The Office is truly one of the most digestible shows ever produced. For long over a decade, the American rendition of the British invention has kept viewers entertained countless times, often enough to forget the fact that its roots stem from across the pond. Origins aside, an upcoming book, Welcome to Dunder Mifflin: The Ultimate Oral History of The Office, looks to deliver the untold tales from the set of Scranton.
The long-awaited retrospective was written by show producer Ben Silverman, is narrated by Brian Baumgartner, the actor who starred as the show’s beloved buffoon Kevin Malone, and features a foreword by Greg Daniels, the show’s renowned developer, detailing all there is to know about the beloved series’ past. Filled with photographs and stories galore, the book has already accumulated a hefty amount of rave reviews from a handful of noteworthy book reviewers. As entertaining as behind-the-scenes photos might be, standing out amongst the rest of the book are its individual memories written by the entire cast of The Office, from Steve Carrell to Creed Bratton.
Whether casual or devoted, fans will be sure to get a kick out of this first-hand look at the show. At 424 pages, you’ve got to wonder whether Dunder Mifflin supplied the paper to publish The Ultimate Oral History of The Office. Nevertheless, the book is available to order now for $21 and will be released on November 16.
