Edgar Senior’s (1993) long-threatened novel “The Office Buddha” is now available in both print and ebook formats. It is for a very deserving mental health charity called BasicNeeds, who you can read about here: http://www.basicneeds.org/
Edgar interviewed dozens of people from many different industries to discover what they hated the most about their jobs, and this is the result: a story of dysfunctional companies, office politics and career frustrations – and how a little philosophy can make even the worst of jobs a little more bearable.
Lucy Kellaway of The Financial Times called it “Funny, sharp and scarily true” and Oliver James, the author of Affluenza and Office Politics, said “The more people who apply philosophy like The Office Buddha’s to their careers, the fewer unhappy professionals there will be.”
