The Profit

by John Karter

Modern and Classic Literary Fiction

LoveReading View on The Profit

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.

The Profit Synopsis


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’.
