The CEO is getting another huge bonus, work is piling up due to the hiring freeze, the server's down, and IT isn't answering the phone. The bad economy is making your team completely crazy, and the sales team continues to make promises that they can't keep. But, you have to deliver. Sometimes you have to ask yourself if you're the last sane one left. Am I The Only Sane One Working Here? 101 Solutions for Surviving Office Insanity, written by Albert J. Bernstein, offers the secrets to staying sane in a crazy work environment by providing techniques that will help you rise above the most hair-raising behaviours and the most pessimistic of colleagues.

Business is supposed to be rational and professional. The unfortunate truth is, most companies are totally dysfunctional. On top of that, crazy people are getting in the way - in your way, in their way, and in the way of getting the job done.

Have you ever:

- Worked alongside a nagging micromanager, a brownnoser, pathological liar, narcissist, basket case, or raging hallway maniac?

- Had to give (or receive) a pink slip, or a barely-passing-grade review?

- Handled (or been the subject of) hair-raising gossip?

If so, Am I The Only Sane One Working Here? will help you cut through the crazy, protect yourself, develop secret techniques, and maybe get yourself promoted in the process.

If you're swimming against a strong current of crazy co-workers, you're likely the sole beacon of sanity. You can still manage it by changing your reactions, not their actions. Bernstein's guidance will help you go from puzzled to powerful just by changing your attitude and your understanding of office madness.
