I Hate People: Read This Book When No One’s Looking

Books about being a wage slave in corporate America are nothing new. But I know a whole lot of unemployed people would be perfectly happy to be one again. So I think the timing may be unfortunate for Jonathan Littman and Marc Hershon’s “I Hate People: Kick Loose from the Overbearing and Underhanded Jerks at Work and Get What You Want Out of Your Job.”
The book is entertaining, though, and the authors (who have a keen sense of office life) do a good job of identifying and naming all the bizarre people you’ll find in an office, including Stop Signs, Flim Flams, Bulldozers, Soloists, Switchblades, Hyenas, and all sorts of others. You may have your own names for ’em but you know the type.
If you’re looking for some light relief at the end of the workday, check out “I Hate People.” But it’s best to keep it out of the office. Where the bosses are eager to ferret out the misanthropes.
Special thanks to FSB Associates who provided me with a copy to review.
