This hilarious response to the bestselling career guide "What Colour is Your Parachute" is for those current and future cube gopher who just want to maintain their comfortable lifestyle. Readers won't have to accomplish any difficult tasks or learn how to think outside any boxes with this manual. In fact, these nearly mindless tips simply capitalize on any mediocre employee's core competency (i.e. collecting a pay check every other week). Tongue-in-cheek advice and observations such as 'The Art of Looking Busy' and 'It's Not the Size of the Boss That's An Ass, It's the Size of the Ass in the Boss' take on an added irony when juxtaposed against imaged of 1950s era office workers. The result is and endlessly entertaining ridicule of cubicle life, presented with the informed humour of today's twenty-something's (and their thirty-something wanna-bes).
