I am a self help book "junkie" (Guess, I need help for that!) but anyway, I do struggle with professional anxiety issues when it comes to office politics and being over apologetic in general to authority figures and co-workers who can be at times out of line. This book is the BEST book I have ever read that addresses REAL ISSUES and stresses that arise from dealing with at times ego-centric, power hungry, controlling, backstabbing people and NOT LOSE YOUR SANITY. His mantras that he offers the readers are innovative and at first seem kinda weird but upon using them, ( I am just beginning to feel better about myself and my professional contribution!! already) If you have any issues like this that you are dealing with on this front...Pls Pls READ THIS BOOK!! Best Medicine in Bookform for these type of mental ailments.....It is a Must Read and should be recommended by every therapist worth their Fee.... I currently have a terrific work setting and co workers and management team. but it hasnt always been like that...The book even helps one to see that the problems nor the solutions are outside one's self but ALWAYS internal first beginning with Self perception and self- appreciation even during the most trying and aggravating work situations.
