About this deal

I haven’t listened to their podcast yet, but I already know I will love it! This book was upbeat, honest and full of so many fun stories and insights. The Office has suggestive dialogue and some mild sexual references throughout. Most of these aren’t severe and they can be considered mild. There is also some blurred nudity that can contain some sexual images (pictures of people having sex, dangling penises, etc.) Here is some examples of suggestive dialogue shown: We hear “That’s what she said” Jokes (usually not too severe), we hear some conversation about “Boning” people, we hear they Michael “did” a girl.”, we hear talk of boobs. The suggestive and sexual dialogue isn’t really much to worry about, and most episodes have none in it. What are some pitfalls Michael stumbles into as he attempts to build team morale? How would you foster a positive work culture if you were in his shoes?

So I was bound to love this book—and I did. I loved reading about the experience Jenna and Angela had while making it. I loved hearing about their relationships with the cast and crew. I felt like I was right there with them on the set—and in a very small way, a part of their amazing friendship. How do the characters on The Office demonstrate self-control and teamwork? Why are these important character strengths? The selling point for me was the collection of pictures that accompany these stories (putting faces with names). Be warned, however, the pictures (at least in the Kindle version of the book) are all credited (“Courtesy of Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey” over and over) but NONE of them are captioned. You have to make assumptions about who is in the photo and when/why, etc. Doing this a few times seems fine but doing this hundreds of times is not fun. It was tedious. I’m familiar with the Who’s Who of actors, writers, sometimes directors but I don’t know which guy is the boom operator or the props creator. It would be so nice to have a caption that reads something like “Pictured left to right: John Doe, Joe Schmoe on the first day of filming!”. Read by Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey with exclusive bonus material contributed by Rainn Wilson, Creed Bratton, Oscar Nunez, Brian Baumgartner, Steve Carell, Ed Helms, Ellie Kemper, Kate Flannery and Jennifer Garner. If you didn’t watch the office you’re going to be bored though, it’s def not the book for people who didn’t watch.I really appreciated their love for the crew who worked on the show. Gave me an insight into that part of something I loved that I’d never thought of before. Now I have a deeper appreciation for the show. The Office is one of my all time favorite shows so when this book came out, I knew I needed to read it. I’m so happy I did. An intimate, behind-the-scenes celebration of beloved The Office co-stars Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey’s friendship, and an insiders' view of Pam Beesly, Angela Martin, and the iconic TV show. Core characters are a mixed bag, with plenty of flaws and foibles, but most mean well. At least a handful seem to actually like their jobs. Jim and Pam are kind and can be relatable. Dwight is extremely loyal to the company, sometimes to a fault. Michael tries his best to have his team deliver excellence.

DRUG CONTENT: A couple episodes have a primary focus on substances such as Marijuana and several other drugs. Nothing is shown being smoked/consumed however. We only see pictures of the drugs along with the lists of them and confrontations about them (Talks about smoking pot, being offered drugs etc.). Probably the most heavy on substances is season 2 episode 18 “The Drug Test”One character has an ongoing problem with alcohol (played for laughs), occasionally getting drunk at office functions where it's served. Another has a history of drug use and still uses marijuana, etc. References to cocaine, and it's implied that one of the characters sells illegal drugs. I liked The Office when it was airing live but I’ve come to love it in the past few years as a true comfort show. I know which episode it is in the first 30 seconds but that usually doesn’t stop me from rewatching or laughing like it’s one of my first 3-4 times seeing the episode.

We’re not the experts on The Office, you are! If there’s anything we missed, or if you have any burning questions you wanted answered about upcoming episodes, please send them to [email protected] with the episode title in the subject line. A smart, sweet look from inside The Office about how the show spawned enduring friendships and unexpected careers. Frequent listeners of the “Office Ladies” podcast won’t learn anything new by reading this book (because they’ve pretty much covered these stories already) but curious fans of the U.S. version of “The Office” will likely find this book to be an entertaining collection of behind-the-scenes stories written by Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey. The biggest question when it comes to this book is should you read it or listen to the audiobook. I did both! (Thank you library!)


It was a pleasure for us to make the show, and I think because of that, it is a pleasure to watch." With The Office being one of my all time favorite comedy TV series, The Office BFFs went straight on my tbr the minute I heard about it. I had read The Office: The Untold Story of the Greatest Sitcom on the 2000's two years ago and really enjoyed it, and I had a feeling I would like this book even more.
