Overview

How does it feel to know your career has been a waste?

If you’re concerned about waste in government, then read this book!

At the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, statistician Rick Schmoyer is an ordinary Joe Schmo. Amidst government bureaucracy, bloat, and waste, he makes a living, but not a difference, and although he gets an occasional boost in such unlikely trappings as the Paperwork Reduction Act, his career teeters on the brink of failure. Outside work Rick finds recurrent salvation in bicycling Tennessee back roads and canoeing TVA lakes, but even in the roads and lakes, he sees bureaucracy and waste. At work, when his boss directs him to work at least forty-five hours per week—despite an accounting system that requires exactly forty—it’s the last straw. Rick contemplates the Coal Creek Rebellion, an 1890s labor uprising that occurred nearby!

If you have ever felt like a voice unheard, you should read this book!

A PhD statistician's true story...a thirty-year memoir of waste.
