    A gift from a team member to celebrate my promotion, she was less impressed when I took some of the book s suggestions to heart and tried to actually implement themThe books is a slightly less than serious guide for people managers The key underlying theme is that demotivated staff are less likely to leave the company, cause trouble or challenge for your position in the hierarchy.My favourite suggestion was to always carry a bottle of anti bac with you and use it to wash your hands immediately after shaking hands with anybody lower than yourself in the organisation.The book even comes with a second cover to make it look like a proper management guide book so your employees don t realise where you re getting all your good management skills from

    This is a tongue in cheek book for EXECUTIVES It is very, very funny.I thought, until I realized it is the same management style of my corporate master..which then depressed me terribly.but, it s STILL an incredibly funny book despite the dry, deadpan style It even comes with TWO covers.one is a cloaking devise depicting a fake book.so employees do not see the real cover and revolt The author is a Ph.D and has left the halls of academe to run his own business www.despair.com which you have to check out

    I ve had the misfortune of encountering a number of these sure fire demotivational techniques at one time or another and this is the ultimate how to guide if you want to make your employees feel devalued, sap their creativity, make every day feel like a wet and grey Monday, and generally foster a complete disregard for their wellbeing.In all seriousness, though, this book makes the point very effectively it s not that hard to demotivate someone but it can be much harder to turn it around The parody style of the book makes it entertaining and funny but also slams home, in no uncertain terms, the things every good manager must avoid and the repercussions if they don t.Incredibly effective.

    This book is just too much fun This is a reread, by the way It takes the basic premise of demotivation and runs with it, explaining just how one can go about converting one s workforce into mindless drones who understand their place in the world all too well And it does so in the form of an academic treatise, complete with excellent APA style In my last management position I used to keep this book and a biography of Vlad the Impaler on my desk, claiming to use both as management style references My team loved it

    Allegedly written by despair.com CEO Satire is not captivating enough to thoroughly stick with it through 225 pages.
