12. I am reading it now. One major difference between assholes and bullies are that bullies

 

are basically cowards and need the backing of followers and crash without them. Assholes don't need followers. It's not that they are necessarily braver than bullies but they just don't care about anyone but themselves. They don't necessarily get pleasure out of the pain of others, they just think they are entitled to do what might cause harm to others.

For example, where a bully will drive his pickup in the left lane looking for an opportunity to crowd someone off the road, and take great pleasure from it, maybe reliving it in coming days, the asshole will just drive in the left lane and whenever he decides he needs to, he will crowd you off the road and honestly wonder why you object.

Of course there is cross-overs.

Thanks for the recommendation for the book.
