to savetheassistants.com reader Maggie, who informed me that we got a shoutout
in todays edition of the New York and Philadelphia Metros. The
article, featuring an interview with Vicky Oliver (the author of
Bad Bosses, Crazy Coworkers & Other Office Idiots), gives practical tips on how to cope with evil bosses and credit-stealing coworkers. I was hugely flattered that one of the tips on dealing with a boss who bullies you is to threaten him or her that youre going to post your horror story on savetheassistants.com
youre having trouble working with "The Grumpy Martyr," "The Credit Snatcher," or "Mr. Mumble,"
Vicky Oliver's 201 tips for dealing with problematic inter-personal office
relations will provide you valuable advice mixed with laugh out loud humor.
Oliver's new book approaches office politics in a direct, focused and solutions-based
way. This book is your survival manual for today's modern workplace. I was
impressed by how many of the problem people the author captured, how clearly
she presented the situation, and how sensible and realistic her solutions
Oliver has your career travel guide for you as you try to cope, move on, and
move up the professional ladder.

With schools increasingly being run (into the ground) by the same type of
corporate mentality, some of this stuff might actually apply. But it is mostly
directed at the greedy, corporate, capitalistic, chew-em-up and spit-em-out
world. If you know someone foolish enough to venture into that world, get
them a holiday gift.
