You should read this book if:
Do you start to dislike your job?
Or, is your job, also your hobby but something is off?
Did you start to desire more time for yourself?
Are you sick of bad management and ass kissing?
Do you want to be your own boss, to start your own business?
At some point in life (usually after a specific age) you start to change your way of thinking about your career, life, family etc. You start to desire more time for yourself realizing that you dedicate to much time working for someone else, while you could dedicate more time to yourself, to have a better work/life balance. But you do nothing about it. Why?
This book, in a humoristic way, tries to help you decide if those type of thoughts is good or wrong and what you should do about. More exactly, how you should address the matter, how you should think about work and life balance. This is what LAME is about. LAME is a methodology, a way of thinking, with a single purpose: to help you understand if your "new" desires about your job, your hobbies, your personal life, etc. are the right path.
The title of the book "HOW TO BE A SUCCESSFUL SLAVE" tries to give you an idea about the fact that this book is a satire and need to be treated as is. However, you can change its sense by reading it between lines - for example: if you will agree with the book content that there is a very big problem with the balance between work and free time, then do exactly opposite to solve the problem.
This book refers only to work habits and work environment.
