The I Hate My Job Handbook

How to Deal with Hell At Work
A non fiction book by

Does the very mention of your boss's name make your left eye twitch uncontrollably? Does the clock seem to move with the speed of Continental Drift between the hours of 9 to 5? Do your friends and family put their hands over their ears and sing "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" whenever you start to complain about office anger? If you answered yes to any of the above, then you are a charter member of the I-hate-my-job club.
But before you punch yourself out, be assured that there are ways to lower your work-misery index. With the help of two or three (hundred) war-scarred employees and numerous career experts, authors Ellen Tien and Valerie Frankel deliver you from office hell. You'll find practical guidelines and ingenious strategies to lessen the pain and lighten the load, including:
* How to deal with your fearful leader--the seven most common (not to mention frustrating) managerial types, from "Mr. Right-and-Don't-You-Forget-It" to "Sybil."
* The smartest ways to play office politics without feeling like a total sleaze--plugging into the grapevine, persuading your colleagues to dish, kissing up without losing your lunch.
* Quizzes, surveys, and clever ploys for the corporately challenged to get you through the daily grind.
* A blueprint to engineering your own firing, complete with a tidy severance package and a glowing recommendation letter--no kidding!
Plus true tales of sweet revenge! Just desserts are are right around the corner. . . .
