Corporate Ties by Ben Woods

All Reviews for "Corporate Ties"

This story is something that has happened to a lot of people in corporate America, especially with the Recession. Corporate restructuring happens. And this is exactly what happens to Jason and the rest of the people at Mettle when they're told they have to move to be with the new parent company. 

I really like Woods' style of writing. It's fast paced, funny, with a splash of cynicism (just how I like it) and kept me interested in the story. The writing is most definitely the highlight of this book. The humor is subtle, which I liked.

This is a workplace comedy, workplace being the operative word. Some of the business talk may be above and beyond what some people like. I used to work in IT so I was okay with it but other people who aren't so familiar with that world, you may be a little bit lost. This may limit the audience for this book. Throughout the book, I kind of felt like I was waiting for something big to happen and when the turning point in the book finally comes, it was a bit more subdued than I was expecting.

Bottom line: Read this one for the writing!

I got a chance to get into the first few chapters last night, had me laughing out loud.

I found Corporate Ties to be an entertaining read. Ben Woods has a great writing style, and I always appreciate a dose of subtle cynicism in anything I read. I am, after all, a bit of a cynic myself (some days more than others) ...

The book was a humorous take on the corporate world, the stress, the relocation, the robot-type of requirement to fit it. Almost anyone in the corporate world could easily relate to parts, if not all, of this book ...
