Fabulous reads – Wipe that bum out of your life

The Asshole Survival Guide, Robert I. Sutton, Penguin Random House, ISBN: 9780241298992

It’s no surprise that being exposed to assh*les in the work place results in lower productivity and a dip in the general well-being of employees.

In The Asshole Survival Guide, Robert provides a practical and methodical game plan on how to effectively deal with said assh*les.

Sutton is a Stanford professor who has done his research: from groups of civil (and uncivil) servants, to French bus drivers and the more than 8 000 emails he has received on the topic.

His previous book, The No Asshole Rule was published a decade ago and went on to sell more than 800 000 copies in the US alone.

In a nutshell, The Asshole Survival Guide aims to teach readers how to deal with people who treat them like dirt. It also gets you to take a long, hard look in the mirror to establish if the problem might lie with you. This book is quite a serious take on dealing with negativity and eliminating it from your life.

It focuses on the work environment which, given that this is where we spend most of our time and is the one place where it is not possible to choose our own company, we are most likely to encounter bullies, or personalities which clash with our own.

An entertaining and useful guide for any employee, manager, or individual who feels they might be dealing with a genuine assh*le.
