Yes, if they were having the same difficulty as I have been having. It has helped boost my confidence, and see things from a different perspective.
The realization that I also need to change, and that I am too passive possibly causing some of the (passive) aggressive people in my life to treat me the way that they do.
I don't have a favorite, but I can say that it was helpful to hear some of the stories that I can relate to.
Yes. I often found myself sitting in the car in my garage, after I arrived home from my 40 minute commute, listening to the book until I found a good stopping point.
I enjoyed listening to the narrator's voice. It was very pleasant, and understandable.
Overall, this book was good. It starts with generalities, and ends with them too. But in between there a lot of good examples that help you with practical advice and tactics you can use right away.it was good to read about some of the examples of people that are difficult to deal with, and ways to confront them brother wise work with them to get things done. This is especially true of difficult people on the workplace. I'm not so sure the book to going to any level of detail to truly dealing with an impossible person. Still, a good read.
Found it useful to listen to. A bit repetitive but it brings the point home. Would recommend it.
