I must admit one of my favorite books that just makes so much common sense is Robert Sutton’s The No Asshole Rule. Even if you don’t agree with the choice of vocabulary, the book is exceedingly well researched, and is written by a Stanford business school professor. Some of the basic premises, like how jerks will simply hire more jerks if in authority positions, are proven anecdotally and scientifically. And the case studies, well, they are either hilarious or so true that you’ll cry.
