Product description


Laugh-out-loud funny * Newsweek on DISRUPTED * Skewering corporate jargon, management science and, worst of all, enforced fun, Lyons' waggish jeremiad lays out how the world of work has changed for the worse. * Tatler * Funny and frightening. * The Sunday Post * Entertaining... A worthwhile and disturbing read. * Sunday Business Post * Lab Rats defies easy description. I sputtered laughing and choked crying (literally, not figuratively) as I read it. Yes, Lyons gives Silicon Valley the thrashing that it, alas, largely deserves. But in the final third of the book, he offers us an effectively illustrated way out - an approach to work and business that puts people first. * Tom Peters, bestselling author of In Search of Excellence * Lyons is very funny journalist... Much of his polemic rings true. * FT * Entertaining * The Economist * A lively and spirited takedown... Its core argument is surely irrefutable. * Guardian * Fascinating, thought-provoking, hilarious and sometimes harrowing. * Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of The Happiness Project *
