Life by the Book


J. Pierrepont Finch has a name suited for the executive suite and the job of a window washer. But not to worry. With the help of a business-advice book (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying), Finch is soon in the mail room, then a junior exec on his way to being the VP of advertising. But can the book help him navigate the dangerous shoals of office romance? Rosemary the secretary is the kind of gal a guy like Finch would marry, but success in the cutthroat, backstabbing boardroom world doesn't leave time for a home life. What's the suddenly successful Finch supposed to do when it all falls apart? Trust in the book.
