2940043873415.pngI am pretty particular about what I watch on television. My time is limited (see: new baby, dwindling daylight hours) and the competition is fierce. After thoroughly using the free Stroke Your Genius app by Showtime Inc. I realized my Sunday night viewing habits would be making a change starting January 8, 2012. Inspired by the new SHOWTIME series 'House of Lies,' Stroke Your Genius is a fun, edgy and darkly hilarious virtual handbook for the discerning management consultant professional, and will have you looking forward to the series premiere.


Stroke Your Genius is a rich multimedia playground more than anything else, presented from the perspective of Marty Kaan, ace management consultant. It is a collection of short articles, videos and clever games designed to entertain and educate. You’ll learn essential vocabulary and tactics such as PIOOTA (Pulled It Out Of Thin Air) to get you through rough work situations. You will also come to understand the why’s and how’s of creatively padding your bottom line while keeping a happy client and – perhaps most importantly – how to dress for success. The writing is witty and the games are irreverently fun – I really enjoyed the game that outlined several unusual workplace hazards. For the premium experience be sure to open the app while you're in a Barnes & Noble store to unlock an exclusive behind-the-scenes video about Marty's team.


This is one of the best apps I have used this year. Fresh, funny and with a distinctive style that emphasizes the “con” in consulting. You should download Stroke Your Genius today.

Don't bother unless you are really into foul language.
