Got a Crazy-Maker Co-Worker? This May Help

The Angry Smile is a terrific resource when you have a person (or people) in your life that push your buttons and gray your hair. Written in a textbook format with chapter overviews, case study examples, and end of chapter summaries, this teaching guide does not read overtly techie like a textbook. I discovered some very practical helps when dealing with a couple of people who make me feel crazy. I also learned some identifying signs and some warning flags that I had crossed or was ready to cross into the crazy making dance I didn't want to dance.

If you are in management or deal with people on a regular basis this manual could be helpful to you. It's not just for teachers or mental health care workers. Very valuable information, especially if you are plagued with confusion over why one particular person pushes every button you've got and some you didn't know you had.

What did you think of this review?

You are right. We should be. There is something freeing about being able to at least identify the dance steps so if crazy happens it's clearly a choice. : ). Hoping you have a calm and relaxed, crazy-free week.

Thanks so much for your suggestion...I think I definitely need to read this book, I often feel myself going over into the "crazy making dance"! Shouldn't we all be called mental health workers when you think about it?
