Redundant, nothing new

I really hoped this book would give me some insight on a former (horrible) manager. But it seemed more like a communication skills workshop booklet. Plus, the author repeats the same mantras over and over. This may be a personal thing, but the narrator irritates me like nails on a chalkboard for this type of book (romance novel may be OK). I usually finish a book once I start reading but I just can’t finish this one.

lots of Aha Moments

Great book on how to work with different types of bosses. Some of it is fairly common sense, but it helps to put it into different categories and archetypes so that you can quickly identify and apply the right tactics.

The Boss Survival Guide Bible

EXTREMELY INSIGHTFUL!!! What's more succinct, programmatic, and most of all ACTIONABLE. This is not one of those books that is full of fluff and theory. It gets to the heart of the matter and gives you practical and excellent direction. YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK!

Every working professional must listen

I cannot recommend it more because in career, we will be seeing various kinds of bosses. No single person can mentor you more than this book.

Annoying Narration, for a teaching book.

The Narrator is annoying, she reads the book with an attitude. This book is not intended to be read in this fashion, of performing arts. It is a teaching book and the attitude can be left out. There are parts of the book that can benefit from the performance art but majority of the book should be read with less force and more teach. At times the narrator is so bad that I cannot follow the content. I am not done with the book but I’m writing this review because I might not finish the audio, and might have to go pick up the hard copy. Wish I could return this audiobook.
