    This was an uncomfortable read in some ways, as it points out the failings in both human nature and the system. The system sometimes fails us all at some point in our lives and the reason the system does fail us in my experience, is because its run by humans. You see, human beings aren’t perfect, we all have failings and sometimes a lack of empathy can be the biggest failing of modern man. The people characterised in this book are not bad people by any stretch of the imagination, they are simply human and with all those failings we all have. They work in a field that is driven by money, modern man’s biggest vice and source of greed, yet they are supposed to be filled with an overflowing empathy for those they come into contact with in their daily lives. Who is at fault? the system? or the greed that fuels everyone? is it our capitalist society that rewards sociopathy more often than not with great reward? who knows! I can’t solve the problems of the world, nor do I understand them... More > all, but I understand why the author wrote this book and I felt his pain through a lot of the words. It does pose some questions that had me thinking … is it better to lie to someone to avoid their pain and fear? is it better to tell someone the truth even if you know it will devastate them? In some occupations, professionals have to deal with this problem every day of their lives. I don’t envy them, always having been a forthright and basically honest person myself. But no, I wouldn’t tell her she looks rubbish in that dress if it would hurt her, I’d just suggest that she maybe tries the black one? I wouldn’t like to have to tell someone they are going to die, who would? Maybe I would avoid it? maybe if I worked in certain occupations I’d become so immune to the hurt of others, as some do, that I would just blurt it out and get on to the next one. Who knows? I’ve never had that calling … I do think this book will anger certain people, but try to remember this is just one persons take on it all, the author’s - its hard for him to see I think that those who go to work have their own lives and problems and even if they do reap what they sow, its no one’s place to gloat about it. Is revenge a dish best eaten cold? I’ll let you decide when you read it. Do know that it has a dark undercurrent but it masquerades as fluffy. Do we reap what we sow? - I think we all do eventually, I call it Karma, I think the author calls it justice. (review from amazon.co.uk )< Less
