    DO YOU WANT TO FIRE YOUR BOSS ?

    I find my boss naturally acts out multiple traits all in one day. So I like the fact that I can just flip to any of the 20 traits/chapters that I had to deal with today, and read tips and funny stories about how other people dealt with them. ( It's good to know that I am not the only person dealing with this ) I've put the tantrums, stubborn, needy, short attention spans and ignoring chapters to the test, and they're working. The " Don'ts" are exaggerated ( the LOL part ) , but many are still about the mistakes people make. I've actually pursued milder versions of some of them without realizing it. I really like the end of each chapter, there's a funny Q&A, as if a concerned parent is writing in about their toddlers behavior, right out of a parenting magazine, with the " .. should I be worried ? etc. which is just funny to read. Good Stuff!!
