All About Days of Our Work Lives

"Days of Our Work Lives" is a single story written from two different perspectives. Designed as a flip book, it provides the reader with one angle written from the manager's view, while the other angle is written through the eyes of his employee.

Our main characters, Jack (employee) and Mark (manager), arrive at work expecting a typical day, only to discover that their office has inexplicably transformed into a set of a typical soap opera. Jack is now the star of the soap, navigating his new world while trying to find his true role. Mark is thrust into the role of the soap's director, delicately balancing the needs of his team with the pressures coming down from the network bosses.

Read the Forewords, written by some of Hollywood's finest talent!

What Our Readers Say . . .

Perfect in every way! It hits the nail on the head, describing how a typical work place can really be akin to that of a soap opera. Very creative storytelling.


The flip book format is a great way to demonstrate different sides of everyday corporate American life -- with a manager thinking one way and the employee thinking another.


It is a very fun read. The authors have done a fabulous job of capturing the problems we all encounter on the job, with a soap opera as the back drop!
