Certain people seem to exist to make us miserable. Glass, a California "communications expert," terms these terrors Toxic People and identifies 30 types, some with humorous labels such as the Smiling Two-Faced Sneaky Back-Stabber and the Eddie Haskell. She provides a Toxic People Quiz to help readers identify which category a suspect toxic terror falls into and suggests 10 techniques to handle these folk: Humor, Direct Confront, Calm Questioning, Give-Them-Hell-and-Yell, Love and Kindness, Vicarious Fantasy, etc. And since we're all toxic, to some degree, a section on Toxic Comments and a Toxic Image Inventory are offered to help readers identify their own destructive behaviors. While the book doesn't rise above pop psychology, it is entertaining. Author tour.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has to deal with "difficult" people in their lives whether they be family or friends.
It was most helpful for the serious, accurate and many times 'funny' descriptions
of 'toxic people' that BUG everyone... but what's more, the author TELLS US 'WHAT THE HECK'
TO "DO" ABOUT THEM! I have given several away to friends and family that have had
some really bad and scarring experiences, as I have had, and just the fact that 'others'
have suffered from these 'misfits' is a comfort. Dr Lillian Glass also holds out the possibility
of working through difficult personalities... as well as shows the 'Emotional Refrigerator,'
'The Meddler', and the 'Control Freak' in colorful and living detail and further
describes which you can deal with... or in the case of the "Emotional Refrigerator'...
there is very little hope of having a satisfactory outcome... and time to say 'good-bye
without guilt'. Loved this book. Thank you Dr. Glass.
