The trouble with ebooks is that you can’t flip through them quickly to see how they’re formatted. This is basically a self help coffee table or bathroom reading material for quick bursts of suggestions. It would be better as a page a day calendar or maybe a collection of Instagram posts. Book wise, it’s just a big collection of sound bytes, some meaningful/helpful, but not really my cup of tea when it comes to sitting down to read.

A fun and light-hearted approach to a prickly problem. I found the advice in this book on how to deal with short-tempered people informative and a good reminder of many things I already knew.

Created understanding as a basis for receptiveness to advice. Points from different sections overlap and reinforce points made in focused sections.

Had some good advice, thought this would focus on difficult people, not just those that are difficult sometimes like your spouse or children. Also very high level, unspecific advice.
