Avram Davidson. The New Head Teacher. Sally Jones. Peter Bartram. The Art of Asking Your Boss for a Raise is a hilarious account of an employee losing his identity—and possibly his sanity—as he tries to put on the most acceptable face for the corporate world,with its rigid hierarchies and hostility to new ideas. If he follows a certain course of action, so this logic goes, he will succeed—but, in accepting these conditions, are his attempts to challenge his world of work doomed from the outset?

More filters. Sort order. If I were to write one sentence novel about professional life, this would be it. Unfortunately, it's already written, and as sentences novels go, it's quite long short and impressive, despite being rather lacking in decisive action and conclusive argument, but since it does exist in all its incompleteness, I won't write it, as that would be superfluous, and redundant actions should be avoided, which is something I learned from reading this sentence novel about how to get a raise, and I a If I were to write one sentence novel about professional life, this would be it.
Unfortunately, it's already written, and as sentences novels go, it's quite long short and impressive, despite being rather lacking in decisive action and conclusive argument, but since it does exist in all its incompleteness, I won't write it, as that would be superfluous, and redundant actions should be avoided, which is something I learned from reading this sentence novel about how to get a raise, and I am very grateful I learned at least something from reading it, because despite its suggestive title, the sentence novel does NOT tell you how to get a raise, as the protagonist fails in the endeavor, despite taking care to add a beautiful chart to describe the different paths leading to the boss' office in order to ask for the well-deserved raise So I won't write that sentence novel.
But I will happily add another superfluous review to my collection. Here it is. To make up for the lack of punctuation above, I will add a lot of it here: Brilliant, absolutely fantastic failure to describe how human beings function on a daily basis. Beginning with a flow chart, it shows different options that present themselves to an insignificant employee in an undefined company. The text tries to express in words how we go in circles, checking availability and options, trying and retrying to connect to our environment, without any tangible success.
