In 1982, my business partner and I were writing the business plan for our new business...which went to go public five years later!...and we got to the people part, and how we were going to hire people. I said I had heard about the airplane rule...if you had to fly across the country with someone, at the end of the trip, would you like them more or less. He said that was great, but what it really meant, was..we just won't hire assholes. It seemed to stick since it was crystal clear to us what that meant. Congrats on your book!
