Toxic Coworkers: How to Deal with Dysfunctional People on the Jobby Alan A. Cavaiola, Neil J. Lavender
Pub. Date: 11/28/2000
Publisher: New Harbinger Publications
We’ve all worked with someone “difficult,” someone who could always be trusted to blow up to space out or do or say something wildly inappropriate. As it happens, those of us who concluded “the guy’s just nuts” were right: a fair number of those impossible-to-get-along-with employees actually do have full-fledged personality
We’ve all worked with someone “difficult,” someone who could always be trusted to blow up to space out or do or say something wildly inappropriate. As it happens, those of us who concluded “the guy’s just nuts” were right: a fair number of those impossible-to-get-along-with employees actually do have full-fledged personality disorders. In Toxic Coworkers, the authors help us to recognize a variety of common personality traits and disorders, understand how they come about, and learn to develop effective strategies for dealing with them. So the next time the narcissist who runs the front desk is bugging you, or you need to squeeze a favor out of the schizoid who handles inventory, you’ll know exactly what to do.

Every person with a job or about to get a job should take their last few dollars and order this book from Barnes and Noble. After the first page, I overwhelmingly felt that Authors Cavaiola and Lavender were like 'Betwitched TV series' and sat up in the ceiling observing my workplace. To save humanity this a absolute must read.
Toxic coworkers was very intersting and helpful in trying to deal with your fellow coworkers. I really enjoyed the book and i suggest everyone who works in a small business or large business to read Toxic Coworkers. It will help you understand how to detect a dysfunctional coworker and how to deal with them...
Ever wonder why your boss acts like scrooge, or why the women that sits across from you is always complaining? All work environments have problems, because people have problems that they bring to the workplace. "Toxic Co-workers" teaches one why people act the way they do and how to deal with them in the workplace so the job can get done. Finally a solution!!
