Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of The No Asshole Rule

Good Boss, Bad Boss was inspired by the thousands of emails, calls and conversations that Robert Sutton received after publishing his best seller The No Asshole Rule. He found that most of the stories and cries for help he received revolved around one central figure in every workplace: the boss.

Sutton's subsequent research showed that the success of every boss depended heavily on how well (or badly) they managed those they worked with. In Good Boss, Bad Boss, he demonstrates this by weaving together the best psychological and management secrets with true stories, revealing the mind-set and moves of the best bosses and contrasting them with the behaviour of the worst.

If you want to understand how the best bosses think and act so that you can get better at your job or find a better boss to work for, Good Boss, Bad Boss has all the answers.

Critic Reviews

"I am frequently asked, 'Tom, my brother/sister/friend is taking on a new leadership role. What should they read?' I always respond the same way, by recommending one and only one book: Bob Sutton's Good Boss, Bad Boss." (Tom Peters, New York Times best-selling author of In Search of Excellence)

Cadence interruoting a great story

Intonation and cadence from the narrator was off on occasions, but great leadership lessons as a whole. Bob Sutton is one of the great thinkers and modern leadership gurus.
