I Hate the Office

Share this book

This work is about an often painful but always witty journey through the daily grind. From the agony of the away day via Hot Desking, office politics, romances and parties to the sheer terror of work reunions or ‘teleconferencing’, journalist and office escapee Malcolm Burgess exploits the deep vein of cynicism and rebelliousness that runs through every office. The book sprang from the author’s weekly column in London’s “Metro” newspaper and also includes a unique ‘office buzzwords’ section drawn from his “Times” column. Better than any stress-ball or executive toy, “I Hate the Office” is the essential weapon in the war against the angst of modern office life.

Malcolm Burgess is a journalist and scriptwriter who has – unfortunately – worked in offices most of his life. His recent comic series have appeared in The Times, the Mail on Sunday’s You magazine, the Evening Standard and its ES magazine, the Financial Times and the Guardian.

“‘Hilarious… cynically examines the angst of modern office life’ XFM ‘Happy to be back at work? If not, you may find solace here.’ Daily Express ‘Genuinely laugh out loud funny’ City AM ‘Amusing look at salaried life’ East Anglian Daily Times ‘Punchy, funny, telling and motivating… a must read for all workaholics!’ Professor Cary L. Cooper, CBE ‘Wry and observant’ Director ‘Highly entertaining and with a light touch amusingly articulates the cynicism and frustrations that its readers will have felt’ Personnel Today”
