Most people spend over half their adult lives at work. This can mean spending all that time with a boss who is ignorant, incoherent, embarrassing, harassing, indecisive, dirty, smelly, sexist, vindictive, unappreciative and crude. Dealing with the Boss from Hell is a survival guide, with real-life strategies for dealing with the difficult person who is in charge. There are lots of tips on how to read the mind of the boss, how to deal with their tricks, keep a low profile, and even how to 'retrain' them. There is also great advice on how to stand up to them, talk honestly and directly, and if nothing works, how to get out quickly and cleanly. There are case studies of the different types of difficult boss, such as The Boor, Grumpy, The Slave Driver, and The Exploder , and how best to handle them. Dealing with the Boss from Hell is the book that will help everyone to cope with the most difficult of situations.
