"Without work, all life goes rotten.But when work is soulless, life stifles and dies."
I have come across two really good books on how does the office life and its reality may turn you into a living dead; a person with no interest in his/her work, but who is, for many reasons afraid of quitting it.
The books turn the corporate world inside out and give you a clear perspective on how most of the companies are managed and perceived by an average lower level employee. Both written by fiercly intelligent creatures who used to be a middle level managers in large corporations.
Interesting views on forgotten matters.
