Book Review - "Working Successfully with Screwed-Up People"

There will always be some kind of conflict when working with other people; however it does not always need to be a major stressful incident day after day. Elizabeth B. Brown's new book, "Working Successfully with Screwed-Up People," will help each of us to feel less stressed at work and in general with our interactions with others.  It can be so easy to point the finger to others and place the whole blame on someone other than one's self.  Brown encourages each of us to look at ourselves and makes change how we can and that is changing ourselves.  She devotes an entire chapter to the point that each of us choosing our own behavior, that is our choice and an area that we can makes changes in. 

I love the organization of this book!  It is split into several chapters and each chapter has well-defined section.  Each chapter concludes with a list of insights and also questions allowing the reader to really apply the information to his or her own life and encourages really thinking about the information and making changes.  The book is very thought-provoking and you will really think about your own life and how you can make changes within yourself and your behaviors, words and actions to make interactions with others less stressful.  An interesting, thought-provoking read for everyone!
