Cyril Northcote Parkinson’s brilliant and humorous book brings to light the absurdity of every day working life. Working from the premise that ‘work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion’ Parkinson explores the realities of human behaviour within the organization. He doesn’t theorise, but instead writes about how people truly function at work. Clever, funny and revealing, Parkinson’s Law is as relevant now as it was in 1958 when it was originally released. Here, Leo Gough’s interpretation of Parkinson’s Law illustrates the timeless nature of Parkinson’s insights by bringing them to life through modern case studies. This brilliant interpretation is an entertaining accompaniment to one of the most famous books ever written.
