Whether your company has 10 employees or 10,000, you must grapple with people you can't stand in the office. Luckily Jonathan Littman and Marc Hershon have written I Hate People!, a smart, counter-intuitive, and irreverent turn on the classic workplace self-help book that will show you how to identify the Ten Least Wanted — the people you hate — while revealing the strategies to neutralize them. Learn to fly right by the "Stop Sign" (nay-sayer) and rise above the pronouncements of the "Know-it-None." I Hate People! teaches you how to become a more effective Soloist -- one of those bold individuals daring to work alone or collaborate with a handful of other talented people....while artfully deflecting the rest.

In the meantime, featuring some of their common phrases, here's a handy guide for spotting the Ten Least Wanted, appearing now in an office near you...
