For your review: Executricksters through the ages

June 8, 2008, 5:22 PM UTC

Today we offer for your delectation a vast galaxy of individuals who best embody the skills and crafts described in my newest work, Executricks, or How To Retire While You’re Still Working.

This gallery of luminaries celebrates those whose powers of delegation, virtual absence, abuse of status and hasty decision-making prowess has enabled them to enjoy the fruits of a complacent retirement while still on the job, collecting big perks and bucks.

Elsewhere in this neighborhood, of course, you may also take our quiz and report to me on any executricks you yourself have discovered in your daily travails.

Me, I’m going to take the rest of the week off, right after a hard-working business lunch.

Have a good one, ladies and germs.
