Office Space for Research Geeks...


The more I think about this book, the less I know what to think of it. On the one hand it's funny, insightful, entertaining, and satirical... a combination of elements that usually equates to an enjoyable read for me. On the other hand, I found myself irritated by the heavy-handed humor and over-done caricatures posing as secondary characters. I guess it all balances out to about a 3-star read for me.

Oh, and the story struck me as a sort of Office Space for research geeks. "You've been missing a lot of work lately, Peter". "I wouldn't say I've been missing it, Bob".
