The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't - Robert I. Sutton

This was on my list of books I wanted to finish before going on vacation, and I finally managed it.


For the most part, I really like what I do and the people I work with, but there are issues that need to be dealt with that aren't. This was an engaging read that I felt was spot-on in a lot of ways, but unfortunately it didn't give me what I'd really hoped for, which was good strategies for dealing with one particular person in my workplace that didn't boil down to "do what you can to survive and then get a job someplace else at the first opportunity."
