You know that guy or girl who never seems to be doing any work, always seems to be talking, never finishes a project, and despite that still seems to get promoted? They could have written this book. Perhaps one of them did.

Grudges, Rumours & Drama Queens is the ultimate manual for those working within, or trying desperately to understand, the government machine, or any other administrative quagmire such as multi-national behemoths and other such large companies or institutions.

This manual will take you from the basics, such as how to avoid making decisions, the importance of grudges, and passing the time on a quiet day, right up to advanced skills such as inventing meaningless jargon, dealing with politicians, surviving efficiency drives, and most importantly, avoiding the blame. It will ensure your teflon-coated success within the bureaucratic machine!

Grudges, Rumours & Drama Queens used to be titled You Can't Polish A Turd, but the powers-that-be decided that Turd wasn't a proper government approved word. Those government auditors and policy wonks (at the highest levels I must add!) approved Grudges and Rumours as appropriate for a book about government and bureaucrats - and I thought they were a bunch of drama queens - hence the new title. At least, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
