Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“I like the idea of managing your boss because it changes the power equation: Employees often feel helpless in the face of overwhelming authority of the people they report to. To me, what Dobson really is talking about is a way to achieve mutual respect”

—Carol Kleinman, On the Job nationally syndicated columnist
