    You must be joking...

    Follow this book, and America will drop another notch. Precisely why the work force in this country will be overtaken by hard workers from China, India and others..authors like this...spewing out garbarge and teaching our young people the wrong work ethic.

    I didn't know how much I needed this book until I read it!

    Although I have kept the same career for almost twenty years, I have changed bosses almost 16 times and the location of my job was changed one time. I was surprised to experience the same distress and anxiety with each change. This book used examples of real people who faced similar problems. This is not a 'woe is I' type of book. The doctor gently leads the reader to examine why office relationships do or do not work. If you are reading this review, I would predict that you would benefit from this easy to understand book. There are no excuses offered by the doctor or immediate cures. The journey to healthier office relationships is explained through a series of simple steps. This book provided the tools I needed to regain control over my emotions in a pressure-filled workplace.
