Tara Parker-Pope at the New York Times wrote about the mental health risks of performance reviews, and the new book Get Rid of the Performance Review by UCLA professor Sam Culbert, one of our Cool Friends.
Another Cool Friend, Bob Sutton, wrote to us saying that his publisher wanted him to do a sequel to his last (prize-winning) book, The No Asshole Rule. However, Bob said, he didn't want to do a sequel to that book. "But," he continued, "the experience of writing it got me very interested in bosses, as they were the main culprits and heroes in most stories I heard, and also, I heard from so many bosses in so many situations about how they not only wanted to be civilized, they wanted to be generally competent." The result? His new book—expect it in September 2010—Good Boss, Bad Boss (or GBBB).
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
