It's shocking how little most of us know about the fundamental rules for workplace survival. Few people truly understand how to hang onto their jobs, how to effectively respond to threats to their jobs, or what to do if their main source of income is abruptly terminated. Considering how dependent almost all of us are on a steady source of income, coupled with how fragile jobs are in our current economy, it's shocking how little most of us know about the fundamental rules for workplace survival.I'm familiar with these knowledge gaps firsthand, because I've helped more than 18,000 panic-stricken clients deal with work-related issues. I've handled such emotionally charged workplace situations as:* Bosses who swear, threaten, and even hit their employees.* Foremen who order their staffers to operate under dangerous work conditions.* Supervisors who sexually harass employees.* Managers who punish workers for having children.* Managers who won't give a worker time off to care for a dying parent.* Executives who irrationally dislike certain staffers, and try to harass them into quitting.* Companies that try to force out employees because of gender, race, or age.* Bosses who risk destroying a company, with their out-of-control drug use or gambling.BEAT THE BOSS are easy-to-read, entertaining short stories which take a minute or two to read, but also provide accurate solutions, pulling back the curtain as to what really happens in the workplace.Every story ends with a question for the reader to answer:* Did Allison just quit-or was she fired?* Should Lori have gone straight to HR to complain about the sexual harassment?* Can Jim be fired for trying to take home the chicken that fell on the floor, which his store considers garbage?* When Bruce discovers the company that hired him lied about working conditions on his first day on the job, should he write a resignation letter or just walk away? Furthermore, with millions of Americans unemployed both now and in the foreseeable future, it's never been more important for everyone to educate themselves about how to hang onto their jobs, and about how to protect themselves if they're fired or forced to quit through no fault of their own.

You never dreamed being the boss would be so hard. You're caught in a web of conflicting expectations from subordinates, your supervisor, peers, and customers. You're not alone. As Linda Hill and Kent Lineback reveal in Being the Boss, becoming an effective manager is a painful, difficult journey. It's trial and error, endless effort, and slowly acquired personal insight. Many managers never complete the journey. At best, they just learn to get by. At worst, they become terrible bosses. This new book explains how to avoid that fate, by mastering three imperatives: · Manage yourself: Learn that management isn't about getting things done yourself. It's about accomplishing things through others. · Manage a network: Understand how power and influence work in your organization and build a network of mutually beneficial relationships to navigate your company's complex political environment. · Manage a team: Forge a high-performing "we" out of all the "I"s who report to you. Packed with compelling stories and practical guidance, Being the Boss is an indispensable guide for not only first-time managers but all managers seeking to master the most daunting challenges of leadership.

Tim Scarsdale is a mild-mannered accountant, but his life is changed in a big way when he is the victim of a vampire attack. Left to die, Tim wakes to discover that he has been accidentally turned into a vampire. Without his attacker going through the proper planning and preparation, though, Tim becomes a vampire without any supernatural abilities. Desperate to track down the vampire that turned him so that he can convince her to finish the process, he turns to a craigslist ad (you can find anything on Craigslist) for a Professional Vampire Hunter, Rob, to help him track down the wandering vampire. Tim and Rob hit the road together to track down the vampire that turned Tim. As unlikely as it seems, the vampire hunter and the vampire develop a friendship, albeit one that is constantly on shaky ground as Tim tries to keep his vampire status a secret.
