How often have you wished you knew how to defuse the difficult people who wreak havoc on your life? Whether it's a neighbor who keeps disturbing your peace, an employer who manipulates you into unpaid overtime, a spouse who criticizes and controls your every move, a colleague who uses scare tactics to intimidate you, or a student who teases your child without mercy, Take the Bully by the Horns will give you real-life strategies stop people from taking advantage of you.
Sam gives an overview of the book:
My books are known for featuring fresh ideas people haven't seen before.
Each book features lots of interesting examples, thought-provoking quotes, laugh-out-loud anecdotes and practical recommendations you can use immediately to reap real-word results. I interview all types of people -- teachers, CEO's, entrepreneurs, moms, psychologists, waiters, taxi drivers -- to find out what challenges they're facing so I can address issues that affect us all.
In the past ten years, thousands of readers have said these books have changed their life because they are a welcomed blend of inspiration, insight and entertainment. Many people read them again and again because they find something "new" they can apply to a situation they're facing at work, at home or in the community.
Katherine Graham of the Washington Post said, "To do what you love and feel that it matters, how could anything be more fun?"
That's how I feel. I feel privileged to do creative work I love that seems to make a difference for people. Hope you pick up one of these books and that it provides value for you.
