Our guest Wednesday 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 own 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 live to talk about identifying, outwitting, and disarming the a-holes around you.

Robert Sutton is Professor of Management Science and Engineering and Professor of Organizational Behavior (by courtesy) at Stanford University. His 2007 book The No A$$hole Rule [Indie bookstores|Amazon|Audible] was a New York Times bestseller. His new book is The A$$hole Survival Guide [Indie bookstores|Amazon|Audible].
