The Office Book

Both a field guide to office survival and discussion of the woes and follies in the workplace, The Office Book is a delightfully subversive look at the world of work. Contains anecdotes, real life cover letter gaffes, resume quotes, outrageous emails, and other creative distractions that offer a lifeline from the depths of 9-to-5 monotony. Inside you'll find:
  • Office Survival Rules: Rule #99-If at first you don't succeed, remove all evidence you ever tried
  • Office Games: Including the ever-popular Jargon Bingo
  • Office Language: Fully loaded with a glossary of terms and employee written- and verbal-faux pas
  • Office Décor: Tactics to encourage your employer to purchase items, necessary or not, that will make your space more welcoming
  • Office Horror Stories: When Christmas parties go wrong
  • Playing Hooky: Sneaky maneuvers to acquire a spontaneous personal day
  • Office Waste Management: A list of ways to waste company time

With The Office Book, you'll hold the key to surviving the 9-to-5 grind-even if you'll never hold the keys to the corner office.
