For Corporate Rebels Only: Why Tomorrow's Leaders are Quiet Quitting Today by Dale E. Funk provides insights into the benefits that quiet-quitting can have for individuals. Backed by thorough research and well-thought-out and presented arguments, he makes his case for quiet-quitting and how corporate greed is the primary driver behind it, which has led to the exploitation of hardworking citizens. Many, especially corporate leaders, may construe Funk's blunt honesty as controversial, but it's mostly an awakening to the reality that corporate workers face daily. Aiming for fulfillment is impossible in a corporate job, and the only way to find purpose is to follow one's passions, even if that means quitting quietly while pursuing other, more independent sources of income that will lead to true happiness.

For Corporate Rebels Only by Dale E. Funk provides an alternative to working in the corporate world by advocating entrepreneurship or quiet-quitting while you pursue your personal purpose-driven goals. One of my favorite quotes from the book is: "Let yourself be the beneficiary of that extraordinary performance." Funk encourages people to use their hard work to create the kind of life they want instead of enabling the greed of corporations. This is a bold, candid, and compelling motivational book that is concise and well-written. It captures one's imagination as you ponder the possibilities of a future in which you attain your vision, applying ethical and moral standards that appear to be missing in many corporations. Funk's tone is confident as he details his views with conviction while backing them with sound facts. I found this book to be truly inspirational.

Large corporations have come under fire over the years for over-exploitation of employees for the sake of profit, ruining the lives of many that are barely surviving in their nine-to-five jobs. With high demands and low pay, it’s a miracle that people find the motivation to go through the motions each day, leading to the new trend of quiet-quitting. For Corporate Rebels Only: Why Tomorrow's Leaders are Quiet Quitting Today by Dale E Funk will guide readers to identify their personal goals, and to work toward their priorities in life while balancing these with the over-complicated corporate world. This book will teach readers the importance of putting themselves first and company results second, for a healthier balance as they take over the corporate world. It's time to change how nine-to-fives work.

For Corporate Rebels Only by Dale E Funk is an eye-opening motivational book about putting one’s mental and physical health before their job. This book emphasizes the importance of setting your personal goals and achieving those objectives while surviving in the corporate world. I loved the way that the author discussed why Millennials and Gen Z are quiet-quitting in great detail and rejected the misconceptions about the working culture of the younger generation. This book also spreads awareness about toxic working environments and how to manage those circumstances. The book successfully explores the multitude of reasons why corporations have gone wrong and the psychology behind their employees’ responses. This is an excellent book that serves as a reminder to the younger generation that enough is enough.

For the first time in US history, the current generation doesn't expect their standard of living to exceed that of their parents. The advent of the recent pandemic has precipitated a cultural change for workers while corporations continue to delve into increasingly exploitative practices to increase their profits. This has led to the rise of quiet-quitting among the millennial and Gen-Z-led workforce, who have realized the need for control over their work and expect no job security or retirement benefits from organizations that exploit them. In For Corporate Rebels Only: Why Tomorrow's Leaders are Quiet Quitting Today, Dale E. Funk explores the measures that will ensure employee happiness and well-being, the highest quality products and services, and profits for the company owners. Funk also examines the correlation between wealth and religion, emphasizing happiness isn't controlled by socio-economics, and advocates quiet-quitting for alternative rewards.

This is one of the most relevant books about corporate work culture to have come out this year. For Corporate Rebels Only sheds light on some of the vital societal issues stemming from profit-driven organizations that have led to severe wealth disparity and inflation and have forced most of the general populace to live from paycheck to paycheck. Dale E. Funk is especially critical of Big Pharma and the healthcare industry, where administrators have turned their backs on medical ethics with their relentless pursuit of profits. Funk cites the examples of a few extraordinary individuals who marched to the beat of their drum. He expands on Buddhist philosophies, as well as Bhutan's GHP index to reiterate the importance of happiness over material pursuits. This book will inspire you to pursue your happiness with renewed vigor. Highly recommended.
