It's great that corporate America may come to recognize this, but what about those of us in the public sector, who work with assholes that can't be fired?

I am a public school teacher who has been harassed by a co-worker, and watched her do the same to others (who have since left). I just gave notice myself. My union cannot help, an employment lawyer wasn't any help, and my boss can't fire the lady....


Hi Professor Sutton,

I'm a Stanford grad and a tutor for your friends, the Dietrichs--I just want to thank you for writing this book because, as a young professional, it helps me to remember what the working world SHOULD be about and will help me remember that I don't need to change the nice parts of myself to be successful in the long run. I look forward to getting through the rest of the book! Take care.


great article in the Chron. Some office workers need these
