'Barry has packed these pages with hilarious, if acid-etched, vingettes of corporate characters you may find all too familiar.'
Anne Fisher, Business Life
'Australian Max Barry doesn't so much publish biting satires as release them with fuses lit in much the way certain-aged boys gleefully disrupt school plumbing with firecrackers.'
Henry Goldblatt, Entertainment Weekly
'With the release of Company ... Australian novelist Max Barry establishes himself as fiction's most insightful and devilish satirist of corporate culture.'

The New York Times

‘Makes topics like outsourcing, mission statements and H.R. come alive, breathe fire and vomit all over your in-basket ... smart and fast paced.’
Douglas Coupland, The New York Times Book Review
'Fiefdoms are divided among cubicles, sales staff wreak vengeance upon coworkers for taking extra donuts, a new employee's hiring is hidden in the office supply budget. In other words, it's only slightly more ridiculous than any office you've ever worked in.'
