Promotional Information

Brand new translation for the paperback edition. 'Maier convinces us that not only can you be a slacker and get away with it, but that only by reducing your productivity to zero have you any hope of climbing the corporate ladder' The Times. BONJOUR LAZINESS was a No.1 bestseller in Europe - it has sold over 270,000 copies in France alone. Huge media attention on publication. For readers who enjoyed IN PRAISE OF SLOW and HOW TO BE IDLE - both Sunday Times bestsellers. Published in 21 countries and languages. 'Intelligent and hugely entertaining' The Times. 'An elegantly written call to arms to the neo-slaves of middle management' Guardian. 'Maier's observations generate one universal reaction among readers: "Ohmigod, that's just like my company!" ' Financial Times 'This is an insightful, funny book for those who work only because they need the money' GQ

About the Author

Corinne Maier is an economist and author who has worked for years at Electricite de France (EdF). Shortly after the publication of this book in France, Maier was due to be disciplined by her employers for disloyalty to the company and for reading a newspaper during a meeting. However, they have since abandoned disciplinary action. For the moment, Maier continues to work part-time at EdF and to follow her own recipe of how to work as little as possible.


'a warm salut for Maier's droll diatribe on the idocies of office life - a comic hit...Her witty proof that "There is no va-va-voom in business" calls on not just Foucault but Dilbert to make a sassy slacker's manual' INDEPENDENT 'according to Corinne Maier's hilarious hommage to the lazy git, sometimes it actually pays to be on the horizontal side of idle' DAILY RECORD 'This slim book is aimed specifically at French corporate culture but its observations are sufficiently universal to warrant a translation' -- Toby Clements DAILY TELEGRAPH
