Get the F**k to Work

Inspired by Adam Mansbach's spoof "Go the F**k to Sleep" comes the perfect book for that other parental type known as the Personnel Manager.

Placating words and promises of promotions don't always send a recalcitrant worker back to their duties. "Get the F**k to Work" is profane, timely, and radically honest. This version of the harried boss' plight satirizes both the all-t

A Solid 3.5 star rating.

Just finished reading this short little spoof of Adam Mansbach's work. Saul Tanpepper amazes me with his abilities to write a short work that made me think of my co-workers and how I wish I could say some of these things directly to their faces....but alas, I just get to pick up this quick work by Saul and smile to help me get through the remainder of my work day. I am becoming a pretty avid fan of Saul Tanpepper and have read about 60% of his works so I could not resist
A spoof of Go the Fuck to Sleep but it's a little too derivative and amateurish for my tastes. The illustrations are mostly collages of free clip art found on the internet (attributed in the acknowledgements, so it's legal) and most of the best lines are lifted straight from Go the Fuck to Sleep with just enough modifications to have them make sense in context but not enough modifications to have the verses scan properly.

I'm glad I got it for free but I'm sad I spent so much time on it.
I enjoyed this short book. Very entertaining. I think everyone who works can relate to this book, and I was definitely agreeing and thinking of co-workers and management as I made my way through each page. The writing style reminded me of Dr. Suess with profanity. Loved it! I'm taking it to work to show a couple of co-workers, and have a laugh before I get the fuck to work. ;-)

P.S. I received this book as a goodreads first read.

Last month I won a copy of Get the F**k to Work: The Severe Habits of Highly Ineffective People. I think this book was hilarious! If you have ever worked with other people, you can probably relate to this short story. I'm going to pass this on so someone else can have a good laugh.

not funny

This has to be the worst humor book I've read in a long time. This is just horrible attempt at parody.

I recently won a copy of Get the F**k to Work: The Severe Habits of Highly Ineffective People.

I really enjoyed this quick read. I laughed a lot and I could relate to a lot of the things Saul Tanpepper described in his illustrated dark comedy.

I would recommend it to anyone who wants to laugh at all the ways people waste time at work.
Hilarious.. even better if you're a slacker like me!
