Formally this book is a work of humour, and C Northcote Parkinson alternates between genuine and imaginary statistics and examples to back up his arguments. But as the saying goes, many a true word is spoken in jest. Anyone who aspires to a position where he or she will be trusted with responsibility for spending public money should read Parkinson's amusing accounts of how and why money can be wasted and bureacracy tend to increase.
Most of the examples given, though not all, are in a British context but the arguments would apply to the need to control the costs and size of bureaucracy and administration in any company or government in whichever part of the world the reader may be.

While I am communicating, I have become frustrated by my attempts to enter the six digit codes which I have been continually been sent over the last few days but have not been recognised even after I have typed them in a minute or so after receiving them. I am now blocked until further notice from making any more orders.
I need specific help.
