The office worker's day can be long and dull, broken up only by the odd tea break or snippet of office gossip heard round the water cooler. The Office Book is the essential companion for any discontented employee. Covering the numerous facets of working life, from office politics and pulling a convincing sickie to lunching 'al desko', it's guaranteed to banish boredom and entertain throughout the working day. It includes: CVs - a masterclass in how not to sell yourself; Emails - ill-advised emails which broadcast last night's antics to the whole company, and those horrendous forwards which should never have gone to your boss; Office Diversions - from rubbish-bin basketball to management-speak bingo, any excuse to procrastinate and decrease productivity; and, Resignation Letters - an assortment of the funniest, wittiest and most venomous letters ever penned, including the employee who quit his job to become a professional pirate. The Office Book offers a gloriously subversive and hilarious look at the world of work.
