This book is funny. There are "exercises" that bored office workers can do to make life tolerable and interesting. The scenes are weird. It gives advice to workers who have jobs not associated with the careers they hope to obtain eventually. So what can bored workers do on the job? This book spells it out. Workers can come in late at night to paint the walls of their office black. They can set up pop cans on the floor in front of their desk and play a game of "bowling" using various weird objects for a "ball." They can attempt to repair the copy machine, dissembling it secretly and laying the parts out on the floor, hoping to remember how to reassemble it. They can crawl through the ventilation ducts to spy on events on other offices. They can make coffee that would kill a cow. They can dress like Tarzan and hang from ropes in the stairwell. There are wild and weird scenes set in this book. Office workers will get lots of laughs from this one. Good to share at an office party, or to read when taking a break. Of course, any worker who does this stuff will soon be out of a job, but it doesn't hurt to fantasize.
