Robert Sutton is a Professor of Organizational Behavior at Stanford, and his book is a how-to for dealing with the jerks in your life. He says there’s really one word that fits them though: a--holes.

Our guest Tuesday has written a book with a slightly off-color title: The A--hole Survival Guide. Robert Sutton is a Professor of Organizational Behavior at Stanford University, and his book is a how-to for dealing with the jerks in your life. And the problem isn’t just them. Sutton says research shows that if you work with a jerk, there’s a good chance you might become one. Robert Sutton joins Doug to talk about identifying, outwitting, and disarming the a-holes around you. (Rebroadcast)
