it was ok
Read in April, 2012

I read this hoping for enlightenment and help with easing my burden of work annoyances. Unfortunately it offered little in the way of solutions or reduction techniques and was not even that funny. I have not knowingly heard Mr. Joe Palca on NPR but from the writers' pedigrees, I had expected a more sophisticated writing style and information inclusion.
While the cover offered an interesting expected annoyance inducing situation, that particular situation was never even addressed inside.
At least it was a fast read & one I might suggest to my family members and work colleagues but with the caveat of low expectations.
