About the Book...
One simple experience we all have had is the guy who has his legs out in the aisle and makes it impossible for us to get by. He moans, groans and sighs and makes a big deal out of having to move. And then he makes it known that you are the problem.
Imagine a daily cycle of having to deal with such provoking behaviors that come from your spouse, your co-worker, your boss or someone else with whom you frequently have to associate. Even when you think you are handling things, this kind of irritating behavior from others makes you feel unhappy, frustrated, moody and angry. You feel 'stuck' and powerless in a difficult and altogether unhappy situation.
For those of you who must put up with these miserable wretches each day… Do not fear… help is at hand!
