Shepherd Mead

The new Broadway musical tie-in edition of Mead’s classic, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, is being published by Simon & Schuster to coincide with the Broadway musical that has premiered in New York and London with great success.  The original How to Succeed was published in 1952 and later inspired the beloved Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, which debuted in 1961 and won many awards.  This new edition of the book has been updated with a brilliant new introduction by the king of business satire, Stanley Bing.  HOW TO SUCCEED is essential reading for the ambitious and the lazy alike. The satirical book is part farce and part undeniable truth and social commentary.

Mead’s books have sold 10 million copies worldwide.
