It's amazing that a book on tape like this should be so necessary in today's world even in the human service and counseling offices. If i'd listened to this previous to my last practicum (internship in a chemical dependency counseling office), i'd likely have survived much better! With no choice in working with/for bullies, how is a normal person able to survive in the workplace? Where do they come from? What is their purpose? How do we stop the onslaught of antagonistically dealt attacks on personal and being set up to fail in the work we're adept at? This is a very good answer! This should be required listening in interpersonal skills courses and probably for anyone going into the workforce who is naive enough to think co-workers are all going to be pleasant to work with and bosses all appreciative of what is done for them. Loved the audio version but the melodious reading does make it a little difficult to not just think more about the analogies in the folk tales than instill the instructions on first listen so this is one to listen to at least twice.
