Sir,
Many thanks for the article. I would agree that it is essential to have a good boss to kind of cover you. As a safety & Environment professional at the early stage of my career(1992-96) I was very lucky to have a functional manager who stood by me come what may!!.(Implementing Safety norms against business wishes was a tough ask even then!!).
Good boss matters a lot, I would assume they are becoming endangered species. 50 Years down the line, some reactivation will be needed urgently to prevent them extinct..

Thanks Professor Sutton for your HBR article. I should be getting "Good Boss,Bad Boss" by this Tuesday from amazon.com thru DHL. Just procured the old paperback edition of your earlier work "The No Asshole Rule" locally till I saw that a new edition is out. It is a great read! Look forward to reading up on your work. Also took the BRASS survey yesterday. I got to know of your work very recently after reading up on Scott Eblin's blog.

Best wishes,

Generous of you to share the reprints Robert, thanks!

My initial 'skim' highlighted stories that range from corporate settings to law enforcement, to Torre and Steinbrenner. ;-)

It will be a good lense to use in reference to my current role.
