I'm not an easy person to get along with and I don't like most people (what can I say, I'm easily annoyed). This book made a lot of sense and I've started to be able to get along better with others. Sometimes you just gotta learn to go with the flow.

I had to read the book for my Communications class, but I'm glad it was assigned to me because it was a great book. Very interested, very in-depth, and very well-written.

A lot of great insight from a Christian perspective, but it is applicable for anyone. Relationships are important. This book helps you understand better your friendships and how to invest in them.
