In this new book, "A Bull in a Glass House," author Jose Astorga draws from a deep well of sharp observations, witty insight, and common sense to pass on his passion, experience, and truths learned in corporate hell. It's one ex-Marine's battle for sanity in the workplace and it reveals compelling truths, one of which includes: Life is too short to spend every day working in misery. Are Sunday evenings your personal threshold to hell? If so, read on. When Jose Astorga left the Marines for a steady stint in corporate America, he had no idea what he was in for. Management that valued the dollar and personal perks more than their own employees, life-sucking corporate bureaucracy, and mindless projects that wasted time, effort, and money. Is it even possible to prepare for this? Now, it actually might be. Astorga's clever manifesto is a study on the human condition: Embrace change, value those you work with, and the three basic human needs — security, belonging, and respect — will be satisfied. Focusing on the executive versus employee chasm he lurked in during his 20-year-long career, Astorga's message is clear: Success originates not on an academic certificate, but from discipline, tenacity, loyalty, and adaptability. Written for those with little tolerance for waste, stupidity, shameless groveling, and inefficiency, "A Bull in a Glass House" is the ultimate manifesto for navigating the human, corporate condition.

About José Astorga: In 1986, after three years in the Marines and a short stint as an armed guard, this former Marine secured a job in a growing company. He came armed with only a high school education and no skills, other than being an expert marksman in the Marines. His last 10 years in management provided an in-your-face, practical view of the paradox between corporate level expectations and behavior. "A Bull in a Glass House" is the first in a series of books that will benefit the earnest reader.
