous, and that's a rare find in the wacky and overdone genre of humor books these days. And of course, it's got relatability for days for those of us who have spent our lives in the corporate grind and at the watercooler. (With my history in the much belittled Human Resources vertical, I'm certainly part of that group.) Highly recommended. Sam G. This well-written and organized read was exactly what I was in the mood for! Not only does the plot keep you laughing from page to page, but the character dialogue is also strangely addicting. Additionally, the unique plot left me thinking long after I had finished the book. Overall, not only does the theme of this read keep you interested, but the characters do as well. I definitely look forward to reading more from this from this author in the future! Lindsey Entertaining Executives by Robert Spillane is the perfect dinner theater fair. With a wild cast of office managers and a psychologist on a mission, we get to just sit back and watch, as they all take part in a training exercise and program that is not only hilarious, but really cuts to the chase of what's really going on in the dynamics of human behavior versus management leadership in the everyday world of business executives and offices. The book reads like a play, though, it is very light on stage directions and character movement, all too good effect. The dialog is the star of this delightful two-act story. You can t go a few lines without laughing. A lot of one-liners and zingers, the kind of laughs that catch you off guard. An enjoyable, fun read. D.
