Definitely more than I had expected.  When I read the description, I was thinking that it'd be boring and full of jokes about computer stuff.  I was pleasantly surprised to read a book that was much more than that.  I could relate to a lot of it, and I laughed many times throughout.  Definitely a recommended read.

If you like Office Space, tech geek talk, and an unapologetic assessments of corporate disfunction, this is the book for you. The storyline is edgy and amusing with accompanying illustrations which help to drive the point home. If you've every worked for a corporation with their head so far up their ass but still able to ask 'Did you get the memo,' you'll relate t0 the narrator's trials and tribulations. Who ever knew that a bunch of coding geeks could lead such interesting lives? I guess I do now.
