Overview

Each of us knows someone who makes us feel as small as the period at the end of this sentence. When that happens, how many times have you just walked away angry or hurt, only later thinking of what you should have said or done? Maybe you work with such a person. Or live with him? Or confront her every day in the mirror.

Nasty People raise themselves up by putting others down. They are "invalidators," but you can disarm their weapons, using everything from humor to confrontation. With Nasty People, you'll never again be defenseless against office gossips, false friends, know-it-all relatives, or the just plain SOBs. The book includes cogent insights into

  • How nasty people think
  • How to deal with a nasty boss or nasty spouse
  • Who makes a typical "victim" What you can do if you think you're the nasty person
  • How to break the cycle of nastiness
We all know it's impossible for any one person to rid the world of nastiness, but you can stop wringing your hands, tearing your hair, and biting your tongue. Nasty People will help you put an end to being controlled by nasty people so that you can start feeling good again.

I have received this book today at 11 am and actually had a lots of plans for today 'saturday'. Well, I dropped everything and couldn't stop reading until I was through by about 4 pm. Didn't even take a shower..... So far the best day in the last five years! The gained knowledge will certainly help me to deal with one of my colleagues who, as it appears to me, is the mother of all 'invalidators' Thanks Jay Carter

This is simply one of the best books I have ever read in my life. It is short and to the point and if you apply what he says it will save you a lot of heartache. I am now reading this book for the second time, my God it is so right on. It is practical and can be easily understood. Thank God for Jay Carter!

This book is a must read. I have had a problem with a nasty person who drove me to become a nasty person and now I know why. I have shared this book with many friends and they plan on getting their own copy. I plan on sharing it with the nasty person and maybe they will have the same eye opening experience that I have had.

I always said there must be an answer to why people can be just plain awful, and now it all makes sense. This book has the answers and it is a must read, must have, and keep around. Love it!

I wanted to read this book to know why was that so many people are just nasty. I personally liked it, there were lots of information that just opened my eyes. I'm glad i read it and i would recommend it to anyone that has been put down or that you think you've put down people. It'll change the way you look at people, and how to handle them when come across them. change for 2012.

I did not finish this book...as I worked my way through the book I realized I was focused on the wrong perspective....the only way to change the way people react to me is to change myself first...then change my outlook on the people in my life.

I found this book to be a great pick-me-up. The realization that other people, intentionally or unintentionally, as out to make you feel bad is enlightening! Plus, the coping strategies are very helpful. I highly recommend the book to everyone.

I have been on the receiving end of a nasty person. This book is a guide on how you can see the signs and take action before it is too late. Quick and easy read!

As someone who just resigned from a job I liked and needed because of an invalidating boss, I can tell you this book hits the nail on the head. The examples given are exactly what I experienced-almost word for word. How invalidation makes you feel and what can be done about invalidation are also right on. Mr. Carter provides the big picture of how and why people behave badly-particularly the more subtle and undermining things that victims may not recognize. You get the whole forest and not just a tree or two. The book is empowering to the invalidator as well as the invalidated. I am so grateful Jay Carter wrote it and wish I had this information decades ago. It would have saved me so much pain, bewilderment, time, and money. I intend to buy more copies for gifts.
