Did you know that the vast majority of people don't like (or simply detest) their jobs? And that nearly 90% of those who leave their jobs do so because of their relationship with their direct superior? Is there an epidemic of sadistic bosses torturing devoted employees out there? This is the story of how, after encountering "horrible" bosses, experiencing office scenes that would embarrass the Marquis de Sade, enduring sleepless nights of anguish, and suppressing the urge to go out and shoot ducks with a shotgun, the author, from the pinnacle of the corporate pyramid and trapped in the famous "disguised disaster of success," was able to shake things up and outline her own project that fulfilled her.

As an expert in digital disruption, an independent director on various boards, an investor, and a meditator, Marina shares, with captivating humor and brutal honesty, her professional journey, why she chose the metaphor of ducks to talk about the fears and prejudices that prevent us from "taking flight," and what she learned along the way to navigate the pandemic of work apathy in our time and regain the desire to conquer the world.
