it was amazing

This book is full of tips that are applicable to the real world, five stars.
The End.

Most books like this I hate. They spend forever making me do 50-pages silly tests telling me whether I am this or that, then they spend forever again explaining to me how I supposedly work, what problems I have, how my brain works (including the strictly medical stuff) etc. etc. (Oh, I almost forgot to mention the articles/books that strongly propagate for which of intro/extro is the better. Yuck! It just is.)
This book has a few of those, except the propaganda, but combines it with everyday examples I can relate to, and tips on how to handle them! Yes! Thank you! (If anyone has read a similar book, please tell me)
One example: Wear a different jewellery which draws the eye so you can speak about it.
One other: Take a breather! Go to the toilet, go outside for a break and come back again instead of running away every time it gets to be too much.
This book has not only come up with a few quirks I never really noticed I had (black outs), but it has provided me with coping strategies that helps me in everyday life. Some of them are obvious (like the take a break one) but things I still somehow have not thought of 0_o
