About this product
- DescriptionWhat does it mean for someone to be an asshole? The answer is t obvious, despite the fact that we are often stuck dealing with people for whom there is better name. We try to avoid them, but assholes are everywhere at work, at home, on the road, in the public sphere and we struggle to comprehend why exactly someone should be acting like that. Asshole management begins with asshole understanding. Finally giving us the concepts to discern why assholes disturb us so, philosopher Aaron James presents a provocative theory of the asshole to explain why such people exist, especially in an age of raging narcissism and unbridled capitalism. We get a better sense of when the asshole is best resisted and best igred a better sense of what is, and what is t, worth fighting for.
