Explains how many corporations are exhibiting the disturbing symptoms of a hard-to-define illness, which he terms corporate narcissism. Defining it as obsession with the image of success, Downs diagnoses this syndrome & describes methods to cure it. The problem begins with the individual narcissistic manager, whose only goal is to maintain the appearance & aura of success -- rather than the reality of worthwhile accomplishment. When corporate narcissists permeate the upper levels of management, a company relentless squeezes out another percent of profit, while squeezing employees dry. Includes dozens of vivid, real-life examples.
