Format: Paperback
Just got off a cross-country trip, where I started/finished this week.It's a great "plane book".

In all honesty, wish I had read this some years back at a time when I had a very difficult boss.

It's an easy read with some good, practical suggestions.

There is also a self-assessment component, something I usually dislike, but here I really got into it and found the "results" sometimes surprising (to me).

Even if you don't hate your boss/job, I think it's an interesting read. Also a perfect gift for those friends who are constantly whining about their bosses!

I rate it a 4 out of 5 because, at least for me, it got a bit wordy at the end. If you start skim-reading toward the end, it's a def 5!

I left the corporate world several years ago to escape drudgery

and daily bickering with employees. Now I hold my client's hands instead of my employees!

Ms. Jansen's no nonsense approach to dealing with difficult individuals really resonates with me. Whether you answer to a Board of Directors, or to Yourself, read this book! She asks you to examine YOUR behavior as well. Bravo Julie!!!!

Keep your sense of humor, remain optimistic, breathe & get this book for your or your company's library!!!

Format: Paperback
I was a big fan of Julie Jansen's after reading her first book, "I Don't Know What I Want, But I Know It's Not This." In fact, reading that book at an important juncture in my life helped successfully propel me forward to go back to school for my MFA and to reignite my passion for writing. So I just had to read "You Want Me to Work with Who?" when it came out. There is a real longevity value to this book. It's not trendy or too "today." I think the advice given will apply ten years from now, and I also think it can be applied to a lot of different situations (not just "the office" - in fact, I thought about how helpful this book can be for everything from going back for an MBA or joining the PTO - situations that attract very different personalities!) What I love most about Julie's books are that there is a depth to them. The experience is not just about reading words, but you have the opportunity to do exercises that let you look inside yourself and how the concepts she writes about apply to you and your situations - while giving realistic advice about what to do.
