Wonderful little handbook for interpersonal skills, 12 Nov. 2010
This is a wonderful little handbook for staying centred and empowered in everyday life. It's voice is kindly, intelligent, wise and above all, reliable. Where there's a 'proviso' to a technique it's mentioned! It feels good as a book too; not too light or too heavy and the text is a good size so you can read it in a hurry; the chapter headings are clear, the quotes pithy and relevant. We need anything that can help us through the conflicts in our lives, sensibly, coherently. This book does just that, like a very good friend. It's cheaper than counselling; it's a 'quick fix' for interpersonal skills but with advice that also holds up and weathers well over time. It will keep you going when the weather is bad - I know, I've used it! It works.
