It is clear from the opening paragraphs that Piers Black is a character to loathe and yet he is mesmerising a nation with his ‘message’. Will anyone challenge him and will it have any effect? You’ll have to read the book to find out but be prepared to find it a disturbing journey in to the mind of someone whose beliefs may not be that different from those in power today.
LIST OF INGREDIENTS: CRUCIAL SHAREHOLDERS' MEETING, PHILOSOPHY OF A CORPORATE KING, CHILLING PREMONITION.
PIERS BLACK 'revered by men and universally desired by women, a legend in his own Armani suit' has a message to deliver. When he pours forth his wisdom on a variety of subjects ranging from greed and love, to friendship and mobile phones, it is an occasion that attracts more attention than a presidential photo call at the White House.
Inspired by Kahlil Gibran's cult philosophical work, The Profit is a parable for our times, exposing the uncompromising worldview of an international tycoon, whose gross lack of conscience at times gives way to humane insights about the ‘me society’.
