Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a helpful little book for people who deal with conflict in their professional, social, or personal lives or within themselves--that is, everyone. Written by a practicing therapist and a freelance writer in a clear, no-nonsense style that is free of jargon and strong on useful metaphors, the book examines the relationship between power and emotion in a wide variety of interpersonal relationships….Recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates and above; general readers."

"The author gives you some clear revelations concerning conflicts that you will encounter in life; the emotions you will deal with and the why's of feeling as you feel….I enjoyed this work and plan on doing a little more study with this book and some self-examining. I think this book would profit all that take the time to read it and put into practice what is being told to them. An interesting spin, not boring, but very insightful."

Format: Hardcover
I have read countless self-help books; some I have taken to heart and others I have not. This work I found to be very interesting and enlightened me in many ways. The author gives you some clear revelations concerning conflicts that you will encounter in life; the emotions you will deal with and the why's of feeling as you feel.

He explains the concept of the 'power struggles' that we have within ourselves, and how important it is to work to understand them and make the necessary changes.

It is always hard to see ourselves as others see us, our flaws and weaknesses; but with understanding, comes the ability to change.

I enjoyed this work and plan on doing a little more study with this book and some self-examining. I think this book would profit all that take the time to read it and put into practice what is being told them. An interesting spin, not boring, but very insightful.

This is the first book that I've read which establishes the relationship between emotions, power, and conflict. The book is easy to read and understand, and there are many thought-provoking examples and a self-inventory at the end of each chapter, and I found these to be quite helpful. If a person wants to understand conflict, he/she must first understand his/her sense of power and the emotions that we feel motivated by. This book explains these things very well, and I highly recommend it to everyone.

I have read a lot of self-help books in the past and I really enjoyed this one. It has a lot of useful tips to practice in daily life and it really helps you understand how emotions effect your interactions with other people. I finally can consciously identify the emotions I feel when dealing with the people in my life. This has helped to elimate many potential conflicts because I was able to change the outcome. I recommend this book highly.

It's such a great tool to have at my fingertips when trying to solve problems and understand people in my daily life, including my role in it. You don't have to read it chapter by chapter to finally get the information you need. You can find the section that your needing the advice on,read it, and the tools to help you are there. I look forward to more of your books! Thank you

This book is a wonderful eye-opener that gives practical tips which we can learn and apply. I enjoyed the way the book progressed from explaining the basics of how power systems may cause conflicts, and then offered many real-life examples of typical conflicts with suggestions on how they could be resolved. The range of settings was especially helpful, from family situations to at-work environments. The wrap-up, with exercises and explanations, was particularly useful. This book has prompted me to look within and to be more aware of the communications and emotions of others. A great book for those who want to have a better life and better relationships.
