Your company wants you to be loyal. You should feel lucky-after all, your job is a privilege (think of all those who would like to have it). And you know (despite what you've read about Enron and WorldCom) that management has your best interests at heart. Your goal is to devote yourself to the pursuit of corporate profit, make your company number one, and reap the benefits of its success. Or is there something else you want to do with your life? Hello Laziness dares to ask whether you really have a stake in the corporate sweepstakes and whether professional mobility is anything more than an opiate, and it proposes steps you can take to regain control over what you want to do. It shows you how to become impervious to manipulation and escape the implacable law of usefulness - in short, it explains why it is in your best interests to work as little as possible.
