Sooner or later, we all have to work for someone we can't stand-whether it's an inept supervisor, an undermining department head, or an overly demanding client. When that happens, some people quit, some suffer in silence, and others cope by sulking, obsessing, or retaliating.

But you can take charge of this crucial workplace relationship. Katherine Crowley and Kathi Elster, authors of the bestseller Working for You Is Killing Me, look at concrete examples of bad boss scenarios and offer a proven four-step program-Detect, Detach, Depersonalize, and Deal-for improving each situation.

'Once again, Crowley and Elster have identified a significant and abiding workplace issue and have addressed it masterfully.'
-Robert B. Cialdini, author of Influence: Science and Practice

'An incredibly important read.'

'This is one of those books that you'll be happy is on the shelf, because if you take it down every few months, you should be able to maintain a healthy perspective and keep your boss from controlling your career-or worse yet, your life.'

'A boss can kill you, and this book will bring you back to life! The ideas are great, but what's most impressive is the way it's personalized: You will find very specific ideas for any kind of crazy boss and any kind of personal style.'
-Dan Mulhern, radio host and author of Everyday Leadership
