Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of The No Asshole Rule reads his guide on how to preserve civility, sanity, and success when facing a business world full of difficult people.

Since The No Asshole Rule became a national best seller a decade ago, Robert Sutton has been asked, in a thousand different ways, the best way to deal with an asshole. This new guide presents Sutton's signature prescriptive advice for everyone who is feeling oppressed, demeaned, or disrespected by people who treat them badly.

Drawing on a trove of real-life stories from people dealing with implacable jerks in every kind of setting, Sutton delivers a highly effective, methodical game plan, starting with a diagnosis: Exactly what kind of asshole are you dealing with? From there Sutton provides thoughtful, field-tested strategies aimed at specific asshole-deflecting goals - avoiding them, outwitting them, disarming them, and countering their negative influence. He even teaches you how to look inward to stifle your own jackass.

Equally useful and entertaining, The Asshole Survival Guide helps you develop a robust new outlook that can preserve the sanity of your workplace and personal life and stop all those perfectly good days from being ruined by some jerk.

    "Excellent Guide"

    I thought the subject was an excellent topic for personal growth, but found the book to be slightly less than I expected.

    "A must read for everyone"

    As an asshole survivor Bob outlined in his first book a different way of running a business, an office, an organization. This book skillfully take you through the next step - how to handle them, and, more importantly, be aware that we can all be one (he even lists the high risk situations and triggers). He did a spectacular job with the audio and I can't wait for his next book.
