learn who you are dealing with

What did you like best about Savvy? What did you like least?

I have to admit it took about 4 chapters before I began to understand what the book was talking about, however, the rest of the book was extremely valuable. The idea of being able to identify what personality types that surround and how to approach them is extremely helpful in human relations.

My biggest challenge in putting some of these theories in practice, is that different people seem to be different character traits at different times, regardless this book gives valuable advice on how to deal with these traits once you have spotted them.

To slow and quite doring

What disappointed you about Savvy?

This book was a waste of time. I was never able to get into it and it was unable to find any useful information in the 1st 4 chapters. I never finished the book.
