Strange as it may seem, other people are not nearly as committed to our happiness as we are. In fact, sometimes they seem like they're on a mission to make us miserable! There's always that one person. The one who hijacks your emotions and makes you crazy. The one who seems to thrive on drama. If you could just "fix" that person, everything would be better. But we can't fix other people--we can only make choices about ourselves. In this cut-to-the-chase book, communication expert Mike Bechtle shows readers that they don't have to be victims of other people's craziness. With commonsense wisdom and practical advice that can be implemented immediately, Bechtle gives readers a proven strategy to handle crazy people.

More than just offering a set of techniques, Bechtle offers a new perspective that will change readers' lives as they deal with those difficult people who just won't go away.

    The advice in this book is so common-sense, it is ridiculous, yet we do not see things from other's perspectives, but our own, and tend to complicate real easy issues for ourselves. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book, and found each chapter very informative regarding the same problems with people in my own life.

    I definitely recommend this book - a very good read.

    Mike Bechtle in his new book, "People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them the Keys" published by Revell gives us the ability to deal with difficult people.

    From the back cover: You don't have to be controlled by difficult people!

    Strange as it may seem, other people are not nearly as committed to our happiness as we are. In fact, sometimes it seems like they're on a mission to make us miserable! There's always that one person. The one who hijacks our emotions. The one who seems to thrive on drama. If we could just "fix" that person, everything would be better. But we can't fix other people. We can only make choices about ourselves.

    In this cut-to-the-chase book, communication expert Mike Bechtle shows you how to stop being a victim of other people's craziness. With commonsense wisdom and proactive advice that you can put into practice immediately, Bechtle gives you a proven strategy to handle crazy people-and stay sane while doing it.

    There will always be difficult people. But this fresh perspective on dealing with them can change your life-starting today!

    We are not allowed to commit murder so what are we to do when people are trying to drive us crazy? Mike Bechtle has given us to tools we need to deal with these situations in his new book, "People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them the Keys" Eighteen chapters that are divided into five groups: Stuck In A Crazy World, Changing Someone Else, Changing Yourself, Changing Your Environment and Putting It Into Practice. With chapters like, Seven Keys To Unlocking Healthy Relationships and Your Relationship Survival Kit Mr. Bechtle not only gives us topics he gives us examples, lots of examples that we can put into practice - almost immediately. This is a great book. You might want to hold it in a special place on your shelf you might be referring to it again and again. This is also a great book to give as gifts to family and friends. They will think of you every time they put it to use. I recommend it highly.

    The holidays are around the corner and we all know what that means... Oh yes...Dealing with family members and friends around the table,that leaves us feeling consumed more with indigestion than the turkey did.

    Maybe it's the co-worker in the cubicle with you with the strong perfume and that laugh that feels like nails across the blackboard?

    Whichever is the case, one thing tends to be true...they are driving you crazy.

    In his book,"People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them The Keys", readers are treated, with often humorous remarks on dealing with the "crazy" people and situations in their lives.

    There were times, i caught myself laughing and nodding with agreement, as Mike Bechtle, shared insightful observations and tips in dealing with this thing called, social interactions and the craziness, we often find ourselves dealing with on a daily basis.

    With references to Proverbs, the book,"People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them The Keys", is a layman, "I get where you're coming from, book that doesn't talk down and also really connects the reader with common sense approaches to dealing both effectively and in a healthy way with life situations.

    In the chapter, "Don't Sweat the Wrong Stuff", the author shared this small tidbit about negative people ( and don't we seem to know one or spot them a mile away),

    "People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them The Keys"A lot of people get upset at everything that happens around them. They're on a lifelong quest to see the negative in everything,and they appoint themselves the caretaker of everyone else's behavior. That perspective keeps then steeped in drama. ( "People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them The Keys", page 112).

    It's like people have made acting like Eeyore, a career choice, but this is where ,"People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them The Keys",steps in and offers very helpful, down to earth, rational approaches to dealing with those people, driving you crazy.

    Reality is no one is perfect and stressful situations, trying times, enclosed spaces and the holidays seem to bring out the worse and just plain, crazy in people, and ,"People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them The Keys" , really offered real life, rational solutions to both handling and drawing boundaries where it is needed in our lives.

    The book is written by someone who authentically came across that there is no denying people can and will be difficult.

    This is a well thought out book that helps bring about a different perspective on how to deal with those craziness in a a realistic and manageable way.

    What this book isn't about, is a book about abusive situations which is on a whole level by itself and should be reported,of course, to proper authorities at all times and should never be attempted to be dealt with alone.

    This is a book for the relative who takes advantage, the irritating co-worker who is driving you crazy with the same old stories, the mother in law who keeps dropping by at the worse time without calling or maybe Uncle Joe who has a sob story everytime he needs something...whatever is the case,In his book,"People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them The Keys", Mike Bechtle, helps bring a perspective in how not to let people get under our skin as much as we may let them.

    This is a book about gaining control how we react to other people and discovering the power in changing our perspective to how others are reacting or dealing with us.

    Maybe you can eventually have that drama free holiday or day at work you are hoping for or maybe ,"People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them The Keys" can help you get back the keys, that is needed using a cutting to the chase, common sense, proven strategies in not only handling but in staying sane.
