Review:

Psychiatrist Redford Williams and historian Virginia Williams turned their hostility workshop into Anger Kills, and Lifeskills is based on a program for improving relationships that they run at Duke University Medical Center. They emphasize that good relationships have physical as well as emotional benefits, lowering stress and increasing resistance to disease. Then, through scientific studies and a variety of exercises, the authors present ways to understand yourself better, communicate more clearly, and emphasize the positive in your interactions with others. There's nothing mysterious in Lifeskills; recommendations include listening attentively, reflecting on information that someone has told you, and asserting what you want in a given situation. Anyone having trouble getting along with others will find Lifeskills to be a useful guide.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Lifeskills

"Lifeskills is a practical manual for physical well-being and healthy relationships through cultivating the basics of emotional intelligence."--Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

"An enormously useful, informative, and empathic guide for refining our
navigational skills as we negotiate the constantly changing and challenging terrain of life. A very valuable, multidimensional resource."--Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., coauthor, Everyday Blessings, and author, Wherever You Go, There You Are
