Tough Choices

by Carly Fiorina

In this autobiographical work, the former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard writes about her feelings, triumphs, failures, fears and confrontations during her high-profile stint as head of the multinational computer company in an industry dominated by men - including her abrupt and public firing following the firm's merger with Compaq. She also writes about her earlier years as a law school dropout who did not consider a business career until her mid-20s, but once in, blazed a trail through big jobs at AT&T and Lucent Technologies with a growing reputation as a hard-working visionary leader.

101 Ways to Kill Your Boss

by Graham Roumieu

Canadian illustrator Graham Roumieu, better known for his humorous takes on Bigfoot, takes a stab at the office in this hardback which promises to be a gleeful exploration of those darker moments we all rather would not have, but do anyway.

Anyone who has ever worked would have had a moment when all they wanted was to do that which is suggested by the self-explanatory title of this book. It is a (fictional) chance to let go of those moments of rage and frustration through laughter.
