Editorial Reviews

Book - Artie - Reader
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and was captivated by your riveting expose' on people who work in a professional business environment. I worked with every type of "idiot" portrayed in your book throughout my Wall Street career. I couldn't wait to get to each succeeding chapter and I look forward to hearing more in a follow-up to this true reflection of life as it is.
Book - Mahesh - Reader
A thoroughly enjoyable read – both informative and entertaining. This is the book that we wish was available for reference when dealing with difficult personalities and challenges at the workplace. As a fellow Program Manager, I wholly concur with the recommendations made by Doug (the Author) on handling the same. A "must read" for anyone who wants to progress in their career, really!
Book - Diane - Reader
A Lifetime Working with Idiots & How to Survive…is a great book. Useful information for every person, in any profession, regardless of age. A must read for anyone who wants to get ahead in business and in life. The Author is an excellent writer and mentor who has transcribed his years of experience into a “fun and informative read”. Enjoy!
Book - Frank - Reader
I wish I had read it 25 years ago. Maybe I could have done better in the corporate rat race, or maybe screwed up less, or bit my tongue more, or shot from the hip less. The reward for doing a bang up job is getting borrowed like a tool, told the bar has been raised when expecting a raise, and watching lesser folks take the credit. I let it happen, so it is partly my fault. I made room for the next pawn. It’s their turn to figure it out. Every one of them needs to read this book!
