This book was a very quick read and comprehensive as well. It has come at a time when I was actually having a struggle in the workplace. It not only gave good advice as to how to communicate with my boss but how she could communicate with me more effectively.

The book was laid out pretty well and the contents make it easy for quick reference. I could pick a strategy and go quickly to it without having to read the whole book again. This is certainly a nice little reference book to have

Most of the strategies can be useful for anyone sometime or other, but will be most helpful for people who have to manage or lead other people, and the more people you have to deal with, the more helpful you find
