Bestiary for Business: Adapted from the Fables of Aesop for Gentle Corporate Readers and Raiders
|The key to this book lies in the last word of its subtitle: "raiders." Schelby adapts Aesop ably to the corporate world of today. Six at least of the first 14 fables are taken directly from Aesop and then adapted to the corporate world. Aesop continues to appear along the way. Grandville's illustrations are well chosen and well placed. A particular feature of this presentation lies in the several quip quotations at the end of each fable. My prize goes to Lady Violet Bonham Carter: "Sir Stafford has a brilliant mind, until it is made up" (8). There is a T of C at the beginning. Printed upon demand. 77 pages. About 6" x 9".
