With its rich symbolism and intricate plot, this book serves as a wake-up call, urging you to reevaluate the culture of corruption and rampant competition that permeates modern work environments.

Published by Sammy Champ Store, this satirical work portrays the stark reality of a society plagued by unbridled ambition, moral debasement, and self-centeredness. Yip draws from his personal experience in the finance industry to highlight how the industry’s winner-takes-all mentality fosters a toxic work culture.

At the heart of the narrative is the manipulative and power-hungry Wolf, whose unreasonable lust for power pits him against Monkey, a conscientious leader charged with guarding access to a highly coveted resource in the office. Tensions escalate until Monkey is murdered, triggering a series of events that ultimately reveal the true nature of the protagonist.

"Animal Spirits is a story that most office workers can relate to, especially those who work in a highly competitive industry," says author Yip. "The story uses animal characters to portray how humans' basest instincts can become the driving force in situations where anything goes as long as it furthers one’s interests."
