English Summary/英文概要: The American Dream used to include a white picket fence, 2.2 kids, and a dog. In today’s frantic world, it’s . . . well, let’s be honest, it’s quite different. But what would happen if you did have the nerve to quit your white-collar job? Prioleau Alexander can tell you: He walked away from a lucrative career as an advertising executive, seeking a life like that dude on Kung Fu. Over the next year he worked minimum-wage jobs as a pizza deliveryman, ice cream scooper, construction worker, ER tech, fast food jockey, and even cowboy on a Montana dude ranch. In YOU WANT FRIES WITH THAT?, Prioleau explores life at minimum wage and proves unequivocally that the grass is not always greener on the other side


Chinese Summary/中文概要: 你相信有人会辞去白领职务转行从事最低工资标准的下等工作?这类大胆甚至让人不解的行为究竟会带来怎样的后果?
漂亮的白色木栅栏、两三个活泼可爱的孩子外加一条聪明的宠物犬……如此幸福美满的景象通常是受人追捧的美国梦必不可少的构成部分。
但,那是过去……
不得不承认,紧张的生活节奏以及竞争激烈的工作环境让当初和谐美好的情愫从记忆中逐渐消退直至消失。不知不觉中,一些看似不可思议,实则引人深思的举动悄然产生,为如今的疯狂世界再添具有浓重色彩的一笔……
前任海军长官、广告执行官,Prioleau Alexander 由于厌倦工作上与客户的频繁往来,放弃高职高薪的现有工作。随后一年,他开始从事一系列只有最低工资水平的琐碎杂工,包括披萨外送员、冰淇淋盛装工、建筑工地的清洁工,蒙大拿农场的牧童等……
本书呈现了作者探索低收入生活真谛的历程,内容充实丰满、口吻幽默风趣。最终成功证明得不到的东西不一定都是好的,这山望着那山高有时也并非真理!(ZY)
