From Margaret Mezzacapo
Author: Ronald D. Brown
Dying on the job : murder and mayhem in the American workplace
This is the worst book ever. The premise is interesting, but this book makes watching paint dry and grass grow seem scintillating. It’s written in the style of a sociology term paper, complete with footnotes every other word. The author also has the strange habit of repeating anecdotes. You’ll read one account and two pages later it’s repeated, sometimes almost word for word, and they weren’t always that great the first time.
I do not recommend this book, unless you’re the kind who thinks, “ It’s got to get better” as you read along. Trust me – it doesn’t.
