What's the Deal with "Chuck" vs. the Business World?

"With some wonderful, insightful comedy, the team creating, writing and producing Chuck has provided a wealth of examples on how not to manage a business, and how not to behave in the workplace. We all learn not only from our own mistakes and failures, but also from the mistakes and failures of others. Business case literature is as rich with examples of bad decisions and failure as with successes in the marketplace. By climbing into Chuck, however, I found a few valuable positives as well. Overall, Chuck offers tips covering a wide range of areas, including day-to-day business management and operations, career choices, and the balance and priorities that must be established between work and personal life."
