Review

“By giving readers the words and theories, Goulston elevates a good book into a great one.” --Success Magazine



“…most conflicts in the workplace simply involve very difficult people who can make life miserable. Talking to Crazy offers much-needed guidance for those seeking a solution to these all-too-common conflicts.” --Soundview



“This is a great book for managers who know that some situations--a negative review, the announcement of organizational change--can bring out the crazy in anyone.” --Inc.com



“…explains why people act in unreasonable ways, giving insight in to the brain’s natural defense mechanisms and how to recognize an irrational person’s modus operandi.” --Industrial Engineer Magazine



“How can you survive all the cranks and impossible people that you daily have to deal with? Goulston describes their antics and how to deal with them in this delightful self-help book.” --San Francisco Book Review



“Common-sense advice and humor offered by Goulston…sheds light on mental health issues that are not discussed (but definitely experienced) in everyday life, especially in the workplace.” --Small Business Trends



"Finally! The book that helps you deal with irrational, impossible people." --Oprah’s Book Club 2.0



“Psychiatrist and power-blogger Mark Goulston presents the gift of his latest book to anyone who has ever dealt with bullies, whiners, manipulators, or screamers. Oh, wait, that’s all of us.” --Associations Now



"Talking to Crazy is a captivating, accessible guide to the many forms of 'everyday crazy' we face at work and in our personal lives." --TD Magazine



"…we all deal with irrational people and situations. Talking to Crazy contains valuable insights into these types of interactions...an important addition to anyone’s library." --Banking Exchange
