Maria Wilson & Jack De Duran about this book: We wrote this book to poke fun at the extreme zealousness associated with being promoted. The office environment was chosen because it is the one we are the most familiar with, and within this environment we have witnessed and/or heard about inappropriate tactics and antics devised by workers to get ahead. Sometimes, the strategies would leave us shaking our heads especially when it was clear that the person given the promotion won it for all the wrong reasons.
It took us about a year to write and organise a friend to put the quirky illustrations together for us. The intention of the book is for readers to recognise at least of the strategies, and laugh at the extreme ones we have created. Today there is too much emphasis on putting yourself first and our plan is to send up this self absorption through the character of the Self Helper, whose only goal is to be successful, regardless of the consequences for the other workers..
