How Not To Do Things


About the Book

Ever wondered how, despite your hardest efforts in the office, nothing ever seems to get done?

With the subtitle: the Corporate Saboteurs Handbook, summing up its raison d'etre, this very clever, very funny and very sharp little book cuts briliantly to the chase, attacking the very heart of business paralysis by analysis and the mind numbing techno-speak world of mission statements, team building and expensive consultants. Want to really understand how to get things done and achieve real results when everything around you seems to conspire against it? Read this little gem and try not to laugh out loud in the office - after all, you don't want them to know you're on to them. An invaluable tool for anyone with a sense of humour and a sharp mind who want to take on the corporate world and win. Delightfully retro and tongue in cheek, it's the thinking person's answer to tHE SECREt.
