Employees who find work frustrating and oftentimes downright weird will enjoy this book. which takes a serious but humorous look at the issues that make people unhappy and provides insight into what motivates workplace behaviour.

Loss of identity, individuality, and integrity at work; work-life imbalance; and the impact of power and politics in organizations are just some of the topics explored. Utilizing a character called the "Work Doctor," these issues are examined and explained in a series of cases modeled around a patient-doctor dialogue.

The patients' "diseases" include being a workplace chameleon, a jargon junkie, a repentant workaholic, and an addictive competitor.
