When was the last time someone you work with or work for - really annoyed you or upset you in the office?
What did you do about it? Did you ignore the behavior in an attempt to hope it will go away or did you confront the person and discuss what the behavior?
In the book "The No Asshole Rule" the author looks at just these types of situations and looks for ways to empower average people to deal with these types of behavior. Bob Sutton is not one to shy away from using strong (appropriate) language to label behaviors that suck.
So whats the book like? Short on depth but long in tips and hints.
I enjoyed the first couple of chapters of this book but soon moved through the remaining content pretty quickly. Don't get me wrong this is a great book but don't expect it to take any more than a week at the most to read.
If you have people who behave like asshole's, you want to know how to deal with asshole's or you want to avoid hiring one - then get this book!
