Publisher's Summary

How do terrible leaders become so incompetent? Have you ever had a boss that made you wonder how they ever got promoted when they are inept? Have you ever seen someone hired to lead an organization and they left it far worse than they found it? How did they become so poor with their leadership and management skills?

In this hilarious and entertaining satire, we learn that terrible leaders and managers might have actually gone to school to learn how to be poor at leading employees and managing organizations.

Unlike your traditional leadership and management books, this humorous story line follows Michael Purcell, a student who has been admitted to a graduate program at a prestigious university known for producing terrible leaders and managers. It is Michael's desire to actually become an awful leader and manager that destroys morale, gossips with employees, micromanages, and disciplines his employees in public. Follow Michael through 11 different classes in his graduate program where unique and notable professors teach terrible leadership and management traits to the future corporate and government bosses who aspire to wreak havoc and trample on others.

Through the telling of Michael's story, you actually learn what not to do if you wish to become an outstanding leader and manager.
