How often have you been embarrassed when serious fiction is discussed at the office?

Employers expect the modern executive to hold his own during literary discussions.

So do discerning social circles. You're at a dinner party. Your partner for the evening says "Forrest Gump is a Christ symbol." You realise that you have missed the point again.

End literary embarrassment forever

Simply purchase an Internet service agreement. Install six separate pieces of software and then configure them. It's so easy there aren't even any manuals.
