About The Author
I wasn't what you would call Academic. My A level exam results were failed, failed, failed. With this rather career limiting result in mind, I left home, looked for a job, and found myself working the tills at a hardware store. Over the years I went through a succession of jobs including filing, furniture removal and the laundry department of a mental hospital, which was, shall we say, entertaining to say the least. My last ten or so years have been largely office based and I see on a day to day basis people desparately trying to cope with the crapness of office life. It doesn't have to be quite so bad, so I hope you enjoy these pages and that they are of some use to you.
