The Art of Asking Your Boss for a Raise by Georges PerecA long-suffering employee in a big corporation has summoned up the courage to ask for a raise. But as he runs through the looming encounter in his mind, his neuroses come to the surface: What is the best day to see the boss? What if he doesn’t offer you a seat when you go into his office?
The Art of Asking Your Boss for a Raise is a hilarious account of an employee losing his identity—and possibly his sanity—as he tries to put on the most acceptable face for the corporate world,with its rigid hierarchies and hostility to new ideas. If he follows a certain course of action, so this logic goes, he will succeed—but, in accepting these conditions, are his attempts to challenge his world of work doomed from the outset?
Neurotic and pessimistic, yet endearing, comic and never less than entertaining, Perec’s Woody Allen-esque underling presents an acute and penetrating vision of the world of office work, as pertinent today as it was when it was written in 1968.
3 Do’s and 3 Do Not’s of Requesting Book Reviews
Self Publishing Team. Hi there! Duolit is on hiatus, but please feel free to explore our extensive archive of posts and our free Weekend Book Marketing Makeover. Thanks for visiting! Can you imagine these gems on the back cover of your book? Instead, we are forced to look elsewhere, to popular bloggers and news outlets whose opinions have value outside our household in order to let our potential readers know that we are every bit as good as we say we are. But how do we get those reviews?
Hi guys, Merry Christmas Eve! Please forgive me. This is another post dedicated to the newbies. I would love to hear how others request books across the globe, so let me know! Pretty please? So why are meeting these requirements important?
So, your book is finished and you need to get the word out. Start with the subject. Address the reviewer by name. No one likes to get an impersonal form letter. Keep it a little more formal at first — you can always be more informal after the first email if it seems appropriate.
