KIRKUS REVIEW

The name of the game is profit, right? And this is a sort of resume of Fuchs' fifteen-year career of advising businessmen how to score. He tells you how he high.pressured a fellow commuter on the Long Island Railroad into giving him his first management consulting assignment and then parlayed that work experience into bigger and better jobs. When gifts and purchases dropped 30 percent at the Bible Prayer and Joint Worship Institute, he organized a cost reduction program. He advised one client to fire his mother, located the venture capital for another's big scheme, stemmed pilferage here, organized marketing strategy there. All along he promoted himself by the seat of the pants from a curbstone psychologist to an impressive command of business procedures and jargon. This is his rap.
