Counterproductive Man by Jeff Inlo (Many formats, DRM Free)

Counterproductive Man is a fictional humor eBook available at Smashwords and Amazon.com DRM-free.

If you want to sample the first three chapters for free, you can download them in several different formats (epub, mobi, lit, html, txt, prc, pdf, pdb) at:

www.sitelane.com

Book Summary:
He works for the United States Federal Government to ensure a slower pace of progress. He believes in doing things the hard way, even the wrong way, but especially the inefficient way. To him, waste is just another way to utilize resources, and incompetence is a prized characteristic of human nature. He is… Counterproductive Man!

As a fully licensed agent of the government, it is his sworn duty to protect the interests of the United States by thwarting ingenuity and productivity. Utilizing his own methods of obstruction, he has accepted the role of a hero with enhanced capabilities. He can leap tall buildings with the aid of a magnetic jump pack, and he can break glass with his sonic disruptor pen. With every department of the United States Government at his disposal, he can bring swift retribution against those that oppose him.

Even though he does not work in secret, little is known about this masked crusader. For many inventors, he is simply the personification of oppressive bureaucracy. Technological advancement in product or process is Counterproductive Man’s enemy, and while he is not the brightest star in the Milky Way, he might be the most annoying.

In this story, the origins of his inefficient and combative partner unfold, as do the initial conflicts with his archenemy. Counterproductive Man learns to work with others, something he does not do well, and he feels the stinging pain of defeat. Still, this is a hero that embodies the domineering perseverance of any government agency bent on having its way. He will fight his adversary to the end in order to defeat unbridled progress and to remain true to his name… Counterproductive!

As always, thank you for your interest in my work,

Jeff Inlo

The price for Counterproductive Man is now $.99 at Amazon and Smashwords.

I also created a coupon that I wanted to try out for Smashwords that should allow you to download it for free through the end of August.

The Smashwords coupon code is YU99R and expires Aug 31.

Please let me know if there are any problems with the coupon.

You can find the book at:

Smashwords

Amazon

Thanks

I have indeed been spying on your boss. Unfortunately, your boss has also been cloned... multiple times... and these clones have taken management positions all over the world.

Thanks for letting me know the coupon worked and thanks for purchasing it as well. You deserve a better boss.
