I’d forgotten it completely till I popped in to read what others thought: the title fits the end but isn’t memorable

I’ve less than 40 pages to go. A couple of thoughts:

1. No other book (apart from an office furniture catalogue) used the word ‘credenza’ so often.

2. Towards the end, Benny Shassburger tells several people “never mind” in response to a question. “Never Mind” is my next read.

I’ve really enjoyed this book. It works really well, and has great heart. I like the way it describes how one comes to care for ones colleagues, even the annoying ones*. I’m expecting to give it an 8.

*there always exceptions.

75% of people who have actually read TWCTTE have given it 8 or more on the poll. That’s a well-liked book.

You know what... I've just checked and I gave it a 7 and I remember it more fondly than that now. So I've upped it to an 8 as well :-)

I've changed my mind. I hated it. I've given it 1. No, make that minus 1.

Got something to say?
