Company is meant to be a satire of modern corporations and business books. There's plenty of scope for satire there, but I read a little less than half of Company and I didn't find anything particularly funny in it. The jokes and ironic situations were generally pretty obvious. The first chapter is available online for free. You may find something in it more interesting or funny than I did.
