Got sent the following:
Hi Pete, we are members of Not Just Another Book Club and would like to submit a recently published book, Institutionalized (ISBN 1905558007), for your book group’s review.
Here’s some of the blurb:
“From a renegade team of international corporate surveillance experts comes a behind-the-scenes, riveting tale of one of America’s biggest corporations struggling to bring best practice to life in a cruelly competitive businessworld.”
A blog has been set up to promote the book at http://www.bloodandtreasure.com where you can download the first chapter or read a couple of excerpts.
If you think your book group might be interested in reviewing it, to where should we send it?
Thanks for your consideration.
anyone interested? I’ve asked for a copy in the spirit of “free” and “stuff” and “being sent to pete”
Well, I read the first few pages online and was distinctly underwhelmed, although that could have been to do with reading it on a computer.
We could have a look, but it looks like a particularly unfunny satire of big business at first glance
Anyone else bothered to read it?
Dear God – is that write up supposed to encourage people to read it? Is it by Tom Clancy or something?? No no no no no no no no no!!!
I second that emotion! Please, no: this is sort of stuff I get sent at work every day that gets filed away immediately in the circular filing cabinet.
