Summary of Jerks at Work
How to Deal with People Problems and Problem People
Warning: This book may be offensive to copy-machine hogs, lunchroom tyrants, meeting monopolizers and workplace jerks of all kind.
Finally, a book that honestly identifies and analyzes that prolific workplace species - the jerk. Organized by situation and topic, Jerks at Work presents the answers to at least 200 jerk-related questions from real-life readers that were originally published in author Ken Lloyd’s syndicated On the Job column. The book is psychologically sound, excruciatingly direct, extremely funny and, above all, actually helpful. Lloyd does a splendid job of covering all the bases and every kind of jerk, from the boardroom to the mailroom. getAbstract highly recommends this book to everyone, because every company has at least one jerk.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to deal with jerks at work
- How jerks can destroy an employee’s self-esteem
- Why you should distance yourself from a co-worker jerk

4 years agoI like the conclusion that reminds us to also check ourselves, so we don't exhibit the same jerk behaviors we just read about.
This is like when you're pointing a finger on someone, you're actually pointing 3 fingers at yourself
