    This book is about personal success, and how to deal with people who subtly intimidate you. Robert Ringer's books have ideas in them that you won't find in other self-help/business books. He doesn't put spiritual stuff or mythological fluff in his books. His advise is direct, no nonsense, no hype, very insightful. I own a copy of all of his books, despite the fact they are not as easy to come by these days.
