: New: Book Report: Orbiting the Giant Hairball

In theory, this is a book of anecdotes about a creative person surviving/thriving in the bureaucracy of the Hallmark company. Mostly it seemed like anecdotes from someone overly anxious about authority. In this book's stories, our hero does what he wants with little interference, but worries that he'll be stopped because he's somehow being too creative. In theory, this book is supposed to show me how I can be creative in a corporate setting. Mostly it made me cringe and sympathize with the author's managers, dealing with this guy who doesn't ask for anything until after he's been working himself into a lather over it gahhhh… Oho, now I'm wondering: Did any of his managers write a book? I'd read that.
