Try out as we may well to stay away from them, assholes are found everywhere—at work, at residence, on the street, and in the public sphere. Encountering one brings about wonderful problems and personalized strain, specifically since we usually can not recognize why precisely somebody should be acting like that.

A lot as Machiavelli illuminated political technique for princes, this book last but not least gives us the concepts to believe or say why assholes disturb us so, and explains why such people seem component of the human social problem, especially in an age of raging narcissism and unbridled capitalism. These concepts are also practically beneficial, as comprehending the asshole we are stuck with aids us feel constructively about how to take care of issues he (and they are mostly all men) presents. We get a far better sense of when the asshole is very best resisted, and when he is very best ignored—a much better sense of what is, and what is not, well worth fighting for.
