About the Book

In this new book, ‘A Bull in a Glass House,’ author Jose Astorga draws from a deep well of sharp observations, witty insight, and common sense to pass on his passion, experience, and truths learned in corporate hell. It’s one ex-Marine’s battle for sanity in the workplace and it reveals compelling truths, one of which includes: Life is too short to spend every day working in misery. Are Sunday evenings your personal threshold to hell? If so, read on. When Jose Astorga left the Marines for a steady stint in corporate America, he had no idea what he was in for. Management that valued the dollar and personal perks more than their own employees. Life-sucking corporate bureaucracy. And mindless projects that wasted time, effort, and money. Is it even possible to prepare for this? Now, it actually might be. Astorga’s clever manifesto is a study on the human condition: Embrace change, value those you work with, and the three basic human needs - security, belonging, and respect - will be satisfied. Focusing on the executive versus employee chasm he lurked in during his 20-year-long career, Astorga’s message is clear: Success originates not on an academic certificate, but from discipline, tenacity, loyalty, and adaptability. Written for those with little tolerance for waste, stupidity, shameless groveling, and inefficiency, A Bull in a Glass House is the ultimate manifesto for navigating the human, corporate condition.
