From the Back Cover:

Featured in The Wall Street Journal and Fast Company. Real People. Real Problems. Real Solutions. Suffering under an intimidating supervisor? Mistreated by thoughless management? Demeaned by a dictator? Bullied by a lazy boss? Used and abused by heartless company policy? You're not alone. The fact is that such nightmare situations are a way of life for many working people. But help is on the way. William and Kathleen Lundin, renowned corporate "therapists" for dysfunctional organizations, have helped hundreds of employees break the cycle. Through candid interviews with the real people who have endured difficult working conditions, this book offers hope for dealing with those "bosses from hell." When Smart People Work for Dumb Bosses brings corporate stupidity out of the closet. Through stories from the sales manager who actually wields a baseball bat to keep his staff "motivated," to the health care supervisor who falunts the fact that his policies are unethical, you will learn practical strategies for coping with any dysfunctional workplace and managing your own "dumb boss."
