Editorial Reviews

From personal experience and hard research, Deborah Norville has learned that respect is more than a tiny pat on our egos -- much more. For the Inside Edition anchor, its importance wasn't always readily apparent. In fact, she admits being stunned by the results of scientific studies of the benefits of being respected and giving respect. In The Power of Respect, she shares those findings with the candor and ease that have made her such a beloved media figure. Norville describes how an environment of mutual respect can improve performance in the workplace, promote peace at home, and build personal friendship. A compelling case for enhancing an overlooked dimension of living among people.
