Most books that deal with ridiculous behaviors in the workplace are premised largely on conjecture, anecdotes, and limited data, but that's not the case with Office Idiots. Written by Ken Lloyd, one of the foremost experts on jerks at work, this book relies on data from actual workplaces across America to present a sweeping and frighteningly accurate snapshot of the antics of office idiots.

Based on thousands of letters to his newspaper column and Website, jerksatwork.com, this book spotlights office idiots wherever they exist in an organization, followed by practical advice on what to do and even what to say when you encounter them. In addition to providing a vast array of hands-on (and hands-off!) tools, Office Idiots will also show you how to:

  • Deal with some of the most off-the-wall and absurd forms of office idiocy.
  • Avoid enabling behaviors that actually bring out office idiocy in others.
  • Make sure you don't become an office idiot.
