Publisher's Summary

Work is bad enough, but what if things go really wrong? Hiding under your desk is not enough. Be prepared for the crises that lurk in the office, on the loading dock, in the lunchroom, and out on the sales floor. From savage bike messengers to a bag of pretzels stuck in the lunchroom vending machine, peril is everywhere. Learn how to sneak out of a meeting, treat a deep-fryer burn, and survive a stockroom avalanche. Expertly remove a dent from the company car, extract a tie caught in the photocopier, and survive a workplace romance. Hands-on, step-by-step instructions guide you through these and other crises that can strike between 9 and 5, or on the swing shift. With an appendix of useful interview phrases, a career-path decoder, instructions for playing Jargon Bingo, and more, this is the one desk reference you can't live without.


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.
