How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying Broadway

Before there was "Mad Men," there was this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award- winning musical where power, sex, ambition, and greed are all in a day's work at the office. A window washer climbs the corporate ladder with the help of a trusty manual, but when the boss's arrogant nephew attacks, and the book doesn't have the answer, he'll have to depend on his own wit and creativity to survive. "It stings mischievously and laughs uproariously" - The NY Times
