    I liked his method of inserting quotes from various authors inside boxes. Clear writing, humorous. co-worker descriptions: --deidre: helmet-like Jr League bob gives weird impression of removability --kevin: private life either corrupt and outlandish or insufferably dull. wife Kay did alll the outgoing recordings for our co. voicemail system; late-nite-dj-type voice---Kay is one woman I'd marry sight-unseen I liked his method of inserting quotes from various authors inside boxes.

    The supplemental readings were interesting and related but interrupted the flow of the story, which made this a much more difficult read than it had to be. You can see that the writer is talented though, and provides humorous descriptions and stories. My suggestion is to read the story straight through and, when you feel a natural stopping point, go back to read the supplemental readings.

    This is a clever book written by a Gen X aged employee who is restless in his day job and has written (at his day job perhaps?) quite a few creative things about his workplace the people around him in a somewhat cynical attitude.
