If you have a job, chances are you have a boss. Indeed, everybody has a boss, whether it's someone at the supervisory, managerial, or executive level.

And if you're like everybody else, you know that keeping the boss happy with your performance is a major focus of your daily corporate life and career.

Problem is - and as Bob Sutton made clear in his classic THE NO ASSHOLE RULE - too many of us work for bosses who are jerks. And that's the starting point of BOSS. Based upon the thousands of letters, emails, and conversations Sutton has received since the publication of NO ASSHOLE RULE, he now focuses his common sense approach to what it is that delineates the great bosses in our world from the ones who are just good, so-so, or even worse.

Using real-life case studies, psychological research, and a thorough scan of the pertinent literature, Sutton delivers a pinpoint accounting of what the best bosses do. In short, Sutton delivers a blueprint manifesto for anyone who has been elevated into a position of authority, or would like to be.
