“Escape from Cubicle Nation”

I should be in bed but I am compelled to get all the words out of my head so I can sleep tonight! Plus I am listening to an old electronica cd (I know, I can hear all the music snobs sighing 🙂 )

Today I spent an hour at Chapters searching for a book on business that I’d seen a while back on one of their open display tables. I’d written down a quote from the book that I liked that I was going to send to a friend. I never sent the quote and didn’t think to take down the author’s name or the name of the book. I only remember that I was a little embarrassed by the title of the book and almost didn’t pick it up!

I’ve been thinking about this book for a few months now and went to the book store in search of an embarrassing titled book in the business section.

I didn’t find the book I was looking for but was pleasantly surprised to find “Escape from Cubicle Nation” by Pamela Slim. This book encapsulate’s so many things my friends, coworkers and acquaintances and I have discussed numerous times about “cubicle nation”.

Because I do not have a large bank account and can’t afford a lawsuit (even though that nice man gave me his business card?! Another story for another day!) I will not start typing out the book, but next time you are in Chapters I highly recommend picking up this book and flipping through it, even buying it for your own personal library.
