THE BOOK

GQ (Australia) - - GQ INC. - TAMING TOXIC PEO­PLE, $32.99; MACMILLAN AUS­TRALIA

Psy­chopaths, we re­cently read, drink G&T and black cof­fee. It’s to do with a yearn­ing for bit­ter­ness, ac­cord­ing to some uni boffins. Well, in that case – there’s a wealth of them work­ing around us on a daily ba­sis, which is why this new tome from David Gille­spie comes in handy – out­ing ways to iden­tify those who too eas­ily in­fil­trate or­gan­i­sa­tions and af­fect a work­place, and of­fer­ing ways to deal with toxic types who are often at­tached to po­si­tions of power.
