I wish I would have had this book when I was just starting out, and it would have probably saved my job a few times.
It is hard to know what to do when you are working for a boss who acts like he is just getting rolling into his "terrible twos".
First off, the book gives great examples of boss behavior with examples and descriptions.
Next, there are great examples of how to not only deal with the behavior, but how to correct or turn it to my advantage.
Finally, Lynn Taylor has a knack of making the "classroom" funny and informative.
The examples are useful, easy to follow, and enjoyable reading.
Who knows, you might want to get your boss a copy with the important lines highlighted.
