Overview

Sick of your boss? Don't despair! A recent survey showed many people regard their manager as being like the star of the TV comedy The Office. As almost everyone is managed, there is growing interest in the black art of management, often cloaked in mind-numbing, ass-clenching rot. Like the spy coming in from the cold, Jack decided to come in from the waffle. This is as funny as it is serious. While genuine issues, such as ethics in business, are buried in it, this book is a witty, acerbic hatchet job on the phenomenon of management: What managers do and why? Why expand and when to downsize? Why visit 'management gurus'? Why are people now 'human resources'? What is a bogus bank account? When should waffle and technical jargon be tactically used? What's the protocol to frogmarch someone off your premises? This grail of management is a quirky fix teaching what they don't teach you at any respectable school of management. Just what you have been waiting for.
