I just typed in "bad boss" into the search field and well, let's just say the topics are definitely NOT what I was looking for! That's a whole other type of bad boss, and mine is the *workplace situation only.* I'm looking to see if anyone's got a book about having a terrible boss, sort of the self-help kind, motivational kind (though NOT religious whatsoever). How to get yourself through the situation, deal with it. I'm finding it impossible to do so, so I just find myself turning to my favorite place -- books. I remember once there was a book called something like "When Bad Bosses Happen to Good Workers" or something like that. Humorous CAN be OK - but I'm more looking for some words of advice or wisdom. My only RC is for a non-smoking home. I'm fine with books that come from PBS or wherever else. I don't even really need a deal, if that makes a difference or not. Please PM, as I don't always check. Thank you!
