"Sometimes you find a book which you simply can't not read. The Year Without Pants was one of them." (The BookBag, October 2013) Those looking for observations about the changing nature of the workplace won't be disappointed, but equally this is far from being just a passionless futurist text; Berkun infuses the whole book with real humour and gives an excellent personal account of the inner working of one of the world's most unorthodox enterprises." (Elite Business, November 2013) "Well worth a look" (Mob 76 Outlook, November 2013) "...the book is gripping." (Loyalty Magazine, January 2014) "...the fact that this book has a genuine story and a timeframe makes for a good pace and a good read." (B2B Marketing, April 2014) "...there are lots of lessons about how to make good decisions and get along with others in the workplace." (Able Magazine, June 2014) "...offers sage advice for managers looking to overhaul their corporate culture." (Communication Director, June 2014) "'s without a doubt, one of my favourite, most useful and enjoyable reads of all time." (What Goes Around, July 2014)
