REVENGE OF THE TELEMARKETING VICTIMS: HOW I GET RID OF TELEMARKETERS is a hilarious tongue-in-cheek guide to getting yourself rid of the annoyance posed by the telemarketing industry. Forget the national do-not-call list. A writer, actor, and stand-up comic trained at Chicago's Second City, Les Golden has written 100 fictional scripts between telemarketers and homeowners that would REALLY make sure they don't call again.
