The underlying premise of '101 Tough Discussions [sic]' is that if your employees are treated with respect, and workplace guidelines are clearly written and uniformly enforced, many problems can be avoided. But for the times when they can't, the advice in this book will be invaluable. It deserves a prominent pace in the office of anyone who is responsible for managing others. -- Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
