The list author says: "Your work should be a place where you feel inspired, creative, able to focus just on the job to be done. For a lot of people (including myself) it often feels like a battlefield/minefield/dungeon/poorly managed kindergarten. You could be an employee dealing with an inadequate boss, or a manager dealing with an unsupportive team. These books helped me to get a better perspective on the issue."
"Funny, informative, practical. When bosses are under a lot of stress they may act like children. Use non-confrontationa, humane "parenting" without patronizing. Helps both employees & managers understand each other better. There is a very good chapter for CEOs on how to "humanize the workplace.""
"The book helps employers understand their employees' fundamental needs and how not meeting those needs may force people to leave. Viewing employees as people to be understood, rather than problems to be solved. Great job of helping bosses bridge the gap."
"Emotional reaction to disruptive workplace behavior can prevent you from realizing your full potential. A Harvard-trained psychotherapist offers ideas on how to survive an unfriendly environment. Useful for people on all levels of the corporate ladder."
