Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This book presents the world of work from the manager’s perspective. Adams’ voice sounds like the guy in the cubicle next to yours, who has learned to deal with corporate bureaucracy while poking fun at it. With just the right touch of sarcasm in his reading, Adams will have you laughing.”  AudioFile
“Adams lets loose Dogbert, a caricature of the management guru types responsible for turning those in charge into ‘fully functioning, paradigm-spewing management zombies.’ Dogbert offers secrets on how to act like a manager, motivate employees, communicate, get ahead, understand compensation programs, establish staffing levels (get rid of employees), and most important, be happy as a manager.”  Booklist
