Synopsis:
If the average tenure in a job varies from two to five years, then most people will have between 9 and 21 jobs during their career, between the ages of 21 and 65.

It's about how to survive in a hostile environment and move towards a more fulfilling work life, when your boss takes a dislike to you or treats you badly and threatens your job. Learn about the nature of bosses in business. Learn about your own ego, the helpful use of language, and some practical techniques to help you remain calm.
