Nice, silly book, but it seemed to have a hard time deciding whether to fall on the serious side of the line or the silly side. Given the choice, I'd recommend "Hardly Working" by Chris Morran, a book in the same vein with a lot more giggle to it.

This book is hilarious. It's a fun read, however, I do not think that their tactics for slipping out of a meeting unnoticed under the table would work. It was fun to imagine how that would go over in reality. Some of the information was practical and somewhat useful. Recommended for fun reading!

My favorite point about this book is the whimsical tone in which the author discusses serious topics. At times you are left wondering as to the author's intentions- did he honestly want to share survival information, or did he want to amuse?

Nevertheless, the book is an excellent light-read, especially if you are unhappy with your work life.

I recommend gifting it to:
- Recent grads
- Anybody with a corporate job
- Anybody with a sense of humor.
