Is there anyone in your life - a relative, boss, friend, or even a lover or spouse - who drives you crazy? Are there people who make you feel inadequate, unworthy, or just plain miserable? If there's someone who's not supportive and does not wish you well, then you've got a "toxic" person in your life.

I gave up halfway through. I always knew that people who wants to be right at all cost, people who don't listen, people who think they're better than you etc etc etc etc are a pain. in the first half I took away absolutely no insights as to how to manage toxic people.

The public domain is under siege, and James Boyle explains why and how we must protect it.
