If You’re a Manager, You Need This!

Worked around Jim. Book is true to his spirit

Jim and I shared a common bond early. His book is a perfect distillation. I admit being late to the party, but kinda glad I waited. Its great to read informative and useful knowledge.

I received a free copy of this book, but t

I won a Kindle edition of "Don't Be a Dick Manager: The Down & Dirty Guide to Management"

I always said that if I became a "boss"/manager, I didn't want to repeat the mistakes of the dick managers I had the misfortune to work under. Granted, most managers from my past were mediocre, and a few were very, very good at their jobs, but there isn't a single manager out there that couldn't stand to improve a little bit. If you think you're nailing it, you aren't. No one is perfect. Humble yourself a bi
