    more from this reviewer

    This is a great book for anyone who deals with other people; at work, at home, or anywhere. It will boost your relationships as well as your self confidence. There is a reason that some people work better with others. Here is the real secret.

    I am an R.N. and a mother of seven kids. I enjoy being a mom. I am always looking for better ways to inspire my kids and help them achieve a successful and happy life. I first purchased this book for them. While on vacation with my husband about a year ago, I read this book for the first time. On this trip, my husband received some distressed phone calls from his office manager. She was receiving a lot of negative feedback from other employees and another doctor that worked in the office. She was just trying to make the office work better. My husband would tell me about the problems as they occurred. Since I was reading "Make Peace with Anyone" I would tell him what Dr. Lieberman had to say that could remedy the problems as they unfolded. He became interested and read many of the chapters. Needless to say, he thought that the advice it gave was perfect for the situation, and we gave a copy to his office manager. She also loved it, and the problems in the office were solved without difficulty. She has not had any more bumps like that since. There have been difficult personel, but nothing that she could not handle.

    On a more personal note, this book has helped me with my children, my husband, and the concepts have helped me know just what to say to friends and family who share their frustrations. It has given me confidence to know that I am on the right track. I can be positive about my behavior. I've had friends who have shared difficulties and asked for advice. One, in particular, asked many questions about this book. She wanted to borrow mine, so I bought her her own copy; I didn't want to lose mine. As a nurse, I deal with every kind of personality. The concepts taught in this book have given me the confidence I need to work with and take care of each kind.

    The best thing about the book is that it uses a positive approach. The chapters are short and specific. You can look up a specific senario, or just enjoy the read as it gives you the informataion on how to be a great people person. It has given me the skills I needed to have in solving conflicts that arise in my home; as 7 children grow up, in an easy non-confrontational way. I'm not saying it doesn't take work, it does; but, I have a great data base to rely on that works. I also really liked the final chapters of the book that teach you how to deal with really difficult people. We all have at least one of those who has crossed out path. It helps to know what you can do to work with someone who makes it difficult. Don't just take conflict, or other dirty tricks. Do something about it in a way that works.

    Sometimes people are difficult because they are just different. They just don't do things the same way that you would expect. Maybe it would be easier to work with them if we changed our approach. I love this book because it doesn't focus on changing what you can not change; the other person. It focuses on what you can do to "Make Peace with Anyone." I think this is a must have book for everyone.

    Make Peace with Anyone-Liberman

    An outstanding book on dealing with people problems effectively and without offending.
    Making a strong impression without making an enemy is the best solution to problem people. This should be a required course in every College freshman class///

    Very thought provoking!

    This book contains a lot of insights into people's egos and how to use that information to bring them around to your way of thinking. I can really see how the techniques explained in the book would work. I have a problem with some aspects of it. First of all, is it really moral to use false flattery and similar techniques to gain some control over another person? Second, as a person trained in behavior modification techniques, I can see many instances when the actions advocated in this book would "reward" a person for bad behavior, ie giving unfounded criticism. I think it would depend on the personality of the person you are trying to change. I think some egotistical personality types would become even more arogant and abusive with some of these techniques. It was very informative, however, and gave some thought provoking insights into other people's reactions. It made me re-think how I deal with people.

    Manipulation Equals Loss of Integrity

    This is a great book if you want to try to resolve the bumps in your own relationship, but using manipulation is not the way. In addition, I strongly disagree with acting as a third party to other people's feuds. Many of these should be left to the professionals, and that suggestion has been omitted. Stick to the old adage 'clean up your own backyard'.
