Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book deals with irrational thinking and unconscious motivation at the office--``because people at work aren't always the rational creatures that other management books talk about.'' The authors cover basic personnel management theory and argue that people's irrational and emotional acts are based on primitive fight, flight, and fright responses--all part of the ``dinosaur brain.'' They identify situations when such behavior is taking place and offer suggestions for what to do when coworkers behave in this manner. Although the basic information may be available in other sources, it is presented clearly and with the right amount of humor in this book. Recommended for all business collections.-- Michael Kathman, St. John's Univ., Collegeville, Minn.
