Corporate Crap & Other Dubious Wisdom Review

Let me start by saying, I was intimidated on several different levels, doing this review. First, by the title of D. Brooks weblog. Corporate Crap & Dubious Wisdom brings to mind business articles, and wisdom suggests exactly what I did think. Here is an intellegent goodlooking man, who had spent decades in the business world, and was about to impart his wisdom to those reading his blog. And I wouldn't understand it, or get it, or would find it dry and statistical. Which brings us back to I wouldn't get it, so how would I review it?

And I was wrong on these assumptions. DB's Corporate Crap & other Dubious Wisdom is well written, interesting, and entertaining on as many different levels as I had been intimidated on. He imparts his wisdom on employment and economical matters that are comprehendable to the layman. Using examples, to illustrate his points. One post I enjoyed reading was Exiled at 50, where he gave financial advice that is not only useful to the baby boomer generation but to everyone. And encouraged all his readers to think about the issues facing workers today, compared to generations past.

DB's categories for his posts are Corporate, Humor, Friends, Dubious Wisdom, Crappola and Bullying. And the topics of his posts have a wide range, from the workplace, to how to answer the tough questions women pose to their men. This was funny, and maybe a little eye openeing as a woman who has asked, "Does this make my butt look too big?"

One of the qualities that stands out about his writing, is his ability to keep his posts down to earth, humorous on ocassion, informative and polished. DB acknowledges his commenters, and communicates a warm politeness in his responses.

On a personal note, he lives in Hawaii, and has gone back to college to pursue his advanced degree and "inflict all that hard earned wisdom on the youth of America." (His words) ;-)

One of the fun aspects of DB's weblog is his interaction with the beautiful Bitchatude his significant other, who also keeps a fun and informative weblog. Besides being a striking intellegent couple, they both exude a warmth and a sense of fun that draws others to them.

DB is also one of the few men involved in the Malicious Bitch Club or MBC as president of the club. I've been to MBC a few times, but not enough to be famalier with what they are all about. I do plan on looking in there further though.

In conclusion, I would highly recommend DB's Corporate Crap & other Dubious Wisdom to everyone. He's informative without being dry, entertaining with style, and interactive with his readers/commenters, which always wins points in my book!

And he completed the best of the bestest of Meme's, which makes him open, and willing to just play! Thank you DB for allowing me to review your blog.


  • Yeah, he's a tricky sort ;)

    Great review 3T! You hit it straight on :)

    PS And no, I'm not the inspiration for THAT question--ALL women know when their own butts look too big!

  • I have to give credit where credit is due... B'Tude is the inspiration for the softer parts of many of the posts. No darnit... not the butt... the warmth :)

  • DB & Btude~
    You are a dynamic couple! And getting to "know you" via the blogosphere is one of my top 10 reasons I'm glad I entered it! And if the two of you are ever in Arizona, I would love to meet you! Hey, I know you have other blog friends here in AZ, including one of mine, Jade!:-)
    Thank you for giving me the opportunity to get to know you better!

  • *bowing deeply* Now I ask you... just how many guys can pull off that "Rebel Without a Cause" look in front of a kids playground toy? lol

    Thank you, thank you, thank you very much.

  • Yep, you are right-on with both of them. So, when are you booking your trip to Hawaii? They are exactly the same in-person.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog today -- excellent advice.

    LOL. He IS goodlooking! :-)

    I had no idea that pic was taken in front of kids playground equipment! Regaurdless, you pulled off "the look"! ;-)

    I would have loved to book that reservation yesterday! But life isn't going to allow for a vacation like that for some time.
    You're welcome Becky, and it was my pleasure.:-)

    Thank you for saying so.:-) Always glad to have you visit my site! I like doing the reviews, I end up seeing far more of someone's blog, when I study it for reviewing.
