  A MUST for the thinking person

Consider a couple of the laws from Parkinson to get a flavor of his wit: Work expands so as to fill the time available. The Law of Extravagance reads, Expenditure rises to meet income - and tends to surpass it. You will find such gems here as, The quantity of work activity in no way indicates its usefulness. The author's insights on the subjects of taxation, government and organizations are fascinating. What do Chinese tin miners of centuries ago have to do with modern tax levels? Read his chapter on Finance to find out. Did you know that England's ministries did not use double-entry accounting even as late as 1957? Read the chapter on Limits on Taxation to find out why! Read why the final selection of a job candidate is often made by a secretary outside the boss's office - if you are deluded by any lingering belief that hiring follows rules and is scientific! Read about it in the chapter on Careers. You knew the news on business and government was bad: it gets far worse - and much funnier - in Parkinson's incisive chapters. It will be impossible to view life with the same seriousness after you have read The Law, Complete.
