From the Back Cover

Sanity-saving solutions for dealing with bad bosses!

A nasty boss is a force to be reckoned with--one that can wreak havoc on your life at work and at home. With a nasty boss, you're on the job around the clock: you worry about job security while taking a shower; you run three red lights on the way home because you're busy hatching plans to get in your boss's good graces; you waste the weekend simmering with anger over the latest office mandate. Nasty Bosses is your passport to a happier, calmer, and saner life.

In this sanity-saving guide, Dr. Jay Carter, the bestselling expert on nasty behavior, sets his sights on problem bosses. He provides no-nonsense insights into bad-tempered behavior, offering proven techniques for handling snide superiors.

Combining humor with the know-how of a trained psychologist and former corporate manager, Dr. Carter offers strategies for:

  • Navigating around the Carrot Dangler--the boss who motivates with promises but never delivers
  • Discerning the deceptive Two-Face--the supervisor who tells everyone a different story to appease them all
  • Coping with the Crusader--the chief who demands fanatical hard work and dedication from employees but doesn't return the favor
  • Dealing with the Noper--the leader who rejects your ideas only to later implement them as his or her own
  • And many other types of nasty bosses

This book blew me away! It is subtle. This is a sleeper. I was going through the book again and BANG! It propelled me right into my prefrontal lobe! I got it! What a brilliant book! This book is more than just words. I don't know how the author did it, but I am so grateful. If you don't get it, it's an OK book. If you get it, it snaps you into a different state of mind. I hope you get it.

Working for a nasty boss, this book helped make my job a bit easier. It gave great insight as to why someone behaves like they do as a boss - even though they are an adult - and how to cope.... Very good reference.

Format: Paperback
I would suggest that this book might be a good place for anyone in management to begin if he or she senses that there is some undercurrents in the work pool. It is readable and seems to understand how the employee under a supervisor feels. If your employee reads it, you should know of the strategies suggested for dealing with the boss (you). It was helpful. It is a quick read.

Format: Paperback
author talks about nasty bosses and how might confront them but then goes on talking about life, etc.... Last two chapters are just a waste of time - he may have just copied and paste them from any other book he was writing...
