What the Critics Say

"The latest addition to this wildly popular series continues - surprisingly - to display the wit, style and plain-old smart-ass insight of its multiple predecessors." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Entertaining and possibly useful"

    I haven't seen the real book so this was all new to me. It's full of possibly useful information. Some of it seems random (i.e. applying for a forklift operator job) while other parts could be handy (i.e. dealing with office gossip). The author sprinkles dry humor throughout. It's a fun listen that you may just get a useful trick from.

    "The Worst!"

    I thought this would be real valuable information. It's a joke. A true WASTE of money! Don't bother!!! This book is awful and an insult.
