Publisher's Summary

Coping with Annoying People - Learn How to Deal with Difficult People in Healthy Ways

Are you emotionally exhausted from trying to cope with someone who is hard to get along with? Do you find yourself obsessing over someone's negative behaviors to the point of losing your own peace of mind? Are you caught in a vicious cycle of arguing and fighting with someone regularly?

The ideas presented in this book have helped countless thousands of frustrated people learn how to stop letting the poor behavior of others ruin their lives.

This Book About Difficult People Will Teach You How to Deal With:

  • Arrogant people
  • Ignorant people
  • Selfish people
  • Lazy people
  • Careless and reckless people
  • Dramatic people
  • Chronic negativity

Tips from This Book About Coping with Difficult People

  • Dealing with Ignorance
    • Avoid arguing with them. Ignorant people tend to debate certain points without knowing anything substantial about the topic at hand. Try not to fall into the trap of an argument that won't really go anywhere.
    • Force yourself to interact positively. Though you may not be feeling particularly nice, remember that you should not resort to rudeness or hostility. Extend your patience and be kind at all times, no matter how you're really feeling.
    • Don't take their ignorance as a personal insult. If anything, ignorance is simply a sign of laziness on the part of the person you're speaking with. Taking their ignorance personally will only result in frustration, stress and anger.
  • Dealing With Selfishness
    • Set boundaries. While this may cause tension or conflict, it's important that boundaries be made clear.

Get this book now. You will be glad you did.

    Story
    "It's not all about them"

    Probably the best takeaway from this book was understanding there isn't anything I can do to control how other people are. I can work to understand where they're coming from, but they are who they are and I am who I am.

    Once you understand that, you can either accept it and move on, or dwell on it and let it keep bothering you. One of those options is going to make you a lot happier than the other.

    "Don't be difficult"
    What made the experience of listening to How to Cope with Difficult People the most enjoyable?

    Learning its a little bit of you and a good chunk of the other person when it comes to dealing with people. Some people are difficult, but you need to know where they might be coming from and how to handle that.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No characters, just me and the narrator learning.


    What does JC Anonymous bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Someone actually saying it out loud. Sometimes you don't believe it until you hear it.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from How to Cope with Difficult People?

    How to get along with people. You see, I AM the difficult person, so maybe if I knew what people were doing to get along with me, I will be able to change my ways.

    "How to work well with others!"
    Would you listen to How to Cope with Difficult People again? Why?

    Yes, it might come in handy when you find yourself dealing with people that aren't easy to get along with.


    What other book might you compare How to Cope with Difficult People to and why?

    I am unsure of any books that revolve around dealing with difficult people.


    Have you listened to any of JC Anonymous’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This one is quite emphatic, where others are not as much. It was rather entertaining however, due to the fact that some parts of the book were designed to be dramatic.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Play well with others!


    Any additional comments?

    This book can come in handy whenever you are having trouble dealing with people. It happens to all of us, and you have to learn how to get along with others, even when they get on your nerves.

    Story
    "Self Help Book Ideal for Companies"
    Would you try another book from Al Mentoring and/or JC Anonymous?

    Yes. Mentoring’s self-help book is easily organized, and is a quick, helpful read for anyone looking to resolve difficult personal or work relationships. Geared toward managers and team members, this book could provide a quick activity at company meetings. Conversely, it can be read on personal terms, on a walk, at the gym, or in during a commute.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Al Mentoring? Why or why not?

    Yes. The author analyzes several personality types, including lazy, arrogant, ignorant, negative, and dramatic. He gives substantial cause-and-effect examples of interactions with toxic people, and then provides tips on how to cope with their presence in the workplace or in a social setting. Mentoring gives useful advice on how to overcome these undesirable personality types by observing their behavior objectively. The author uses hypothetical situations to give objective advice to keep the situation positive and healthy for all parties involved.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by JC Anonymous?

    The content of the book is easily consumed; however, at times the narrator is difficult to understand. He speaks clearly but without flow. Once accustomed to the narrator’s way of reading, his diction becomes easier to understand, along with the content.


    Did How to Cope with Difficult People inspire you to do anything?

    Mentoring's insights have inspired me to pay more attention to personalities in my work and social life that may be harming my own mental health.

    "Not helpful enough"

    This book outlines the difference of many difficult people but it doesn't fully address ways and strategies of dealing with the issues. It gives a brief idea how to manage, it doesn't look at the issues raised in a 360 degree way.
    The narrator talks so fast, and doesn't pause between each issue which makes it difficult to digest what has been said.
    I've come away feeling frustrated because I do want to deal with negative people in a proactive way but this book hasn't assisted.
