Publisher's Summary

Crazy co-workers stressing you out? Here's the solution.

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.

The good news is, it doesn't take two people to change a relationship in the workplace. It takes one - you! Now the best-selling author of Living Successfully with Screwed-Up People offers expert advice to help you not only get along with co-workers who get under your skin but actually succeed at work in spite of them. You'll learn how to be unflappable, imperturbable, and unflustered in every workplace situation.

Practical help with real-life examples

This book was first picked up by my daughter in a bookstore but I was happy to find it on Amazon. Such a practical information that covers a wide range of challenges with a positive focus that really made my day. With over 50 years work experience in a variety of areas, the information is valid. Helped me frame my last decision to leave as necessary. I listened to the entire book and then purchased a hard copy to share with others. Very professional. It helped me consider the work ethics and priorities of younger co-workers from a different point of view. Thank you!
