Whether you work for a tyrant, a control freak, or a bona fide psychotic, this book gives you permission to hate your boss and still manage to be productive. Upbeat and offbeat, this cure for the common-dictator explains why we hate bosses, why the "perfect boss" is a pipe dream, how suffering under a bad boss can improve your work, why it's advantageous to be a smart follower, and how to get along--even emphatize--with even the most power-crazed ruler.

Review:

Whether master manipulator or serious psycho, a bad boss can make life miserable for everyone. Most workers simply can't walk away from a sticky supervisory situation, however; they need to learn instead how to cope as well as thrive. Career expert and syndicated columnist Bob Weinstein proposes ways to do just that in I Hate My Boss!: How to Survive and Get Ahead When Your Boss Is a Tyrant, Control Freak, or Just Plain Nuts! The result is an upbeat handbook filled with solid suggestions for getting along with any boss from hell. --Howard Rothman

From the Back Cover:

How Does Your Boss Rate in this Awful Boss Test?

TRUE FALSE My boss-- 1. Shouts at 90 decibels or greater______ ______ 2. Shoots down everybody's ideas but his own______ ______ 3. Loses turned-in projects (and denies receiving them)____ 4. Believes in selfless dedication--yours______ ______ 5. Gives raises regularly (to relatives)______ ______ 6. Never heard of Casual Friday______ ______ 7. Reprimands employees in public______ ______ 8. Is so busy managing up, doesn't manage down ______ ____ 9. Inspires affection ... in rodents______ ______ How did your boss score? One or more "true"? Then everything you ever thought is confirmed. Your boss is horrible. Upbeat and offbeat, this cure-for-the-common-dictator explains why bosses are hated more often than loved, why the "perfect boss" is a pipe dream, and shows how you can hate your boss but still be productive and further your own career. I Hate My Boss! shows you how to get along with even the most power-crazed ruler--and explains how you can turn the worst of times into the best of times by capitalizing on the situation in ways you never thought possible!
