Dear Dan Kennedy,
Thanks for making me laugh out loud at work. Those are the best times in my little beige cubicle. I have a built in affection for Rock On and actually reading this book has only helped that grow. (My former coworker and I, at our former job, made a power ballad about bookselling in a cheesy bookselling competition that we won.)

The book is a funny paranoid look at office life. It's like the inside of my head, but better sense I can laugh at it. Office life is the same everywhere, even in a record company. It's also a great look at how working in an area you have always loved might end in sadness and disillusionment.

He talks about Jewel's remake/selling out campaign that perhaps started with irony and ended with none. It was a fun, fast listen. (3.5 stars)
