    " Just didn't care for the whole premisis. There is so much negativity in my current workplace, this type of magnifying glass just made me heartsick. "

    " Funny approach to office survival skills. Found out I already do a lot of these things already. If your job ever gets bad enough that you feel like reading this book, probably time to start looking... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K. A. O'Neil | 5/16/2012

    " This book really helped me get through some hard times in my professional life. With coping strategies and humorous anecdotes, it was exactly the outlet for my frustrations that I needed so as not to end up bitch-slapping my boss and/or colleagues. "

    " Actually unfinished. Probably a lot better if you haven't read a similar sort of independent targeted, self help style books. Like most of them, doesn't add much but uses its own jargon. "

    " cool! soloist should really love it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jay Roberts | 9/17/2011

    " Read this book in a day. Really fun read, especially the first half. It goes into the stupid mouth breathers you have to deal with at work, while presenting some interesting strategies in dealing with said people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristie | 6/24/2011

    " From my experience, the authors did a good job describing corporate America. They articulated what I felt and saw every day. I'm glad to see there are others out there with the same experience who are not willing to accept that this is the way it is or has to be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Troy | 7/17/2009

    " A nice little book about the different people in office environments and the threats they pose to your advancement, assuming that you're the type that works best alone and/or away from the bureaucracy of huge groups. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colby | 7/8/2009

    " Don't let the title fool you. The book is a reminder that too much teamwork can sometimes stifle individual creativity and effectiveness. "
