Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A book for the subversive worker lurking in every cubicle-from the creator and author of 52 Projects.

For anyone frustrated with the soul-killing monotony of a nine-to-five job, this quirky collection helps beat the office blues, inspire creativity in seemingly dead-end situations, and preserve a bit of integrity in a conformist corporate culture. Learn how to:

- Survive long, boring meetings with breath-holding contests
- Plot out a "sick day" calendar to maximize time off
- Write your novel on company time
- Create the most pro-worker cubicle to instill a false sense of your total commitment
- Anonymously send your boss a Happy Secretary's Day bouquet

Synopsis:

For anyone frustrated with the soul-killing monotony of a nine-to-five job, this quirky collection helps beat the office blues, inspire creativity in seemingly dead-end situations, and preserve a bit of integrity in a conformist corporate culture.
