If you’ve ever toiled away in a cubicle or sat through the third meeting your boss scheduled to plan another meeting, then you can relate to this book. This is the third book in Jen Mann’s New York Times best-selling People I Want to Punch in the Throat series and it will not disappoint! This is the book you’ll want to accidentally on purpose leave on the desk of that blowhard in marketing. This is the book you’ll just happen to drop next the microwave in the break room hoping that Jan in accounting reads it before she reheats last night’s smelly leftovers for lunch. This is the book you’ll mail anonymously to your micromanaging boss with certain passages highlighted.

The Punch List:
Company-wide happy hours. I barely want to work with you. I definitely don’t want to have a beer with you.
The Ivy Leaguers. You do know every sentence doesn’t have to start with, “When I was at Princeton…”?
The martyrs. You get sick days—use one. Stop dragging your sniffling, snorting, coughing, sneezing ass to work and infecting the rest of us. You’re not that important.

Advance Praise for Working with People I Want to Punch in the Throat:

“I’m grateful to all of the people Jen Mann writes about in this book—the condescending managers, undermining editors, the plastic surgeon who helpfully offered free operations during a job interview, and the boss who fired her with a Post-It Note—because they made her into the rage-filled writer we all know and love.” - Jancee Dunn, author of How Not to Hate Your Husband After Kids

“I connected with Jen Mann’s book more deeply than I’m comfortable with. It was brilliant and gross and hilarious and heartwarming and then hilarious again. I literally couldn’t put it down. For what it’s worth, the only book before this one that I read in one sitting without a break was Dances with Wolves. Don’t judge me.” - James Breakwell (@XplodingUnicorn), author of Only Dead on the Inside: A Parent’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse


  • Serious flashbacks!

    By Smfleet
    I’ve been out of the office environment for some time and reading this book gave me serious flashbacks, but in a good way. I laughed so hard at Jen’s memories of working in lightless cubicles and with stingy office supply nazis. These stories are at once personal to the author because of her own working experiences and yet universal to all of us who’ve ever packed our lunch and shuffled into a place that for one reason or another was the last place we wanted to be. Kudos to Jen for making me laugh about all of that in retrospect!
