Bonjour laziness : jumping off the corporate ladder by Corinne Maier( Book )

No kids : 40 good reasons not to have children by Corinne Maier( Book )
18 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The shocking treatise that was a bestselling international media sensation upon its 2007 publication in France now makes its eagerly anticipated English-language debut. A mother of two herself, Maier makes her deadly serious, if at times laugh-out-loud-funny, argument with all the unbridled force of her famously wicked intellect. In forty to-the-point, impressively erudite chapters drawing on the realms of history, child psychology, politics, and the environment, Maier effortlessly skewers the idealized notion of parenthood as a natural and beautiful endeavour. Enough with this "baby-mania" that is plaguing modern society, says Maier, it's nothing but brainwashing. Are you prepared to give up your free time, dinners with friends, spontaneous romantic getaways, and even the luxury of uninterrupted thought for the "vicious little dwarves" that will treat you like their servant, cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars, and end up resenting you' Speaking to the still "child-free", to fellow suffering parents, and to adamant procreationists alike, No Kids is a controversial, thought-provoking, and undeniably entertaining read. Reasons to avoid having kids: -You will lose touch with your friends -Your sex life will be over -Children cost a fortune -Child-rearing is endless drudgery -Vacations will be nightmares -You'll lose your identity and become just "mom" or "dad" -Your children will become mindless drones of capitalism -The planet's already overcrowded -Your children will inevitably disappoint you From the Trade Paperback edition

"Of the great political philosophers, few have had as profound and enduring an impact as Karl Marx. In this graphic biography by the creative super-team that brought us Freud, Maier and Simon provide a beautifully witty introduction to the works, actions and philosophy of this great polymathic thinker, a man whose canon of work remains just as relevant today"--Provided by publisher

Your company wants you to be loyal. You should feel lucky'after all, your job is a privilege (think of all those who would like to have it). And you know (despite what you've read about Enron and WorldCom) that management has your best interests at heart. Your goal is to devote yourself to the pursuit of corporate profit, make your company number one, and reap the benefits of its success.Or is there something else you want to do with your life'Bonjour Laziness dares to ask whether you really have a stake in the corporate sweepstakes, whether professional mobility is anything but an opiate.
