A hilarious yet savvy career guide for the generation that grew up with remote controls in their hands. (Who knew that you could learn so much about work from American Idol, Anchorman, and Entourage?)


In Whoa, My Boss Is Naked!, strategy consultant (and twentysomething) Jake Greene uses pop-culture references from the ’80s, the ’90s, and today to school young professionals on every stage of the entry-level experience.

Free of cliched motivational advice and bogus “steps for success,” Whoa, My Boss Is Naked! reveals everything you need to know about how to get a tighter grip on the working world without becoming a sellout corporate tool:

The reason most bands suck (why everyone needs to "commit to a sound" before they can get "signed" )
Like, listen to . . . uh . . . yourself talk, ya know? (or . . . why speech fillers are job killers)
 Party on, Wayne (rules for expanding your business network in social settings)
The rules of interview dating (tips to help you score a job)

With its irreverent humor and wisdom from the world of pop culture, Whoa, My Boss Is Naked! proves that career advice doesn’t have to be boring.
