The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't (Hardcover)
by Robert I. Sutton (Author)
From Publishers Weekly
This meticulously researched book, which grew from a much buzzed-about article in the Harvard Business Review, puts into plain language an undeniable fact: the modern workplace is beset with assholes. Sutton (Weird Ideas that Work), a professor of management science at Stanford University, argues that assholes—those who deliberately make co-workers feel bad about themselves and who focus their aggression on the less powerful—poison the work environment, decrease productivity, induce qualified employees to quit and therefore are detrimental to businesses, regardless of their individual effectiveness. He also makes the solution plain: they have to go. Direct and punchy, Sutton uses accessible language and a bevy of examples to make his case, providing tests to determine if you are an asshole (and if so, advice for how to self-correct), a how-to guide to surviving environments where assholes freely roam and a carefully calibrated measure, the "Total Cost of Assholes," by which corporations can assess the damage. Although occasionally campy and glib, Sutton's work is sure to generate discussions at watercoolers around the country and deserves influence in corporate hiring and firing strategies.

Did the HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW really print an article that used the word "asshole" eight times? Apparently so, and from it evolved this audiobook, a handy guide to the domineering bullies found in the workplace, on the sports field, and in government. Turns out that these "kiss up, kick down" individuals don't just ruin our day, they also cost business and government a great deal of time and money. Is there hope? Sutton seems to think so and offers systems, case studies, and ideas for weeding out these unpleasant individuals. The author reads this abridgment in a friendly, informative style, making it one of the stronger business titles this season.
