Frederic Thomas Selak, has completed his new book “Empty Suits”: a gripping and potent look inside the legal system and corporate America.

Selak hurried into the world of business and never stopped running, with more than forty years of fast-paced experience. Starting as a marketing research analyst and advancing through a field of suits -- some empty, some not -- he's lived a life that no author has in telling the story of "Empty Suits", a double entendre of battles fought by Joe Strate, the hero of the story who survived a world of empty suits only to enter another world of lawsuits about age discrimination.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Frederic Thomas Selak's Empty Suits is the character-driven story of businessman Joe Strate, from his beginnings as a brash young advertising man surrounded by empty suits through six other jobs and ending years later with the courtroom drama of his age discrimination suit. Along the way, there’s action aplenty as Joe chases a sneak thief across downtown Chicago, fends off a hungry gator on a Florida golf course, mocks a company physical, has a barroom brawl and other adventures. There’s the pathos of Joe forced to admit failure on the witness stand and shouting down a lying defense psychiatrist who would destroy his marriage in open court. There’s the untold, inside story of what plaintiffs are subjected to in our legal system – the grueling pretrial interrogatories, psychiatric examinations, depositions, a mandatory mediation tribunal and judicial pressure to force settlements and keep cases from trial – all a guide to those who don’t know what’s really involved in filing suit so they can fight on. And throughout, there’s Joe’s innate humor, complete with his original song parodies, humor that slowly becomes the defense mechanism of a tragically depressed man. His intolerance of bullshit and uncontrollable sense of humor make him a fish out of water. Only his talent allows him to survive.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase"Empty Suits" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
