Daniel de Filippisabout this book: The Company That Everyone Left is a contemporary, perhaps timeless, story of one young man's adventures in the mysterious realms of the corporate world. Surreal and bitterly amusing the book was inspired by the many stories one hears over years of company life, the absurdities of which should resonate well with anyone who has attempted to climb the corporate ladder.
Rich in references to pop culture, The Company That Everyone Left has a full cast of characters known only by their titles - Small Boss, Big Boss, Exalted Marketing Director, and the Zombie Squad are only some of the denizens that New Guy will have to face within the Company's tower of terror. Incidentally, the book also offers a solution to preventing the impending Zombie Apocalypse.
The author hopes that this over-the-top fictional - it clearly isn't factual - account of the inner workings of a Company will both provide readers with a good chuckle and a moment of reflection on the absurdities that professional life often reserves us humans.
Special thanks to Emanuele Ercolani for the wonderful illustration used as the book's cover.
