Here is my review of this insightful and entertaining read:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Elizabeth Brown and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Working Successfully with Screwed Up People" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

Are you ready to change the stress level at your office? Elizabeth Brown’s “Working Successfully with Screwed-Up People” is an entertaining and educational look at the people you encounter in your workplace – and in your mirror! This self-help book is an absolute must read for anyone who wants to see a change in their work relationships. The author plainly says that it only takes one person to change a relationship, and that person can be you!

This book is not just entertaining and informative. There are many helps throughout the volume that the reader can use to truly improve their work life. Each chapter closes with a list of valuable insights that can be applied to yourself, your environment and your work relationships to reap tangible benefits right away. There is also a list of questions that can help you assess yourself, your workplace and your workmates. There is a terrific personality overview in one of the appendices that lists personality traits and the sorts of occupations their personalities are best suited to.
