Book cover

In New Hire, author Dave Dryfoos presents a thought-provoking and gripping tale that delves into the fundamental aspects of human behavior and the dynamics of corporate culture. Set in a fictional tech company, the book follows the journey of the protagonist, John, as he navigates the daunting challenge of starting a new job.

Dryfoos masterfully captures the anxieties and uncertainties that come with being a "new hire" in a hyper-competitive environment. Through John's perspective, readers are introduced to a multitude of characters, each with their unique motivations and agendas. This allows for a fascinating exploration of power dynamics, office politics, and the pursuit of success within a cutthroat industry.

One of the book's greatest strengths lies in its ability to create a sense of realism.

But there's no turning off one's kids, and thus, on the most important morning of his life, February 30, 2054, Bozzy arose, much against his will, promptly at 0800.
