I enjoyed this book. It was very much in the British humor-type. An obvious satire of corporate life, with likable characters. I don't think I can say too much without giving a lot of it away, so I'll just say that the idea of a company without customers is priceless!

Max does it again with a satirical view of the business world, working conditions, and human interaction. If you have ever worked in a cube farm (or thought you wanted to) this book will make you laugh!

For anyone who has ever worked in a large corporate environment, and spent sleepless nights pondering upper management's seemingly meaningless decisions and the heartless treatment of their employees. Oh, and it's really funny too.

Over-the-top, but brilliant as ever.

A fun read, hard to put down. Funny, especially if you done the cubical thing!

It's not his best. Maybe I'm too old for it. It seems like Jennifer Government but without the beautiful irony and emotional attachment that made Jennifer Government worth reading. It's not a terrible book really, but it's not great either.
