Nobody told Iain Levison that his $40,000 English degree wouldn't land him a great job and might, in fact, might keep him from getting a job at all. So, fresh out of college, Levison works whatever job he can get.

A Working Stiff's Manifesto is a laugh-out-loud memoir of one man's struggle to pay the rent. From a fish-cutterís job (at which the manager was more concerned about whether or not his shirt was an oxford than whether or not he had any fish-cutting experience) to horrifying stints in Alaska as a crab boat helper and a fish processor to dozens of other mundane, futureless jobs, Levisonís experiences make this book a must-read for anyone who knows what it's like to be on the bottom and stay there.

From enthusiastic water filter salespeople to cable wire installers and restaurant management recruiting teams, Levison exposes corporate snow jobs like nothing I've ever read before.

  
 
The only problem with this book is that it's too short. It's only 164 pages long, and I didn't want it to end. The book is so funny that there are places that actually made me cry.

If you like to read memoirs, if you know what it's like to move furniture for a paycheck, or if you just want a good laugh, I highly recommend this Working Stiff's Manifesto. Just make sure thereís somebody nearby to whom you can read parts out loudóbecause many of Levisonís stories are too good to read quietly.
