Work brings its fair share of agony. If it isn't a difficult colleague, its an unscrupulous competitor, or long hours & stressful deadlines. And as Jeremy Bullmore reminds us in this witty, trenchant & worldly wise book, our worst enemy is always waiting for an opportunity to do us down, show us up or knock us back: ourselves. Drawing on his long-running column for "Management Today, Bullmore gives us a tour around the whole range of office-related anxieties, from over-friendly bosses to what to do about hot desking; from anxiety over pay negotiations to coping with redundancy. He shows how willingness to consider the other person's perspective & ruthless honesty about ourselves can show the way forward in apparently intractable situations.
