Although I no longer work outside the home, I still could relate to how difficult it is to work for a tyrant. I used to work full time as an accountant and had one particular boss who was just so difficult to work for that I ended up quitting. After reading this book, I have a better understanding for my old bosses nasty behaviour and learned some techniques that I could have tried out to bring a peaceful solution instead of me tucking tail and getting the heck out of there!
I am sure we all have had our share of work horror stories and maybe you work for a tyrant right now. If so, then this is a book that you could benefit by reading. The author gives workable strategies to use to make communication improve and how to deal with a difficult boss.
Tony Deblauwe comes across very knowledgeable and even gives exercises at the end of each chapter to help the reader gain a better understanding of the material and help apply it to their own situation. I liked that it was a hands on type of book that keeps you actively engaged and its a worthwhile read.
