Bull shit (n.; adj,; adv.; etc.)

1: deceitful language; lies 2: jargon or cliches intended to place a positive spin on something plainly negative 3: anything said by a politician, CEO or PR flak 4: new age, modern, postmodern, cutting edge, meta or Xtreme 5: pretty much everything you read or hear these days.

A hilarious, irreverent and generally subversive compendium of what passes for discourse today, The Dictionary of Bullshit savages politics, self-help, marketing, the media, all things new age, statistics, science and business.

From the political credibility gap (aka lying) to the oxymoronic instant classic, whether you're in a paperless office or have been out-sourced, The Dictionary of Bullshit is an all-out offensive against all that is phony, stupid and just plain meaningless.

Nick Webb was a publisher for nearly 30 years before turning to writing. The former managing director of Simon and Schuster UK, he describes his past life as "paddling a small raft across an ocean of bullshit." His biography of his friend Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, was published in 2003. Nick is married and lives in East London with his wife and daughter.
