This little book is big on information. It's completely relevant to my experience working with the public for 30+ years - and to my own "big ego." I recognize how often my "Information Traffic Cop" directed things to my ego instead of my brain! Now I try to stop and think before that knee-jerk reaction kicks me in the pants...
Don't judge this book by its cover -- on the outside its small, it will fit into a suit jacket's outer pocket...perhaps that where you should keep it! The lessons within however, are quite large and transcend business life. The Little Book on Big Ego is a guide who's lessons should be carried with you as you interact with people throughout your life. The lessons are all quite obvious, once explained in the easy manner in which Joel writes...delivered in the same fashion that your grand father would -- with confidence, humility, efficiency and passion!
So go ahead - it's a worthwhile read, spend a couple of hours and be prepared, the author suggests you'll need to read it twice, which was a wonderful and valuable suggestion. Pay special attention to Chapter A, I would suggest that this is the single most important lesson - enjoy!
I thought this book was just great! There is no excuse not to read this book, less than 200 pages and Epstein's writing style is so easy to relate to. It really helped me to take a step back from potentially negative situations in the work place. Epstein really gets his point across that the first step to dealing with other people's egos, whether at home or at work....or just out interacting with people in general, is learning to control your own ego.
A quick and easy read, Joel Epsteins 'Little Book on Big Ego' is something everyone should read. Epstein eases the reader in by giving common examples of conflict caused by clashing egos and helps the reader to understand that the first step to dealing with someone elses ego is learning to control your own.
