You work with them. Come take a madcap meeting with them anyway and see how and why they leave common sense behind as the new hospital administrator William Petty changes everything. He adjusts associated staffing levels (fires people) and increases workloads (sometimes for the fired people). He even limits Father Chuck to added-value duties. In response, the employees begin to form bad habits and a union. However, no one handles the changes worse than Bigger, a kitchen worker with a belief that he is affected by invisibility rays. The worst thing he could ever imagine happens-his boss offers him a promotion. All he has to do is betray his coworkers and help keep people from voting for the union. He seeks out advice from his motley crew of friends: Dykes who tells every woman he sleeps with that he is lonely; Dan the audio/visual geek who organizes the union just to piss his wife off; and even Father Chuck who is so stunned that he must now bill patients for his prayers that he spends his days bitterly smoking in the designated area for oral nicotine worship, "The Butt Hutt." The only person to give him good advice is his friend Joe who teaches him the Tao of Apathy. It's a powerful tool, but will Bigger choose to use it?

    Olivia "So many books--so little time.""

    Brilliantly-humorous, highly-entertaining story of the Saint Jude hospital in Lansing, Michigan, where the workers are trying to unionize. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Copy obtained via a Goodreads giveaway.

    I loved this book! It was a satire about the inner workings of a hospital and the interactions between the lower and upper class employees. It reminded me off a mix between the show "Scrubs", the movie "Office Space", and the novel "A Confederacy of Dunces". The writing was smart, witty, and subtle. Often, I would have to retread the sentence to get the joke. Very funny. I would recommend this book to others. I received this book for free on Goodreads Giveaways. Thank you!

    I received this book as part of a Goodreads First Reads giveaway. Not only are some of the characters in this book familiar, I think I've worked with them. This book about a dysfunctional hospital staff was an entertaining read to say the least. I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. For me, it was like The Office meets Scrubs. The story was well written and some of the characters were easy to relate to while others reminded you of people you worked for.

There is no real way to categorize this story as it's so much rolled into one. I would definitely recommend it regardless of what your usual reading genre is. Thank you for the opportunity to read this book.
