Best book I've read in a while. I would love to recommend it to anyone and everyone I know except for the unusual title. In fairness, it did sell me the book. The book is way better than my expectations and useful for anyone working in a corporate environment. (In fact, it would even be useful to people close to such people).
Definitely worth reading!
Slightly different approach to those management and corporate problem-solving books. Identifies 101 different office dilemmas and what to do about that ... and what to do does not involve hanging up a picture of a sailboat with a motivation word under it.

Good Self Help Book – purchase own copy – and read through again and highlight!

This is an incredible book and should be mandatory reading for anyone going into the workforce!!! It's sarcastic, relevant, and dead on with what actually happens in the workplace. This book gives accurate scenarios, and extremely useful tips on how to deal with each circumstance and/or type of person you encounter. Incredibly useful read!!
A fun read-especially if you work in the crazy ward like I do. People in the office are strange. Lots of the insights are common sense and things you have seen, done, or read before but its a new spin on the emotional black hole that modern white collar work has become.
The title caught me since it often seems like i am the only sane one working. It gives a good perspective on what motivates people and how to use that understanding to deal with them.

It's my first book written by Al Bernstein, and the first book worth-reading this year. I am going to make practising the survival solutions in the book my new year resolution.

I like albert Bernstein's book and his emphasis on solutions for dealing with certain kinds of people. Humorous, frank and useful!
They are quick little senarios. Fun, but not overly informative or new.
Catchy title for a book full of drivel.
