Unconvinced by beer commercials backed by country-pop power ballads, this essay destroys the myth that working yourself to death is a virtue. Unlike most rants, this one stays humorous and lighthearted. Most un-rantly of all? It doesn't drift into bitterness and overstay its welcome.
It's time once again for someone to say the emperor has no clothes. It's time to say aloud the things everyone is thinking. It's time to stop work for a few blessed moments and ask ourselves, "What are we doing here?"
It's time to say, Work is Bullshit!
A blunt, semihumorous lament about the crappiness of working life and what you can do about it. Your patriotic duty as a freedom-loving American is to goof off at work!
Humorist Allison Erahl pulls no punches in her enjoyable rant about how much work sucks. She says all the things you have thought but probably never said out loud because you want to stay employed.
Offering tips on how to avoid work while at work and how to deal with idiot bosses and coworkers, this guide is also practical as well. At times viciously biting and other times philosophically gentle, this book takes on the aspect of life in America that affects most people and yet rarely is criticized. A delightfully subversive and entertaining read not to be missed!
Welcome to The Emperor's New Clothes 2.0!
