From Library Journal:

Hochheiser (How To Work for a Jerk, Vintage, 1987) offers readers the benefit of his hindsight in this guide to workplace strategy. A veteran of the perils of dictatorial bosses, unhelpful co-workers, firings, and other debilitating work situations, Hochheiser has reassessed the meaning of the workplace and proposed a simple formula for success: Forget the idea that hard work alone leads to success and instead focus on building good relationships. The author asserts that the best way to win at work is to understand what is needed to support the egos of bosses, peers, and subordinates. Accurate assessment of those needs can then be indirectly associated with one's own personal goals and exploited to make substantive workplace gains. Methods of determining needs are given for a variety of situations, and strategies are offered to help make some of the worst work situations at least marginally better through networking and personal development. Raw, straightforward, and entertaining, this fast-paced self-help guide is for anyone disappointed with his or her job. Recommended for public libraries and career resource centers.?Robert L.
