From the Back Cover
FT's Lucy Kellaway takes on business hypesters and business fads -- and they'll never be the same! The first management book for skeptics -- like reading Andy Rooney, Dilbert, and Dave Barry all rolled into one! Empowerment, flat structures, and other here-today-gone-tomorrow fads. A skeptic's view of management consultants, training, leadership, consumers, and more. Lucy Kellaway writes a weekly business and management column for the Financial Times that has been called FT's answer to Dilbert, Dave Barry, and Andy Rooney, rolled into one. If you've ever read her work, or if that description intrigues you, then don't waste a minute: get her new collection, Sense and Nonsense In the Office. Sense and Nonsense in the Office offers no tips, no formulas, no panaceas, no handy hints. What it does offer is a set of strong opinions likely to either confirm your own, or infuriate you -- either of which is a blessing in these bland times! Kellaway writes about true life, work and management as they really are. From leadership to stress, office design to empowerment, nobody does a better job at taking on the ill-considered hype and fads that keep washing through the workplace. If you're a skeptic, you'll find Kellaway a true kindred spirit.
