I bought this book for an annoying colleague at work who is a jobsworth, never got round to giving it to her, but kept it instead, a good laugh and many home truths!

I agree with other reviewer it's not a great read. Many of the anecdotes I had heard over the years, disappointing.

Format: Paperback
Picking up this book in the bookshop, I assumed it would be a selection of amusing red tape anecdotes. After all, part of the title is "Tales of Red Tape and Jobsworths".

However it isn't. The author has essentially written a short history about red tape, and whilst that may be of interest, it does not do what it says on the tin! There are of course some tales, but they are all too infrequent, and I found myself skimming some passages to get to the good bits.
