I thought this might have some interesting tips, but it wasn't very useful. Nothing new or interesting and not written that well. There are many better books out there about getting along with others. ( )

A little old-fashioned in ideas but all in all informative. I'll be trying a few of these techniques! ( )

This book is a humourus way of dealing with people in a workplace who might be annoying/detrimental to your work. It follows a model based on understanding that person who is annyoing you, then ways to deal with the ten most common unwanted co-workers.

Anyone going into a career that has to deal with co-workers could get something out of this book

This was alright. I am not a huge fan of categorizing people and acting as if what works for one will work for all. And I guess if you need a book to tell you that being compassionate will help you to get along with people, maybe this is something you should check out. ( )

In your repertoire of communication skills, there exists varying degrees of knowledge and ignorance, with their consequent interpersonal strengths and weaknesses. As a result, you may have no trouble at all dealing with that overly or unemotional person whom no one else can stand.
