Outlook Business
The Power of Humor at the Workplace is a compilation of jokes involving real people laced with a good amount of made-up ones as well. The reviewer had picked up the book expecting to read real gems and witticisms that would help the businessman break the ice but it was less rewarding in that respect. While not every joke revolves around the workplace, there are others that are taken out of commonplace situations. The fun quotient runs through out the book.
