    eBook Hwee Hwee Tan µ µ Mammon Inc PDF/EPUB µ mammon free, Mammon Inc PDF/EPUBThis book deals with the same issue as Orwell's 1930s classic Keep the Aspidistra flying whether a person of aristic and moral integrity should 'relent' and sell their soul for money glamour and social status In Orwell it's a desperately poor and unsuccessful poet fighting the temptation to become an advertising copywriter In Mammon Inc its an infuriatingly bright Chinese Oxbridge graduate fighting the temptation of a hugely enviable positition in the world's largest companyThe elitist role is that of an 'adapter' someone who helps people 'global nomands' born in one country and educated in another adapt to life in a third though why somebody would need help adapting to life in a third country than someone adpating to life in a second county eludes meYes in Mammon Inc unlike in Orwell there is a seemingly important cross cultural element thrown in This cross cultural element though is

    eBook Hwee Hwee Tan µ µ Mammon Inc PDF/EPUB µ mammon free, Mammon Inc PDF/EPUBAs much as I hate to admit it the themes in this novel struck very close to home I could relate to every sentiment of Chiah Deng and found myself getting increasingly exasperated as the plot unravelled This was probably what contributed to my frustration in reading the book I had never encountered a book that spoke to and about myself so clearly before That being said there were several things mentioned that I wished never were But they were necessary acknowledgements and it takes a writer to bring them to bear for someone who likes to avoid issues The writing was too crisp and concise for my liking but it was a text that shed some light on the things that in my opinion are lacking in society It reflected the futility of resistance to the 'higher powers' and desire thus paintin
