Currently my academic projects and assignments at school have several problems concerning with human. Working in teams is both interesting and challenging.

Recommends it for: beginners
The book was a bit fluffy at times and offered very basic tips on conversations with difficult people. I did like the frame work of asking "is it me?" followed by practical steps to be more assertive. There are very practical examples, albeit not the most challenging types. A short read but don't expect life altering methods unless you haven't read any of the other kind of conversation skill books.

Reading books like this makes friends and acquaintances nervous. So I'll start by explaining I chose this book because it focuses on the reader, their reactions, their mindsets, their emotions, not on the 'Difficult People'.

A great resource to return to as you meet with the personality types and situations listed. A thoughtful, set of techniques and approaches for both you private and professional life.
