Do you know people who try to intimidate you? Or who waffle about decisions? Do you ever get tired of hearing, "That won't work," or "It's not my fault"? Now devotees of Brinkman and Kirschner's seminars and tapes can enjoy their insights in book form, while new fans discover the duo's tested techniques for bringing out the best in people at their worst. With wit and wisdom, the authors identify the 10 types of difficult people on the job-including tanks, snipers, grenades, know-it-alls, and think-they-know-it-alls. Step by step, they show exactly how to get results with each.

About the Author:

Dr. Rick Brinkman and Dr. Rick Kirschner are naturopathic physicians, professional speakers, and trainers, and the coauthors of the bestselling audio and video tapes How to Deal with Difficult People, which have sold more than 300,000 copies. Since 1980, they have shared their insights with audiences across the nation and around the world through their company, R&R Productions.

From Library Journal:

Whether at work or at home, we all have to deal with people we can't stand to be around. Our challenge is to develop creative ways to handle these difficult people. Brinkman and Kirschner, both doctors of naturopathic medicine and professional speakers, have just made our job easier with this lively guidebook, in which they identify and explore the psychological roots of ten specific behavior patterns that represent normal people at their worst. Realizing that changing oneself is more realistic than changing the behavior of others, the authors provide a variety of communicative skills that we can cultivate in ourselves to turn conflict into cooperation. Finally, Brinkman and Kirschner (How To Handle Difficult People with Tact and Skill, McGraw, 1994) illustrate how to use these skills with each of the ten problem behaviors. While all problem behaviors might not fit nicely into one of their ten categories, the authors do provide a dynamic assortment of interpersonal communication tools for managing most difficult people. Highly recommended for all libraries.
