Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The thing about work is that, barring jobs like land-mine recovery and slaughterhouse clean-up, the worst part isn't the work, it's the people. So Stanford's guide to the many varieties of cretins, opportunists, suck-ups, and other toxic individuals populating the workplace should be handy. Since it's being marketed as a humor book, it should also be funny. Alas, it's a little of both and not enough of either. Stanford shines in pinpointing recognizable types--the "I hurry therefore I am" person, the "we'll have to reschedule, someone more important has come up person," and the "I don't want to be here" person, to name a few, but that's the problem: they're so recognizable that they feel old hat. Even when he's at his funniest--usually in the damning emails sent by offenders--he's still subverted by the format. Not only is bright yellow type hard on the eyes, but, more importantly, once we've heard the description of the annoying cubicle-dweller as he/she is in the office, was in childhood, and will be in retirement, plus the pithy email for context, we've heard the joke four times. (Oct.)
