The No Asshole Rule

I’ve always believed in the “no asshole rule,” though it isn’t always easy to state in polite company. Still, there is no better way, in one sentence, to sum up a good management practice.

Now there is a book of that title, and Guy Kawasaki has a book review.

I’ve known a couple of executives in my past who would benefit from such a book. Of course, the people who really need 224 pages on this topic are the ones least likely to get the point. If you don’t get the rule in one sentence, a book isn’t going to help.
