I've read a lot of business books, but I've never had one make me laugh or gasp in shock like the 100 Worst Bosses. The stories are horrifying! It will hopefully make even your worst boss look appealing in comparison. At least none of my bosses have ever thrown a stapler at my head or gotten wasted every morning. It also made me feel better about my own management skills. But at the same time, there is still a lot to learn from these bad examples. Maybe I've never yelled at an employee in front of a group, but maybe I chose the wrong moment or the wrong way to criticize them instead of offering constructive criticism in a caring manner. Or, maybe I've ignored a problem until it grew too big to ignore. The book also offers suggestions on getting out of a bad situation if you have a bad boss and being financially prepared so you don't have to suffer through some of these situations.
I highly recommend this book if you're interested in a leadership book that is different from the 28,634 other leadership books on the market.
