Review

"This is much more than an inspired self-help guide for the embattled employee. Jill Walker s knowledgeable and entertaining book should be required reading for managers everywhere. They say that people work better when they feel good about themselves, so how hard can good management be? Keep this book visible. They ll know you re on to them." Mark Bradley, author, consumer columnist --Mark Bradley, author, consumer columnist<br /><br />For anyone who has ever found that the boss who interviewed them was totally different from the one who they now work for even though they are the same person then this book is for you! I found myself relating back to past bosses as I read the different profiles and thinking how different work could have been if I had known this stuff earlier. It profiles 9 of the main styles of mad bosses and managers, highlights their key warning signs and gives you plenty of tips for counteracting and dealing with their quirks and irritations. Littered with case studies and anecdotes, which are both funny and sad at the same time, this book is brilliant. If you work as an employee, then please get this book. Even if you are happy with your current boss, it s a good idea to have a heads up before you go for your next interview. You may find it saves your sanity. And if you are already a boss or manager, then read this so that you can understand how your madness affects your staff. Terri Bodell NACHP --Terri Bodell NACHP<br /><br />This book could save your life. It s a surgical handbook for managing your boss better than they manage you. Also works for marriages.

From the Author

It wasn’t difficult to research this book. Poor management is sadly so very common. Almost everyone has a story about a mad bad boss they once worked for – go on, ask!
If you’ve ever suffered because of the behaviour of a bad boss, this book will be of interest to you. You will learn how to deal with bosses who are bullies or who let you down. Is Your Boss Mad? helps you from the interview process, to identify what sort of boss you may be potentially letting yourself in for right from the start. The strategies suggested for coping with your mad boss are not hypothetical ‘airy’ ideas; they are hard boiled instructions for your communications, body language, and actions. It further suggests ways to bring a little levity to the workplace, with out impacting productivity or focus.
If I were a boss, I would want to read this too. There is already a recognised link between happy employees and happy customers, and it’s accepted that a happy customer is likely to be more valuable than an unhappy one. Do you have happy employees?
This is a book written with a passion born of experience. The author sincerely wishes to empower employees who can be, despite the plethora of management gurus and training courses, manipulated and seemingly powerless at the hands of their desperately inadequate managers.
The boss didn’t come with a user manual – till now!
