Don't Be Needy Be Succeedy: The A to Zee of MotivitalityŠ

Front Cover
Profile Books, May 26, 2011 - Humor - 198 pages

L. Vaughan Spencer studied the Philosophy of Table Tennis and Anti-Social French at the University of the Isle of Wight and gained his MBA at the Jimmy Connors Institute in San Diego over the course of a weekend. Aside from holding motivational workshops in Watford, he also writes books; previous works include Chicken Nuggets for the Soul, Who Grated My Cheese? and What they don't teach you at Harvard Nursery School. All of his work is based on rigorous analysis - apart from when it's easier not to.

In a hilarious - and surprisingly useful - satire of the corporate self-improvement industry the satirical character L. Vaughan Spencer finally puts his wisdom into book form. This ultra-observant how-not-to guide, on everything from clothes and hairstyles to spellology and 720 degree feedback, is a based on a successful stage show that won the Edinburgh Fringe Report Award for Best Satire of 2002 and has toured to theatres and corporate conferences across the world.
