The Asshole Survival Guide: How to Deal with People Who Treat You Like Dirt by Robert I. Sutton
English | 2017 | Self Help | ePUB | 2.2 MB
Since his book The No Asshole Rule became a national bestseller a decade ago, Robert Sutton has heard this question asked in a thousand different ways. The Asshole Survival Guide presents Sutton’s signature prescriptive advice for anybody who is feeling oppressed, demeaned, or disrespected by assholes.
Equally useful and entertaining, The Asshole Survival Guide delivers a cogent and methodical game plan, starting with diagnosis—what kind of asshole problem, exactly, are you dealing with? From there, Sutton provides field-tested, evidence-based, and sometimes surprising strategies aimed at specific asshole-deflecting goals—avoiding them, outwitting them, disarming them, sending them packing, and developing one’s protective psychological armor. Sutton even teaches readers how to look inward to stifle one’s own inner jackass.
Ultimately, this survival guide is about developing an outlook and personal plan that will help you preserve the sanity in your work life, and stop all those perfectly good days from being ruined by some jerk.
