Hay un momento que toca las diferencias sexuales que me ha recordado al nefasto y repleto de tópicos "Las mujeres son de Venus y los hombres de Marte". ODIO ese libro. Me repugna. Vomito bilis al recordarlo.
Por suerte en este caso, se trata de cuatro páginas. Directo al grano, divertido, consejos a tutiplen, sin magufadas o chorradas espirituales/sectarias... ¡Incluso sale un Patrick de ejemplo! ¡Así uno se siente identificado, claro!
Muy gracioso el caso de una alumna de la de la autora con bloc

Very interesting book with good tips... but maybe difficult to use at first! But will surely try, are good inputs... try and have as least conflicts as possible and not compete with everyone for everything, be a bit more conscious etc. Also fun and funny to read, she is also critical to herself. (the author).

It was ok.
The kind of verbal attacks the author writes about are very much on the extreme side - insults, personal attacks, etc. Luckily not really something that happens too much in my life, so nothing that really constitutes a problem for me.

Encantado de encontrar un libro con buenos ejemplos y respuestas muy variadas que se adaptan a la situación vergonzosa que te encuentras. Realmente vas a disfrutar una vez que entiendas el concepto de DEJAR DE TENER LA RAZON y CAMBIAR FORZOSAMENTE A LAS PERSONAS...

RECOMENDADÍSIMO!!!

Excellent little book, that probably needs to be re-read every once in a while, and whose prime merit is, imho, of making you feel less alone and/or like one of those 'esprit d'escalier' fools when you decide not to react to verbal provocation.

No explica nada que yo no haya aprendido por la vía difícil. Sin embargo lo recomiendo para todo el mundo que tenga la mala suerte de trabajar de cara al público (especialmente vía telefónica).
Así os ahorraréis el tener que haceros un traje de teflón (para que os resbale todo).
