The pay was generous the work easy, and his colleagues decent at the Advanced Systems Development Division of IBM, Americas technocratic giant. So why did Heywood Gould leave? And why do so many of the countrys brightest and most creative young people reject corporate enticements? Was the corporation freak really an undercover provocateur working from within to undermine the system, or was he genuinely interested in the subtle distinctions of office size and executive comportment? When the comfortable crew cut ensconced within IBMs maternal walls confronts the hairy individualist-hustler at the water cooler, on coffee breaks, at top- level closed circuit TV meetings, and around the sexy secretarys desk, verbal bombs explode into one of the zaniest and most enjoyable reading experiences of today.
