Leave the Gun, Take the Cannoli

Leave the Gun, Take the Cannoli: A Wiseguy’s Guide to the Workplace by Kurt Luchs is no kind of epic tome, but it pulled a few chuckles from me. A veteran of the popular humor publication The Onion, Luchs takes bon mots of wisdom culled from various films and TV shows with Mob ties, and then applies them to the business world with his own witty quips. Not exactly high art, but it had me laughing and pondering his intentionally twisted logic. Plus, I have to appreciate his enthusiasm for The Godfather films. Even the third one.
