"A must-read for those who want to survive and succeed in the rat-race . . ."
"Beacons of truth so harsh and glaring they can hurt. . ."
". . . not another one of those warm and fuzzy self-help books . . ."
Lights, Cubicle, Action! by A. A. Cantor is the epitome of the ageless proverb, “don’t judge a book by its cover.” With the dimensions of a joke book and the “Dilbert-type” cartoon-drawn cover, the reader expects light-hearted poke-in-the-ribs “100+ Directives for Survival in Corporate America” with some belly-laughter punch lines. However, after an initial smile or chuckle, the reader soon realizes the messages the author relays aren’t really that funny. They are, instead, beacons of truth that are so harsh and glaring they can hurt.|
Thank heavens, this book isn’t another one of those warm and fuzzy self-help books that promise success for all who work hard and keep an upbeat attitude. For those who’ve been there, it’s obvious that A. A. Cantor spent time in corporate land and lived to tell it like it really is. The reader might have to read a page a second or third time to fully comprehend the obscure wisdom as some passages seem simple but are actually quite complex in their sentence structure and context. Whether employed in the corporate world or aspiring to be, this book is a must-read for those who want to survive and succeed in the rat-race we call life.
