The title is misleading. This book deals with boss-types, not co-workers. Irrelevant for the non-management people. Describes but not enough content on how to deal with.

HASH(0x971f5d20) out of 5 stars Fantastic Tools with all the Tips you Need! July 22 2013
By Elyse Sims - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because of two Bitches in the offices--Toxics--and was surprised how quickly the book covered how to diffuse their vile behavior. I couldn't believe how spot on the Toxic chapter described my Bitches! With the book's help, I have completely disarmed these nasty women and they now pass me by for easier prey. I wish I had bought this when I first entered the workplace!

HASH(0x99b2d5f4) out of 5 stars More entertaining than helpful May 13 2013
By L - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I work with every type of bitch in the book and it was very entertaining to realize that 'bitch' crossed gender as well as other demographics. Also, it was comforting to know how common this behavior is and how it can really sour a work environment as opposed to it being my 'sensitivity' that is the real problem (which is the response of my superiors). Most of the solutions involve not working with or not being alone with the bitch which aren't really solutions or feasible options.

HASH(0x99b2d4f8) out of 5 stars Kinda like a wine tasting: Really informative and useful, but a bit dry at times July 23 2014
By Jaclyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was a non-fiction book that explained how to deal with difficult women at work (AKA "work b1tches", which I'm going to call WBs from here on out). It first explained what a WB was, then explained the different types of them. Almost half the book was just explaining the different types of WBs, how to recognize them, why they acted the way they did, and suggested tips on how to deal with them. Then the book explained a bit more about personality types and the two main types of decision-makers.

I picked up this book after suffering through one too many run-ins with a WB. I didn't realize the problem was so common, but in Fuller's book, she explains it and it seems to be more commonplace that I initially thought. Even some of the examples of others suffering under a WB totally described me - at a time it got to be so bad that I dreaded going into work and putting up with the behavior, and I would stress out not knowing when I'd be lashed out at again. I became physically sick and would have anxiety attacks and actually be nauseous because of it, and I started to hate my job. I came across this book at the right time because it definitely helped me first to see that it wasn't just me in this situation, but also to understand more about the problem. I thought this book was really helpful to understand the different types of WBs out there, plus I found the tips on how to handle or deal with them really useful - they were tips you can use all the time in your daily life when coming across difficult people, male or female.

Parts of this book were pretty dry and wordy, and I also found it to be a bit repetitive at times. However, this book definitely helped me realize that my situation wasn't out of the ordinary, and I think the more you can understand about a person or a problem, the better prepared you are to deal with it, or maybe the more willing you are when you realize it's not necessarily you. I gave this 3 stars because while it was very helpful, at times it was also just a bit too boring and repetitive. It would be great to go back and skim this book and read only the applicable parts for a specific instance or WB, but reading it straight through from the beginning to the end was a bit of a chore at times.

HASH(0x971f6174) out of 5 stars The 8 Types, What Underlies the Behavior, Case Studies, & Strategies To Help You Deal with The "Bitches" April 6 2013
By Mir - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This psychologist with a 30 year practice undertook a survey of 200 and identified 8 types of "bitches" in the workplace. Here, she outlines the types and their behaviors and how a worker can deal with each.

This book allows you to understand the behavior--and what is behind it--in order to react appropriately.

The types are: Excluder, Insecure, Toxic, Narcissist, Screamer, Liar, Incompetent, Not-A-Bitch

An example of how to respond would be, let's say, providing neutral information source or tips for "The Incompetent", that type that doesn't know how to do the job properly. This type will have you do the work and take credit for it. This type may be arrogant out of defensiveness or perhaps she really does not even fully know the depth of her ignorance. In this case, you can't directly offer the information, which shows off you're smarter or cleverer, as that only points you out as a sure threat and put this type more on the defensive. Instead, you find ways to provide "neutral" sources, such as newspaper articles or someone else (not you) who can provide the needed resources.

The book features clear lists of identifying behaviors for each type and supports it with details from personal cases of women who've experienced these types. These "bitches" may not even know what motivates them, but this psychologist's insights may give you a tool by positing what leads an Excluder to exclude or a Screamer to scream. You may work under one of these types, or you may manage one of these types, and Fuller gives tips in case you are the one who manages a "bitch".

Readable and nicely structured.

If the Bitches or "Not-A-Bitches" at work are making your work life nuts, here is a book that may help.
