... is a writer, lawyer and business guy. His column has appeared in the Calgary Sun every week for the past 15 years. It has also been a regular weekly feature in the Toronto, Winnipeg & Edmonton Sun, London Free Press and the National Post. He has appeared on TV and radio. Stephen happily lives in Toronto (which he doesn't admit except to close friends).
A collection of almost a hundred of the best of Stephen Lautens' columns from the past decade (plus a bunch of so-so ones thrown in as filler).
Meet "helpful" bank clerks, "empowered" customer service reps, telemarketers, and otherwise dealing with a world that often refuses to see how little sense it makes.

Open this book anywhere for a much needed dose of laughs and sanity.
Now available as an eBook from iTunes, Amazon.com, B&N and other fine purveyors of paperless paper products.
