Basic plot summary
A “guide through a corporate hell”. It turned out to be not only not-your-typical “corporate life for dummies” type of book, but also shared some fresh ideas and perspectives.
My praise and critique
The book is short and concise. I appreciated it a lot. The author voices some of the concerns everyone working in the corporate environment has, at some point in life. The book shows you that there is little to no correlation between how people behave and the results of the company. At the same time, the author encourages you to be the catalyst, the change, and shows you how to influence corporate life around you. I found some parts f the book useful, some amusing, some I skipped through as known or less relevant.
If you have a few hours to spare and want to challenge yourself to some new ideas and viewpoints – this book is an exciting read.
