Has anyone here read this book?
I'm reading it at the moment and I have to say if half of it is true then all I can say is what's going on is even more weird than I thought.

Bigfella, have a read. You seem to have access to information and resources you can use to cross check some of the claims.
I for one would be more than interested in the veracity of his claims.

Plenty of folks out there don't want anyone to question or threten the status quo. I suffered at the end of a sword (figuratively speaking) for having done so myself. I managed to get fired for increasing my group's profitability by almost 50% in a year - because it made others in the company look bad. I made over 50% of the company's profits with 1% of the staff. Life's like that at times.

No reason to doubt that. It happens all the time

Being too efficient in a large corporation is a form of suicide.

Norman - that was my take from looking at the website - which I found rather poor - but not expressed as such as I haven't read the book.
