Lightning Rods

Lightning Rods - Helen DeWitt, David L. Flusfeder OMG. Providing sex during office hours to act as 'Lightning rods' to draw all that excess energy away and reduce/prevent sexual harassment?
An absolutely brutal/screwball satire that skewers all the current pop psychology of modern management/sales technique.
The writer cast a totally unsympathetic eye of the follies of following current management practices and how we justify our action or the lackthereof. An uncomfortable read with many stings along the way, like really bad ribbing during a company Christmas party that never ends.
