In his helpful, witty, straight-shooting style, Bing, who based his entire career and several bestselling books on his own very special brand of bullshit, guides the reader through a plethora of bullshit jobs that pay well and demand very little knowledge or effort.

Walmart greeters, executive headhunters, aromatherapists: The people lucky enough to have secured this type of bullshit employment are everywhere, in virtually every field—from ayurvedic healing to zoo management. Bing’s handy reference explains the myriad benefits of such bullshit ways to earn a living, and details steps readers should take to land a bullshit job of their own.
