Publisher's Description

Let's face it. Some people just don't listen, don't care, and aren't willing to compromise. And you probably work with some of them. The incomprehensible supervisor. The person in the next office who chats more than works. The customer who, by the way, isn't always right. For all those co-workers who drive you crazy, there's a solution.

The bestselling author of Living Successfully with Screwed-Up People turns her insightful eye to the workplace, showing readers how they can get along with and work successfully beside the people who drive them up the wall. "It doesn't take two people to change a relationship in the workplace," says Elizabeth B. Brown. "It takes one--me!" Her expert advice will help workers in any profession learn how to be unflappable, imperturbable, and unflustered when dealing with the difficult people in their workplace.

    I always enjoy reading about personality types, character traits and how to get along with people who are different from me so this book held my interest, because it focused on how to improve relationships in the workplace.

    In the appendix, there is a section called The Personality Zoo, which breaks down ten personality types and their traits. I found this very informative and helpful. According to the author, knowing your personality traits is a huge key in being able to get along well with others. Interpersonal relationships suffer, when you try to "fix" someone else, rather than understand what makes them tick. I also enjoyed the chapter on stress absorbers and the authors' suggestions on balancing work life and home life.

    Each chapter ends with some questions for self reflection. There are some vague references to God and spirituality, but this isn't an overly preachy book.
