Ever feel like you’ve been cheated? Well, the Diary does – and with good reason.

According to author Graham Edmonds, we are “living and working in the golden age of bullshit” and “being constantly bombarded with lies, fakery and spin”.

He explains how we are being taken advantage of in his new tome, entitled Liars Paradise: The Seven Degrees of Corporate Deceit.

Edmonds has other titles under his belt, including the wonderful Bullshit Bingo, the Diary’s favourite office read, which does exactly what it says on the cover and turns dull meetings into altogether more enjoyable affairs.

The author is obviously not taken with management speak and in his latest book, out next month, he explains how lying is used at every level at work and how damaging it can be.

The blurb also makes the worrying claim that “there’s a bullshitter sitting near your desk, in your office.”

Fortunately, everyone who sits near the Diary says that’s not true.

A more cynical soul than the Diary might suggest Edmonds’ book could become a must read for marketers, or the perfect Christmas gift for the boss who has everything.
