The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn’t

About This Book:

In a landmark article published in the esteemed Harvard Business Review, Stanford University professor Robert I. Sutton addressed a taboo topic that affects every workplace: employees who are insensitive to their colleagues, corporate bullies, bosses who just don’t get it, the kind of people who make you exclaim in exasperation, “What an asshole!”

Now, in a definitive book that addresses this growing problem, Sutton shows you how you can work with unsavory people without becoming one of them yourself.
