Price: $9.95 USD. Words: 21,060. Language: English. Published: May 14, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Business & Economics » Business ethics, Fiction » Humor & comedy » Satire
This is a book for people who love to laugh and through that laughter, learn. A satire, Hard Knocks is based upon true events. Hard Knocks takes place within the law, but it is hardly a law book. Rather, it is a Life book, detailing professional wallopings and rounding off with a dose of Aesop. Witty, surprising, at times angering, but always hilarious.
