Russell Wiley is Out to Lunch, by Richard Hine (author), Aaron Abano (narrator)

Brilliance Audio, ISBN 9781469242811, December 2012 (original publication October 2010)

Russell Wiley spends his work life selling ad space in the Daily Business Chronicle, which is a print-only daily business newspaper with declining circulation. There are clear disadvantages to this, but it's not made easier by his boss, Henry, who is determined to make no useful changes, the hotshot new consultant who is trying to turn this short-term gig into a permanent job, the poor hiring choice Russell made a few month ago who is dead weight for his department but whom his boss thinks is Da Bomb...

Oh, and his marriage is falling apart, too.

Clearly, Russell has to make some major changes.

Making a mistake in a spreadsheet, a mistake that is going to cost the company millions of dollars, wasn't the major change he would have chosen.

This is light, funny, a great distraction from paying attention to today's news!

Really, it's a lot of fun. Recommended.

I bought this audiobook.
