You cannot change other people. It's rare that you can change situations that other people have control over. This book pounds home the fact that you can only change your reaction to the situations and people you encounter.
It's not enough to just know that fact. Knowing it's true and making it work are 2 different things. Solutions are explained in such a way that you can use them. You aren't dependent on how the other people acting or reacting. It's up to you and what you are willing to let go... really let go.
You behave based on what will help you achieve your own goals not on your emotions. And sometimes you just have to suck it up. This situation can't be changed because you are not in charge. Deal with it or leave.
First, it's laugh-out-loud funny. Plus, it's a blast recognizing all the dysfunctions of your office. (I got the feeling Bernstein followed me around for a week before writing it.) Finally, Dr. Bernstein goes where Dilbert can't: to solutions.
This book would make a FABULOUS gift for graduates entering the work force. They'll love you for it.
Dr. Bernstein is no armchair philosopher and its clear that he has a firm grasp on what he is talking about. Its a rare find, somone who can teach, and knows what the heck they are talking about. That is what we have here. Dr. Bernstein offers us not just a book but a new lifestyle at work. Like Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond Tiger Woods or anyone else who is great at what they do this man has truly found his calling and it shows. - C.Hall
This is a an enjoyable read, one that can be read in short periods without losing the overall flow since each survival situation stands on it's own. Al's experience and inate sense of humor have produced an insightful reference guide.
