From the Back Cover
21 Dirty Tricks at Work is about lies. The type of underhand, pernicious and downright Machiavellian scheming that goes on in our businesses every day. An estimated £7.8bn is lost each year in the UK alone though unnecessary and counter-productive office politicking. But 21 Dirty Tricks at Work is also a book of hope. The mission statement of the authors is to expose these behaviours and provide practical, workable tools for the vast majority who want to do a good day’s work.
21 Dirty Tricks at Work provides you with all the information you need to spot negative tactics and self-interested strategies. It also shows you how to spot the games frequently being played and how to come out with your credibility intact and your sanity preserved.
So, if you are fed-up of constant back-biting, skulduggery and unscrupulous behaviour of your colleagues and workmates, join hands with the authors for the no-nonsense antidote for everyday politicking. It’s time to get Machiavelli on the run..!See all Product Description

But I bought a bunch of books and most were creepy and some had simply bad advice but this one funny and totally true!
I saw #14 and it was all clear, and so simple!
I just got #14'd again, and I remembered, #14 is a mediocre trick, and it usually backfires unless the victim is completely naive, like I was, and simply crumbles under the attack. If I recall correctly the author says that the purpose is to undermine the victim's confidence. I can't think of any other thing that could have possibly been accomplished in both cases, except of course the creep gets to vent. So I kinda didn't blink this time around.
I'm sorta spreading the word about what a nut job the boss is, "Yeah, she just told me that she hates working with me, go figure, doesn't that suck?" and she just made it a lot easier for me to transfer to another project with a boss who actually likes people for having opinions.
And I am buying another copy because I've given the last one away and I want to buy two because I know a colleague who could use some good advice!
It's funny. Buy three copies.
