What Others are Saying:
- A hilarious and brilliant description of how scientific management attempted but failed to stifle the creativity of the average worker. Whatever new time studies and work rules were instituted the workforce went about finding ways around them. What a waste of human potential was the assembly line.
- An inside look at daily live at an auto assembly line in the 1970s and 80s and the frustrations and coping mechanisms workers use to get through the day; some very frank discussion of alcohol and drug use -- not necessarily a pretty picture, but a very honest one.
