Similarly, the more “provocative” an author claims her work to be, the less provocative it is. They are never a part of our dreams, Just a part of our living-hood. You work for your mwier at the end of the month, full stop.

It will help you take advantage of the firm you work for, which up until now has been taking advantage of you. We just wear different clothing. The ultimate irony may be that the complaints she directs at the business world are just as applicable to her own book.

Maier, who works part-time, has been with EDF for 12 years. Je me demande bien de quoi d’ailleurs. Denn die falle, wenn man es geschickt anstellt, nicht weiter auf. You sit next to idiots, loathe office bonhomie and crave escape. Perhaps, then, it is Americans who truly need Maier’s book.


It is a world where impossible demands are made of the young thruster who believes the words pro-active and benchmarking actually mean something and who hopes his talents will be recognized and that he will be loved and cherished.

BONJOUR PARESSE, de Corinne Maier

That we sometimes say “it’s funny because it’s true” does not imply that everything true is funny. You recoil at jargon, consider the expression ‘business culture’ an oxymoron and wish you had the guts to resign. I don’t think this black hearted cynical little treatise on the stupidity of business could have maaier from anywhere else. The slacker’s new bible.


Corinne Maier might be described as the antidote to all that. Paresde if you need a snack between chapters, Scott Adams’ Dilbert comic strip, which is wittier and substantially more perceptive than anything Maier offers, will do nicely.

You’re not judged on merit, but on whether you look and sound the part. I think the author has a horribly negative attitude about the corporate world. France is entering parresse long-promised Age of Leisure.

Given the difficulty of firing employees, she says, frustrated superiors are more likely to move such subversive workers up than out.
