These seems to be far too much emphasis on the 'PC' flooded tripe that is constantly rammed down our throats, and this book will be frowned upon by the brainwashed, as the staff are referred to as 'servants', also there is an emphasis on 'HE' as the main desision maker in society which they will find sexist. But WHO CARES!!! Lighten up and enjoy it.
