The May 28, 2007 issue of Fortune has excerpts from Stanley Bing’s new book, Crazy Bosses: Spotting Them, Serving Them, Surviving Them, Collins 2007. He describes various species of crazy bosses: the bully, the paranoid, the narcissist, the wimp, the disaster hunter, etc., and suggest ‘things you can do.’ We have other books to help you deal with a crazy boss or maybe you are the crazy boss and would like to know how others see you?
