Solid book4 star

It’s will basically teach you how to be nice to people, and give examples of certain principles. If you struggle with people listening to you or liking you, this is a good book. If not, you probably know a majority of the principles taught.45

Decent but overrated3 star

Helpful concepts but some are repetitive or disagree with each other. This book is also based almost entirely on anecdotes or stories - lacking solid data.35

Wonderful book5 star

This book really teaches you a lot of concepts in handling people and resolving conflict. This is an awesome book for those that are not well versed in that area or want to become better at it. The only thing I didn’t like is that there are a lot of grammatical and punctuation errors. I’m not sure if this is from transferring the text from the book to digital text, but it would be nice if it was revised.55
