I found this book a thoroughly entertaining read and couldn t put the book down It had me laughing throughout The author skilfully captures the desired responses for ethnic minorities trying to make it in the corporate world It s a very brave account of the structural cultural barriers faced but told in a satirical way that allows you to find the humorous side to a very serious problem Hats off to the author Nels Abbey for sharing the very relatable workplace issue of racial discrimination with the masses. This book is a hilarious satirical self help tome on how to get ahead in the corporate world while black It satirises the system which promotes mediocre white men above anyone else It makes serious points but the humour is undeniable The written word rarely makes me laugh out loud but this book did many times It s worth noting the book does not sugar coat anything far from it but it uses the device of humour to illuminate a serious subject It is also like a Russian doll of interesting facts and nuggets from history I learnt a lot I can t think of another similar book I recommend it wholeheartedly.
