Who Touched Base in my Thought Shower? A Treasury of Unbearable Office Jargon

Humour   

Sue Baker's view...

Fellow office workers – how many times have you wished to murder at another mention of a kool-aid moment, pushing that wretched envelope or even picking off the low-hanging fruit? This is not, alas, a book that will show you how to get away with murder but it will act as the next best thing, an aid to letting off steam when you’ve had one too many meetings. Good to keep on the desk too – you never know – it might cause some office jerk to think twice before uttering more fatuous comments. Steven Poole has collected together the best – and worst of office jargon and by putting a spotlight on its sheer awfulness just might help in putting an end to such mumbo-jumbo.
