This kaleidoscope of true stories from Elizabeth Fried's research on employee behavior includes actual incidents about employees whose larceny becomes legendary and a few whose sexual exploits do the same. She regales you with a delightful, lively style and tops off each episode with comments by legal and human resources experts who briefly suggest how to cope with these colorful characters. Anyone who has ever supervised people will chuckle as they see glimpses of coworkers living within the pages.

  • Odd Ducks and Nonconformists
  • Flashers and Harassers
  • Tragic Souls
  • Thieves and Embezzlers
  • Overexposed

Mike Hardin, Author, Humorist, Syndicated Columnist

"I read this book several years ago, and, like a juicy novel, could not put it down, or do anything of great importance, until I was finished. Most of the situations were so outrageous and unbelievable, that they would probably be perceived of as total bulls**t to those who do NOT work in H.R. related ares (but we know better!). I was so impressed with the impact of this book, that I requested a copy be purchased for our in-house library. Elizabeth, thanks for writing a riveting book with lessons for all of us H.R. folks."
