  • review: I found a copy of this book lying around in the labs where I was teaching. Curious enough, I flipped through some pages to know what the fuss is all about. The impression was that this was something interesting, so I ended up reading the book to know more. I thinl I'm not the target audience for this book. It postulates that there are some jobs that are bullshit or useless. While the argument does make sense, I think it lacks a rigid social analysis and methodological analysis. Because an important consideration is the people doing the job - which could be saving time, effort, and so on. So are the jobs bullshit or is the job culture bullshit? The book nevers gets into it.,
