There is very little meat here. Unless you are just getting started in the world, you won't find anything imponderable in this book. Basic stuff.

The delivery walks a fine line, often stumbling, between corny and light-hearted. The subject isn't one suitable for jokes.

I wanted some serious insight into difficult people---and not just the obviously difficult types like ego maniacs, but people who can't decisions or people who must always be the origin of every new idea.

Rarely do I complete an audio book and then delete it from my computer. If I should ever want to listen again, I'll download it.

saved my job with this audio book

I was literally about to walk out on my job before I downloaded this book. After listening to chapter 4, dealing with difficult bosses, I decided to give it another chance. As soon as my boss blew up at me again, I bit my tongue and remembered Lilley's advice, and in a matter of minutes, I had my bully boss apologizing and going out of his way to be nice to me. I highly recommend this for anyone who's butting heads. It has helped me not only deal with difficult people, but also realize how difficult I can be.
