Publisher's Summary

It's about the stuff you learn when you've worked for a boss you'd swear jumped out of a Dilbert cartoon; worked in a business whose performance careened up and down like a runaway clown car; faced legal or ethical problems that needed the wisdom of Solomon to sort out while they roiled your guts at night; and sat on the stand across from some third-rate Perry Mason or tried to be one yourself. It's about what you learn when you've knocked yourself out to put measurable six-figure savings back on the company's bottom line; or when an employee pleads for her job with tears in her eyes as she lies through her teeth to your face; or when you've faced down an employee who was spoiling for any chance he could get to sue your organization crippled; or maybe when you've dealt with the employee who told his supervisor he's going to shoot himself.
Like most everyone else, whenever I've cleaned up some HR mess - or made one of my own - I would learn something that I tucked in my back pocket, to pull out as needed when something similar popped up. Some people call this their bag of tricks, or wisdom. I've always thought of it as my little black book.

Very dated. Don't bother.

According to this auther race and sex descrimination in the workplace doesn't exist ( in his experience - like he knows everything ).
It's funny how the Mcgreggor-Smith government review UK 2017 says otherwise. And a letter has been sent warning companies in the Ftse 350 that they should do more to increase career opportunities for black and minority ethnic groups (BAME) or face legislation. And ťhe report also found BAME groups were being held back because of skin colour. I'm sure the USA is the same and anyway many organisations are international. I found other instances of inaccuracies. This book is not for the professional.
