   Head can't believe it's not butter.




And here it is - actual real praise for "House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time" . . .

"A more entertaining book about business is unlikely to appear for a long time."
  - Economist.com

"Exceedingly smart and funny ... Kihn's breezy, Jay McInerney-inspired writing renders the damnable daily life of the management consultant precisely, often hilariously."
  - Salon.com

"This highly intelligent and deeply funny debut memoir skewers a segment of the economy that nearly every white-collar worker has learned to fear and loathe: consultancies. . . . His reconstructed dialogue from within his (unnamed) firm and from his time serving clients is alone with the price of admission."
  - Publishers Weekly

"Kihn spends his time telling amusing tales of partners with an overinflated sense of self-worth, and of consultants who find themselves in a situation for which they are not prepared."
  - The New York Times

"Kihn, a former Emmy-nominated writer for VH1's famed 'Pop-Up Video,' holds few punches in his often laugh-out-loud dissection."
  - Inc.

"Simultaneously hilarious and frightening . . . An insider's view of the burgeoning world of corporate consulting."
  - Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Provocative and absolutely cynical . . . At times House of Lies reads like a script for Saturday Night Live."
  - Harvard Business School's Working Knowledge

"Funny, lucid and lacerating - Martin Kihn does for management consulting what Julia Phillips did for Hollywood!"
  - Graydon Carter, editor, Vanity Fair

"A hilarious book! And important, too. It will be huge."
  - Tad Low, creator, "Pop-Up Video" (VH1)

"Such a funny and disturbing cautionary tale!"
  - Kurt Andersen, author "Turn of the Century," host NPR's "Studio 360"

"With House of Lies, we can rest assured that there are guys like Martin Kihn out there to pull off the emperor's clothes!"
  - John Rolfe, co-author "Monkey Business: Swinging Through the Wall Street Jungle"

And from those who enjoyed "A$$hole" - their advice? Run, don't walk!

"Kihn's got a great ear for dialogue - and a comedic sense worthy of Second City."
  - Booklist


"A$$hole is one of the funniest books I've ever read, with Kihn starring as the world's most loveable asshole. A$$hole is also remarkably useful in a sick sort of way. If you want to get rich through fear and intimidation, and don't mind hurting people along the way, this is the book for you."
  - Robert Sutton, author of New York Times bestseller "The No Asshole Rule"


"A$$hole is remarkably profane, laugh-out-loud funny, and surprisingly sentimental. Marty Kihn is one Grade A A$$hole."
  - Rory Freeman, co-author of New York Times bestseller "Skinny Bitch"


"Marty Kihn takes us on a journey of what's behind male gamesmanship, bravado and the corporate mask - not to mention other side-effects of too much testosterone. This book is a must read for all women who have wondered whether men feel even the same emotions as women."
  - Sherry Argov, author of New York Times bestseller "Why Men Marry Bitches"


"Prepare to be riveted and to laugh out loud. What's it like when the nice guy finally decides to take the bull by the horns to become like those complete jerks who seem to get all the girls, all the cash, and all the glory? Through humor and vivid storytelling, Martin Kihn takes you through that journey until he discovers an astonishing lesson."
  - John Alexander, author of "How To Become an Alpha Male"


"Martin Kihn turns being an a$$hole into a chosen identity -like being a Republican or being a banker. You'll either find this book seriously informative or ridiculously funny."
  - Ori Hofmekler, author of "The Warrior Diet"
