About the Book

Patrick Lencioni takes on a topic that almost everyone can relate to: the causes of a miserable job.  Millions of workers, even those who have carefully chosen careers based on true passions and interests, dread going to work.  Any job, from investment banker to dishwasher, can become miserable.  Scores of people suffer each day as they trudge to jobs that make them cynical, weary, and frustrated.  Through the story of a CEO turned pizzeria manager, Lencioni reveals that job satisfaction is not about choosing the right job or career. Buy Three Signs Of A Miserable Job Book (A Fable for Managers & their Employees) and get to know more.
