Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Helpful hits on how to survive an interview are balanced with equally helpful, but funnier, tips…From dealing with a ‘nightmare’ boss or coworker to escaping from a lion cage, and from removing a tie caught in a document feeder to treating a finger cut on a deli slicer (step one: ‘Turn off the slicer’), the authors know the secrets.” Publishers Weekly
“It’s highly amusing to hear how one can avoid a lion attack on the job or thwart a lunch thief (think hidden jalapeños)…good fun.” AudioFile
“Recommendations range from the purely practical (restoring coffee-stained or shredded documents) to the morally suspect (how to convince the boss one isn’t accessing inappropriate web sites on company time) to the definitely worrying (how to get a job as a brain surgeon when one doesn’t have the qualifications)…Information for handling people (problem bosses, coworkers, customers) is generally good and does offer insights into situations that can baffle employees.” Library Journal
