Der Arshloch-Faktor is still hot in Germany. It is currently the top business book and #22 overall on Amazon. I am also getting a fairly constant stream of VERY emotional e-mails from German readers. Most contain troubling stories about acts of oppression and how people are fighting back. A couple are from people who worry that they are assholes -- one asked me how he can go about finding out if he is an asshole. Most are supportive of the book, but I've received a couple from people (who I don't think read the book based on the content, but I could be wrong) that just blasted me and argued that the book was going to make the problem worse ather than better in German organziations. I confess to be a bit overwhelmed by so many emotional emails. If German readers have any insights into both why they book seems to have struck a chord in your country and why the German's who are writing me are even more vehment in their reactions than elewhere, I would be most grateful.
Thanks and I thank all of you who bought Der Arshloch-Faktor.
