Books

I’ve published three memoirs (so far) and they are all available in various forms:

House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch
and Then Tell You the Time
(Hachette) [Buy at Barnes & Noble]

  • “Funny, lucid and lacerating — does for management consulting what Julia Phillips did for Hollywood.”
    – Graydon Carter, editor in chief, Vanity Fair
  • “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
  • “Provocative … may give managers second thoughts the next time they consider spending thousands of dollars to hire a consultant.”
    – Working Knowledge, a publication of Harvard Business School

A$$hole: How I Got Rich & Happy By Not Giving a Damn About Anyone
(and How You Can Too)

(Broadway Books) [Buy at Barnes & Noble]

  • Asshole is remarkably profane, laugh-out-loud funny, and surprisingly sentimental. Marty Kihn is one Grade A Asshole.”
    – Rory Freedman, Coauthor of Skinny Bitch
  • “One of the funniest books I’ve ever read, with Kihn starring as the world’s most lovable Asshole. It 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 book is for you.”
    – Robert Sutton, author of New York Times bestseller The No Asshole Rule

Bad Dog (A Love Story)
(Pantheon) [Buy at Barnes & Noble]

  • “A surefire heartbreaking bestseller along the lines of Marley & Me.
    – Minneapolis Star-Tribune
  • “Laugh-out-loud funny … Too good to miss” – The Christian Science Monitor
  • “A bittersweet tale of renewal … An endearing read full of hope, humor and humility.”
    – Kirkus Reviews
  • “Any dog lover is bound to tear up over the love and trust that can exist between a person and their dog, which Kihn captures perfectly with a blend of earnest emotional catharsis and wry humor.”
    – The Daily Texan
