Book Review:Alice in Corporateland by Joan Wendland

Alice in Corporateland is a witty twist on Lewis Carroll’s original version. This book is for the yuppies and the up and coming corporate divas.

Forty-something Alice is about to enter a corporate fairytale like no other. As she prepares to leave for the first job interview she has had in twenty years, a large rabbit dressed in a pin-striped suit peers through her window. The rabbit, who boasts of double PhD degrees in mismanagement and sexual misconduct, is just one of the zany characters who will soon accompany her on her wild ride through Corporateland—an unforgettable place inundated with paper and absurd animals who talk in enigmatic riddles.

After Alice manages to escape a paper pit, she encounters an egomaniac dodo bird, a reptilian paper pusher, and a roomful of overeager young executive giraffes. But even the Human Resources Cat, who advises Alice to keep walking, cannot help her escape the wrath of the Duchess of Downsteepysizing. After Alice finds herself in the midst of the bizarre downsizing games, she soon discovers that being logical and reasonable will lead her straight to nowhere.


This book has given me a funny and biting glimpse of the Corporateland. I’m sure anywhere you go the issues and the satirical points are the same. I would even suggest that this be a must read for newly hired employee! Get a load of the different personality types that you see on an office setting that were encountered by Alice on her trip to the Corporateland.  You might even be surprised that you can actually identify them.
