    One thought on “The Wage Slave's Glossary”

    1. Somewhat entertaining read.Winning mental image: Seagull manager: A manager who flies in, makes a lot of noise, shits everywhere and then leaves.Empire-building: Making yourself un-fireable by hoarding credit and/or prestige, and gaining control over key projects and initiatives.And this choice Bertrand Russell quote (In praise of Idleness): Work is of two kinds: first, altering the position of matter at or near the earth's surface relatively to other such matter; second, telling other people to [...]

    2. What an entertaining book! I anticipated a comical dictionary of work jargon, but this well-researched little volume is quite informative. Somehow I had forgotten that "layoff" once meant something that was temporary, for example.Don't get me wrong - the humor is still there, as when detailing (no pun intended) the basic difference between "crop Dusting" and "laying an egg".The real message may lie in the introduction, and this quote from Bertrand Russell: "Work is of two kinds: first,altering t [...]

    3. Even better than their precursor, The Idler's Glossary--possibly because while The Idler's Glossary celebrate the idle life, The Wage Slave's Glossary is an caustic, satiric attack on the rat race. Bright, philosophic, erudite, historical, contemporary, and painfully relevant, The Wage Slave's Glossary should be on every contrarian's best-seller list.

    4. I won this book from . This book was fun to read,and informative. All the information was well researched. It's a dictionary like book not a story but there's plenty added to keep you interested. This is a good book to keep in the bathroom or the car, when you need to kill a small bit of time. I could also see putting it in a work themed gift basket.

    5. I was expecting something like The meaning of Liff, but it wasn't. The introduction was very interesting, but the rest not so much. If the whole book was as good as the introduction i'd given it four stars.

    6. Capitalism sucks. Work sucks. This book is terrific, and even better, it guides me toward other books that seem well worth a look.
