Unfortunately, the world is full of screwed-up people. But the good news, says Elizabeth Brown, is that your world no longer has to revolve around them. With brilliant insights and a keen sense of humor, this trusted author and sought-after speaker shows readers how to:
• stop the power of whatever is eating them alive
• productively respond when confronted
• remain poised and in control when everyone around them loses it
• win fairly in unfair battles
• let go of what has been, or what they wish would be, and live triumphantly now
Dozens of real-life success stories, brief diagnostic tests, and practical tools are included to help readers assess their own situations and gain confidence to change self-defeating behaviors. This popular word-of-mouth bestseller now has an updated look.

This book is fantastic. If you want to center yourself and see that you are not always the problem, don't have to be the fixer of every situation in life, and learn to trust and relax in knowing that God will take care of you and them, this is the book to read. It's helped me to see that I can't always solve the problems and I'm not always the problem to someone else. The faith chapter is the greatest. It helped me in seeing that God is there and I'm not alone.

This has become a required reading for our family. The author's idea that, 'it only takes one' to change a relationship is our keystone to success.

Loved this book. It is real and realistically hits every corner of anyones life; no matter what the situation. I find that anyone reading this book can use it as a guide, a foundation to living and understanding life and others around them. Reading this book, helped me to get a better understanding of myself and others that I interact with, how I interact with them and how much influence a simple word, action can truly make a difference in my life and others.

This book gives me hope. It also provides practical tools to use in a relationship with difficult, irrational and volitile people. I have bought copies for friends who are at the end of the line with certain family members or co-workers. You can survive and actually be able to remain calm in a conflict.
