In It's Not Personal, award-winning writer Cindy Hampel shares some of the life-changing lessons she's learned from difficult encounters. Written from a layperson's point of view, the book offers readers practical suggestions and encouraging insights for dealing with difficult behavior. Topics include handling fear and guilt tactics, using resentment and regret as guideposts, staying poised under pressure, communicating more effectively with others, forgiving others as a way to help yourself, and being happy despite difficult encounters. Stories in the book include encounters with a school bully, a cranky neighbor, an arrogant business contact, and a needy elderly parent. The author reveals how the lessons she learned from these encounters freed her to focus again on her own goals instead of the difficult behavior of others. Fully indexed. 130 pages.

Midwest Book Review

"Written for both adults and young adults, It's Not Personal...is filled with good advice. Who hasn't had to deal with bullies, a cranky neighbor, an unpleasant business encounter, and even a demanding elderly parent? Knowing how to deal with them lets you focus on your own goals and push life's common disturbances aside. In the end, it's really up to you." Recommended.
