Oh. My. Gosh. I was reading this book and I saw myself and then my children. The absolute best part about this book is it suggests small ways to adjust your interactions with others (if you know their tendency) to help life and/or work flow more smoothly. And the neat thing is that all the suggestions you can also apply to yourself as well. Highly recommended!
