Round out the summer with one (or more) of these book selections ideal for admins:

•  For those struggling with a toxic workplace ... Toxic Workplace! Managing Toxic Personalities and Their Systems of Power by Mitchell Kusy and Elizabeth Holloway.

The authors take a scientific approach, examining the way toxic bosses and workers cost a business money and morale. Admins may not have the political clout to apply the solutions recommended here, but at least they’ll gain a helpful perspective on a maddening situation.

•  For those seeking empowerment ... Making Peace With Your Office Life by Cindy Glovinsky.

Glovinsky is an administrative as­sistant, licensed psychotherapist and professional organizer, which makes her a credible source for advice about meeting day-to-day challenges.

•  For those looking for another woman’s guidance ... Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire by Mireille Guiliano.

The author of French Women Don’t Get Fat gives us guidance for business life, as well as personal image and entertaining.

•  For those wanting to know what men know ... What Men Don’t Tell Women About Business by Christopher Flett.

If you’re a woman who isn’t getting the same deal as the men you work with, don’t complain; figure out how they do it.

•  For those who feel under-degreed ... Back to School for Grownups by Laura H. Gilbert.

Tips on everything from managing the cost to keeping up in class.
