Publisher's Summary

In a landmark article published in the esteemed Harvard Business Review, Stanford University professor Robert I. Sutton addressed a taboo topic that affects every workplace: employees who are insensitive to their colleagues, corporate bullies, bosses who just don't get it, the kind of people who make you exclaim in exasperation, "What an asshole!"Now, in a definitive book that addresses this growing problem, Sutton shows you how you can work with unsavory people without becoming one of them yourself.

okay, I get it

Interesting, but nowhere near the best advice book I have read. Some parts are really great, and the self reflection this book triggers is valuable to even the nicest of us (like me!), but some of the advice is really terrible. For example, this is not an area where "fighting fire with fire" is a good idea. If you are sensitive enough to be bothered by these people, do you really want to become one of them as a means of coping? I suspect not. I picked up some things from this book that I really appreciate, but I am also very glad to have read more than this one book. Summary - its worth a listen if you are a self help junkie, but don't take the advice too much to heart.

Great Listen

Wow What a great book! I work with a verbially abusive person in the office. This book gave me insight into why he acts the way he does. It has helped me realize that his actions arent my fault.
