I'm a huge, raving fan of Bob Sutton's writing. His blog, Work Matters, is consistently engaging, and I loved his book, The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't. Bob's new book, Good Boss, Bad Boss: How to Be the Best... and Learn from the Worst, just came out, and it is every bit as good as the last one. Because I work as a writer, I don't really have a boss or act as a boss, but even so, I found it fascinating. Bob has so many interesting things to say about what good bosses do and don't do. There's a lot of information that that is widely applicable, no matter what your job situation.
