Do you want to know what is a very interesting book? It’s The No Asshole Rule, Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn’t by Robert I. Sutton, PhD.
For several months I have seen this title on the book shelves and just couldn’t bring myself to read it. Finally, I decided to get a copy and see what it was all about. I have to say I was surprised. I know the title may be offensive to some people, but when reading the book, I have to admit that the term butt-hole isn’t what I’m thinking when I have to interact with certain people.
Anyway, this book is full of case studies that explain the advantages, disadvantages, remedies, and qualifications of being an @#$hole. I enjoyed the book and it was good for a little self evaluation. It is definitely one of those books where it is easy to picture someone else while reading it.
