Congratulations! You’ve been hired at your dream job. Given how competitive it is in today’s world, that’s quite an accomplishment. It takes countless hours to search through job postings, go through multiple rounds of video interviews, and click that “I’m not a robot” thing on the employer’s website. Exhausting!
Now that you’ve put that stress behind you, it’s time to move onto new stress. Luckily, you won’t have to wait long, because there’s nothing quite as nerve-racking as the modern workplace.
Unlike most workplace books, however, I Hope This Email Never Finds You: The Official Guide to Blissfully Surviving the Modern Workplace—this one won’t sugarcoat, deflect, or mislead. Author Ken Kupchik won’t bore you with some business titan’s life story, and he won’t try to convince you that if you just follow a trendy new self-improvement fad, you’ll be promoted to CEO.
This book puts aside the motivational screeds, productivity hacks, and pop-science and instead focuses on things in the workplace that truly cause us grief in a lighthearted, entertaining, and (most importantly) cynical way.
