Working Successfully with Screwed-Up People by Elizabeth B. Brown

From the Back Cover:

Crazy co-workers stressing you out? Here's the solution. 
Let's face it. Some people just don't listen, don't care, and aren't willing to compromise. And you probably work with some of them. The incomprehensible supervisor. The person in the next office who chats more than works. The customer who, by the way, isn't always right.

The good news is, it doesn't take two people to change a relationship in the workplace. It takes one--you! Now the bestselling author of Living Successfully with Screwed-Up Peopleoffers expert advice to help you not only get along with co-workers who get under your skin but actually succeed at work in spite of them. You'll learn how to be unflappable, imperturbable, and unflustered in every workplace situation.

Less stress at work can start today. So what are you waiting for?

Elizabeth B. Brown is a teacher, a speaker, and the author of the popular Living Successfully with Screwed-Up People. She and her husband live in Tennessee.

My take on this book:
"Working Successfully with Screwed-Up People" deals with a rarely addressed but major problem in the workplace, and that's getting along with the people you work with.We have all had to deal with people that just get on our last nerve, and while these people have the potential to ruin our day, by using the insights and ideas in this book  we can learn how to handle these situations so that we aren't bothered by them. It also focuses on work issues many of us face. 
This book is written in a very down to earth user friendly way. Each chapter ends with insights into what was presented and then several questions for the reader to ponder. I really enjoyed reading this book and came away with some very useful information, such as how to become a better communicator. A great little book that I would recommend to anyone because at some point we are all going to deal with "screwed up" people. 
A complimentary copy of this book was provided in  exchange for an honest review.
"Available May 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group."
