How to Deal with Difficult People: 10/17/07
How to Deal with Difficult People is outside my usual range of books but it was sitting in a box of books I'm slowly registering to release through BookCrossing. This book is a slim self-help book with a heavy dose of bible thumping (see chapter 8 "Jesus").
The first seven chapters do have some practical advice. Difficult people, the book teaches, can't be changed. One can only change oneself. In these early chapters there is mention of pastors and church but they are among a number of other examples.
Then chapter 8 changes the entire tone of the book from bland but practical advice to down right creepy. Chapter 8 is nothing more than a poorly written sermon in the guise of self help.
