This is an interesting book.  It’s written from the perspective of a human resources director that must deal with the zombie apocalypse.

It gives advice on how to handle an  employee that has become a zombie and what paperwork the supervisor is required to complete.

It explains how business can remain profitable during the zombie apocalypse by changing its business model and developing innovative weapons for the living consumers.  There is also a section on how to get money from zombies, without risking self injury.

I enjoyed reading this book and found it to be humorous.

My Secret Life on the McJob – A Book Review

my_secret_life_on_the_mcjob_book

Jerry Newman is a university professor.  He took a sabbatical from his job to work in the fast food industry, as part of a human resources research project.  His findings and insights are recorded in his book, My Secret Life on the McJob.

Jerry Newman was able to capture the personal side of his co-workers life, as it relate to working in fast food.  He also spoke highly of the skills that each employee learned as a result of their job:

  • Interpersonal Skills
  • Time Management
  • Working Under Pressure
  • Leadership Skills
  • Customer Service

The book also covered the negative aspects of being in the fast food industry.  Employees often felt marginalized by society and are often treated poorly by customers, because their jobs are seen as unimportant.

I think this book is worth reading and I really enjoyed it.

I give it an A-
