In some ways, this is just another example of a competent but unexceptional book on how to succeed in the office. Understand your fellow employee, work hard but don't be a workaholic, know the line between private and business matters.
Where the book stands out is in its clear and careful description of the prerogatives of a boss, or as Eisaguirre calls it, "The Employer's Bill of Rights."
Here are a couple of sentences that you won't see in most 21st-century business books: "As long as what you're asking your employees to do isn't illegal, immoral, or unethical, they must do what you ask. Otherwise, it's insubordination."
The author does not recommend authoritarianism but does make it clear that from a legal, moral, and practical point of view, the "boss" has significant prerogatives. Both bosses and non-bosses need to understand this.
