Frustrated workers of the world unite!...and tune in to Scott Kenemore’s lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek, but shockingly rather helpful Z.E.O.: How to Get A(Head) in Business, a lively audiobook that takes one little joke about office drones and turns it into a full-fledged self-help manifesto. Kenemore draws his lessons from zombie pop culture, leading to lots of laughs but, more importantly, some genuinely thought-provoking wisdoms as well.
Johnny Heller’s performance of this highly humorous guide to workplace success is extremely effective, his slightly nasal voice and adept comic timing combining to create a lively listener experience.
From professional athletes like Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan to philosophers like Confucius, inspirational business books love to suggest that listeners can succeed in business and in life by adopting the traits of their famous subjects.
In Z.E.O. by Scott Kenemore, frustrated employees will finally find inspiration in a source they can already relate to: zombies! A guide for any Joe-lunchbox or aspiring-C.E.O., Z.E.O. illustrates how the lessons learned from zombies and zombie films can be applied - from the typing-pool to the boardroom - to further a professional career, increase personal and corporate wealth, and harness the tools to personal success.
Taking up where other business and personal finance books leave off, Z.E.O. provides nuts-and-bolts instructions for taking the inspirational aspects of zombies and adopting them to maximize your own personal effectiveness. Sure, you might have to knock a few heads - and eat a few brains - along the way, but that doesn't stop a zombie. Why should it stop you?

This could have been an interesting premise;. a jumping off point to an actual story. There were some wonderful analogies, one example was a historical reference to Alexander Hamilton. I'd encourage the author to use this as a draft for a future work of fiction!

Scott Kenemore is a genius. Not so sure this book is complete satire though. Many of the practices mentioned are easily spotted being applied in government an corporate today. Johnny Heller narrated this book to perfection.
