From the Back Cover:

Sanity-saving solutions for dealing with bad bosses!

A nasty boss is a force to be reckoned with--one that can wreak havoc on your life at work and at home. With a nasty boss, you're on the job around the clock: you worry about job security while taking a shower; you run three red lights on the way home because you're busy hatching plans to get in your boss's good graces; you waste the weekend simmering with anger over the latest office mandate. Nasty Bosses is your passport to a happier, calmer, and saner life.

In this sanity-saving guide, Dr. Jay Carter, the bestselling expert on nasty behavior, sets his sights on problem bosses. He provides no-nonsense insights into bad-tempered behavior, offering proven techniques for handling snide superiors.

Combining humor with the know-how of a trained psychologist and former corporate manager, Dr. Carter offers strategies for:

  • Navigating around the Carrot Dangler--the boss who motivates with promises but never delivers
  • Discerning the deceptive Two-Face--the supervisor who tells everyone a different story to appease them all
  • Coping with the Crusader--the chief who demands fanatical hard work and dedication from employees but doesn't return the favor
  • Dealing with the Noper--the leader who rejects your ideas only to later implement them as his or her own
  • And many other types of nasty bosses
