I got this book as a Christmas gift. I have to say that it's really funny, but if you every did anything from this book you would get FIRED ASAP! And might not get a job anywhere else if word got out. All that said it's still a very funny book.And also a very fast read.

While the chicken bomb is funny, I prefer the more subtle ideas in this book. For example, "the best way to flex your manipulation skills is through a simple letter-sized sign that first mimics the existing micro-fascism in the office and then attempts to dismantle it. All of these signs project an unexplained -- and grossly overly enthusiastic sense of of authority." The examples in the book are hysterical.

Humourous easy adorable book to lighten up the seriosness at the office. I do not know if I would do any of these if I worked in such aplace, but simple light reading and can use the ideas on april 1st or other such celabrations, birthdays, get togethers. Different things to do, not even seen on Pinterest as of yet, by me anyway.

Borrowed from a co-worker, a fantastic book(let) to peruse AT WORK! The perfect tool for the disgruntled worker or just anyone wanting to wreak a little havoc. Careful, you will be lulled into thinking "I bet I can do that and not get caught."

Two words... Chicken Bomb. Nuff said.

Not worth buying. I ordered this book after it got a nod in Entertainment Weekly. This took me 15 minutes, tops, to read cover to cover. It is photo dominant, and the tongue-in-cheek humor seems to miss the mark more often than not.
