So many offices have a boss who seems to find pleasure in humiliating workers or a manipulating employee who sabotages coworkers behind their backs. These kinds of people come in many disguises (there's the business psychopath, the perfectionist, etc.) and can make working difficult and frustrating. Psychology writer David L. Weiner has penned Power Freaks: Dealing with Them in the Workplace or Anyplace, an analysis of why people act this way, how to recognize them and how to develop a strategy for getting along with them. He also includes a quiz to help readers assess their own instinctual drive for power.
