Martin Suter has been on my check list for a long time now, but until recently I just never got to reading one of his books. Now that I have, I have to admit I've been missing out on something it seems. This book is a collage of short pieces on stressed-out business managers and their issues with taking off some time. Very funny, sometimes subtle, sometimes with a more direct approach, I think I'll check out another novel by Martin Suter soon...

Die Manager aus der Business Class, diesmal beim Abschalten - im Urlaub oder bei der 'Wellness'. Kurzgeschichten in gewohnter Suter-Qualität. Das wären eigentlich locker vier Sterne - wenn es lauter neue Geschichten wären. Da ein Großteil aber bereits in anderen Business Class Sammlungen erschienen ist bleiben nur 13 Geschichten zum neu Entdecken. Schade, man sollte meinen Herr Suter habe so etwas nicht nötig :-(

Der absolute Hammer, super und wenn man genauer darüber nachdenkt auch noch wahrheitsgetreu.
Angel Serrano
En brevísimas escenas el autor es capaz de retratar a la clase business, los directivos de empresas, en su esfuerzo por desconectar, bien sea para irse de vacaciones, para mejorar su equilibrio ocio-negocio o ante grandes cambios de sus carreras profesionales. Irónico.

Eine Sammlung sehr kurzer Geschichtelchen (2-3 Seiten), gespickt mit jedem Cliché, dass einem zum Thema einfällt. Nicht wirklich Lustig, weil vorhersagbar. Nicht wirklich unterhaltsam, weil nicht nennenswert neu.
Hab's nach der Hälfte abgebrochen; ist nicht meins...

I do not really like a book made by short histories and it was my fault this time do not pay attention on that.
Nevertheless I found some histories repetitive and not really so interesting.
