Mr. Talbott utilizes a swift and humorous pen to teach and entertain page after page. Unfortunately or fortunately we have all been through a variety of what Talbott depicts, now we have the solace to sit back and have a laugh about it!
Take the bullets out of the chamber, iron your shirt and don't forget your briefcase and this book on your way to your nine to five! Thanks Mr. Talbott!
Pinhead has been there done that. This hilarious romp through
the world of corporate travel, the cubicle farm, the HR petting zoo, and the management jerks from hell will be familiar to the veterans and a caution for the newbies and wannabees.
Highly recommended, but be advised, take just a bit each day
lest you be overcome by a mixture of unstoppable laughter and the queasy feeling that these are the folks who are running/ruining the business world.
What I liked especially about this book is that it serves both as a look in the mirror for the mid-level wonk, the VP,the HR dominatrix, and the CEO but a you-are-not-alone solace for the employee/customer/victim.
Read and enjoy. Get ready to laugh. Get ready to act on and advocate for change in corporate America!! Nomatter what your situation, I believe you will find many things in the book applicable to you.
Thanks Mr. Talbott for your honesty and realness in addressing this issue!! Please write some more!!
If the first names of the CEOs of your former employers are Joe, or Bernie, and have recently been Indicted by the Justice Department, you should read this book. As Jimmy Buffet once said, "If we don't laugh, we'll all go insane!" A truly sarcastic and humorous work of art.
If you are a public speaker, steal from this book. If you are a consultant, quote from this book. If you are a working stiff like me, read this book and laugh and remember what Mama says, "Misery loves company."
