Joshua Piven , a writer and former cubicle dweller, enjoys working in his pajamas until noon. Coauthor of the Worst-Case Scenario series, he lives in Philadelphia.From AudioFile:
The authors promise a bevy of valuable information, which forthe most part has limited application. How often does one really haveto restore a shredded document, sneak out of a meeting (somehowcrawling under the conference table and scooting out, unnoticed byall), or avoid a stockroom avalanche? The authors make no apologiesfor wrapping the meat of this recording in a lot of Wonder Bread, butit's ultimately filling, if a little thin. Though it's highly amusingto hear how one can avoid a lion attack on the job or thwart a lunchthief (think hidden jalapeños), this is certainly a gag gift morethan a guide. But it's good fun.
