I decided I was going to read a book a week for a year, here’s a quick review of this week’s book. You can see the ongoing list here.
Overqualified by Joey Comeau
Why I read it
It was recommended by a friend whose literally chops I trust; she made the suggestion via this comment on a previous MBR.
How it connects to the Public Sector
I’m not sure it does explicitly, but damn I this book hit the spot.
What I got out of reading it
The book slowly reveals the history of its protagonist through a series of increasingly absurd cover letters. Having never read a work of fiction for a MBR I found reading Overqualified as part of the series a much needed reprieve from the world of business books.
I can’t tell you much more about it other than I read it in a single day, spread over 3 separate sittings; and when I wasn’t reading the book, I was looking forward to the next time I was going to.
Thanks for the recommendation Chelsea, I’m passing it along to everyone here.
