About the book (from the publisher):

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 or the customer who, by the way, isn’t always right. For all those you come across at work who drive you crazy, there’s a solution.

The title of this book grabbed my attention right away. Who hasn't worked with people who drive us up the wall, or make us think there is no way to get along with them? Elizabeth B. Brown offers practical solutions for figuring out how to work with these people in a loving way, and without losing your mind. I enjoyed reading this book, and I think anyone who works anywhere - so, that would be everybody! - would benefit from reading this, even just to use as a reference guide for the future.
