Editorial Reviews

From the Author

After years of working with people in business and personal situations, trying to help make effective change happen, I noticed a theme with difficult relationships. Sometimes when we are struggling in a relationship, everything else in life seems hard to deal with for us. I began to capture the common threads that run between most people and finally taught a graduate course called "Dealing with Difficult People" using my understanding. At the end of the class, students said -- "This should be a required course for everyone in life!" I heard that message and decided to write a book -- so that everyone could access these ideas and use them. One reviewer said, "Everyone on planet earth should read this book!" I hope you enjoy this and find it useful in your own life.

From the Inside Flap

"Humans are strange creatures that are difficult to understand, even if you are one. 'Understanding Other People: The Five Secrets to Human Behavior' is a guide for people who want to better understand these peculiar individuals that they encounter every day. Drawing upon decades of experience, Beverly Flaxington encourages readers to take her advice and apply it where they can. From better empathy to avoiding mistakes, 'Understanding Other People' is truly a valuable read." -- the Midwest Book Review
