Originally published as "Bonjour Paresse" in France, "Bonjour Laziness" is a fiesty little tome that rails against the evils of the corporate world, and "middle managers" in particular. Anyone who has worked in a low-level office job will immediately identify with Maier's disdain and frustration for corporate culture. It actually gets a bit depressing at times, and I had to put it down for this reason. I'm not in the mood for reading something so morose right now! Great translations of French words, like "claptrap," "flimflam" and "zesty." I'd love to know what the French equivalents are! "Zesty" is definitely an underutilized world - I'm going to try and use it more often!
