Can i give my Boss this.....?

s=r*(theta)

My current employer is a real "Richard" in every sense of the word! Because I am prisoner of my respect for authority (but a greater respect for my self) I wont go into anything else, outside of the fact in my 11 month tenure, we have went thru 8 employees!! with my self resigning it will be 9. I am planning to hand him this on my last day!

is this a good idea or should i just clear out?

If you don't plan on listing this job on your resume', yes, give him this "gift"? 

If, however, you plan to list that job as work experience (allowing the chance that someone might call your old boss for a reference about you), then, no, I'd resist the urge.  Try not to "burn bridges" in your work life--even the unpleasant ones.

Are you certain it's the employer who is the "Richead"?

Be sure to give, "DA Boss" a used version....tattered and torn so he thinks your read it.

Hear is my advice: Don't be cutesy and clever with a book. Just stand up straight, wait for a moment when you two are alone, and say what you want to say without profanity. My guess is that he is an uncollaborative, egotistical lunatic with below average design skills. He is probably unhappily married and his children hate him. Don't make it personal, but keep it tough. If you want lasting satisfaction, record the conversation with your smart phone.

Good luck.

i don't think there is anything wrong with giving the guy a book.  whether he takes it as you trying to help or you being sarcastic is up to him. 

8 people left in 11 months?  there is a fair chance, based only on this, that s=r*Θ is not the problem.

As citizen said: don't burn bridges. This is a tiny profession and you don't wang to make enemies. Just chalk it up as a learning experience and move on.

If you see the guy socially somewhere later, like at a bar, you can have a Come to Jesus talk with him about the reasons you (and a dozen other people) left. But go it in a way that is helpful, not vindictive.

i was thinking, as i am evolving into an architect, it is my duty to add value to the environment. i feel strongly this will be adding value to future employee's as well as my current employer himself going forward.

That is not your duty. Thank him for the opportunity, leave graciously, and if you see him out at a bar or something...tell him it's great to see him, and wish him the very best. The idea of giving him the book makes you look like a fool. Be the better person and act like a mature adult.

oh grow up. don't give him the book.

if you want to get even, sleep with his wife.

i agree with user777.  that would be the high ground.

i think the OP wanted to help his boss though, not get even.

Yeah your boss may be a major dick (we have all worked for them) but don't burn your bridges.
