The Adventures of Johnny Bunko is America’s first business book in the Japanese comic format known as manga. It’s billed as “the last career guide you’ll ever need.”
The book is written by Daniel Pink, the New York Times bestselling author of A Whole New Mind and Free Agent Nation. He lectures to corporations, associations and universities around the world on economic transformation and the changing world of work.
