This is a hilarious book on corporate life. It guides the reader through a satirical journey of all the tips and tricks one needs to be average. All of it is of course not to be taken literally. The book holds a mirror to the shallow corporate culture that most of us have either fallen prey to or are subjected to every day of our lives. Job be damned is that kind of humor which helps you get through the rat race. Must read for everyone who ever had a job.

Job Be Damned is an absolute must-read for everyone, freshers and seasoned professionals alike. I would even include those beginning their college life in that group because Job Be Damned will make a lot of sense when you are facing projects and seminars. These are your trial runs before work life starts. Piparaiya begins with an excellent strategy - he gets the book going in order from resumes to interviews and then office life and finally giving up! Twenty chapters to get you through the wisdom gained in as many years.

This book is HILARIOUS. If you work in an organisation or have ever been in one, you’ll understand yourself relating to every word written in this book.

I rarely read Indian authors but the cover of this one got to me. There are hidden jokes on it! From padding up your CV to managing an appraisal to motivating your employees, this book talks about everything—but with just a hint of chaat masala and salt. :D

Do read. It’ll leave you with good jokes for your next boring work day.

Rishi Piparaiya's second book- job be damned is a satirical guide on how to be the best average employee. He guides the reader, that how as an employee we can stay out of the radar on the job & still keep the job after goofing up in various disastrous ways. The book is divided into 6 chapters & walks the reader through the new employee phase, middle & senior management phase, retrenchment, off shore sites activity & finally there is a fun filled survey about whether one stay in the job or resign from the same. This book doesn't feel like a caricature version of corporate life. Any employee from any sector will be able to relate the incidence or the norms of corporate life mentioned in the book. The language is crisp & clear. And Rishi Piparaiya delivers good punches through out the book. For better effects of this book, read this book in your company bus or vehicle, it will be a great ice breaker and if you are feeling low at work , then read at work. This book will surely makes anyone's day brighter and one more less dull day at work.

An Interesting read that reveals some harsh truths, and uncovers mysteries of the corporate world that are in fact normally swept under the carpet.
A tell it, like it is, book which makes for a fun read.
The book states that pretty much everybody is an average employee and the book will help you be the best average employee around.

To know how and why - read the book.

I would suggest to personally take it with a pinch of salt :)

Job Be Damned is an insider’s insight into corporate life, presented with incredible wit and sarcasm. A damned good book that brings corporate satire to centre stage in India. At certain points, the book loses its flow, but overall it is a brilliant read. If satire is your thing, and you work in a corporate environment, you are bound to love this

If you think you are stressed out in the corporate's day job, need a break, you must pick up this book! You will be drowned by the utterly hilarious riot from the first page till the last! Maybe it happens daily in the day-to-day life for most of us! But, just imagine that someone has taken the pain to pen it down and bring it out as a book, and you read your own biography? Super isn't it? The complete job cycle of the average employee in the Indian corporate explained so well, beautifully. And, what should you do to be the best average employee? After all that is what we are aspiring to be!The never ending power point factory, the middle management, the corporate's technical and non-technical jargon presented in an exuberant manner! Go, get it, and you will certainly be free from stress for the time you read this book!

With his witty sense of writing that needs to be taken with a pinch of salt and a lot of laughing, he slowly takes on every aspect of job and brings out the secrets. Right from the newbies, interns, assistants to the corporate life crisis and senior level management – you have all the experiences in here!

20 chapters made into 6 sections takes us through the life of the corporate structure in different facets. Like entering an office and climbing the stairs, watching at every cubicle and gathering stories – the book bluntly takes out each situation and puts it right onto your face. From taking a hearty take on how to behave in an office party, fitting into the work life, relationship management and more, he has nailed in bringing forth a laughing tale of an average employee who dreams of making it big in the corporate world.

But one thing that book definitely teaches is – Not to be an Average!

Right from the word go, the author has you hooked. His uncanny way of describing the inner workings of any company - be it a start-up or an MNC - is simply hilarious to the tee. He describes, sarcastically, of course, the ‘better’ way of doing things - does not matter if you are a fresher or a part of middle-management. Rishi does justice in the description of the work atmosphere in various types of organisations, even Public Sector Units. In a rib-tickling manner, he highlights the inner workings and well-known but taken-for-granted details in the job way of life.
When reading this book, you cannot help but sit back and reflect on how you must have acted in those typical situations in any job.
