PAFU People are F*cked Up by Roy Nassau is a non-fiction guide intent on teaching readers “How to recognize and address annoying and irritating behaviors that make you say "What the hell is wrong with you?" Nassau uses an acerbically blunt and spectacularly witty narrative to provide insight on individuals in our sphere who are more likely than not to be complete, absolute morons—including ourselves. This is applicable to one's personal life but the book homes in on the professional side. Broken down into four distinct and interconnected sections, Nassau slaps it all down in one-two-three formatting.  Recognize what a PAFU is, what they do, why they do it, and examples of who they are;  Work PAFU, no explanation necessary;  Impact from PAFU, such as how to destroy your career and run a business into the ground, and  Feedback for PAFU...give it. It needs to be said.
Please do not pretend that you have no idea why I picked this book up. We're all here for the same reason: because Roy Nassau knows how to write a spectacular title. There was exactly a 0% chance of me not demanding PAFU People are F*cked Up for myself and spending an afternoon reading it. What I didn't expect was for it to be more than just a novelty. Nassau is clearly intelligent and a very good writer, which contrary to popular belief, does not usually go hand-in-hand. The information borders on brilliant, especially when Nassau harnesses the power of facts and figures to assert how problematic being an insipid human being can be. For example, the interrupter. My mother used to say, “I'm sorry, did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?” Nassau shows us the receipts with the story of Julia, a woman who never actually listens and is just waiting for her turn to talk. Except she doesn't wait. She interrupts over, and over, and over again. As a result, nobody likes Julia and even if her ideas are good, nobody cares. She's a PAFU. Don't be like Julia. Very, very highly recommended!
