Good book

I own both the hard copy book and the audio as sometimes it is easier to find the time to listen rather than read. I purchased it after a bad experience at work, and found the information put the situation into perspective for me. I was able to deal with the situation that allowed me to feel empowered, an not allow others to dictate expectation. This is something everyone regardless of a work/corporate/social/sports environment should read.
