My wife got this from the library for me. I'm not sure why, I love my job, I mean except for the part where it sucks the life out of me. Other then that it's not too bad. This book, on the other hand, is that bad. Apparently sucking up to your boss will make you happier at work, who knew. I finished this book in just a couple of hours, it failed the 50 page test but I kept reading so it's my own fault. I can't recommend this book to anyone.
The book started out really good, and then lost momentum.

I found much of what it said to be true, but had a difficult time as the book is geared more towards people in corporate jobs and I am not currently in such a situation.
