Don't let problem people get to you! Whether it’s a manager who keeps moving the goal posts, an uncooperative colleague, negative friend, or critical family member, some people are just plain hard to get along with. Often, your immediate response is to shrink or sulk, become defensive or attack. But there are smarter moves to make when dealing with difficult people. This book explains how to cope with a range of situations with difficult people and to focus on what you can change.

there are no new things here. Overall the book is a good reminder about how to act in certain tense situations and handle difficult people... but... shares the same old advices one can hear from anyone and anywhere.

Ramayana must rank as one of the most loved and revered books of all time. A part of India's ancient Vedas, it is a beautiful story of romance and adventure. It recounts the history of Rama, said be an incarnation of the Godhead, and his divine consort Sita. Filled with magic and mysticism, it entrances the listener and stirs deeply moving emotions. At the same time its profound spiritual messages leave one feeling uplifted and enriched. This is a novelization of the classic. It contains all the essential narrative of the original Sanskrit poem.

In this intriguing business novel, which illustrates state-of-the-art economic theory, Alex Rogo is a UniCo plant manager whose factory and marriage are failing. To revitalize the plant, he follows piecemeal advice from an elusive former college professor who teaches, for example, that reduction in the efficiency of some plant operations may make the entire operation more productive. Alex's attempts to find the path to profitability and to engage his employees in the struggle involve the listener; and thankfully the authors' economic models.

A young, untested team of problem solvers challenged with saving their company moves from board room to classroom in search of answers - and finds them through lively, open discourse with their innovative professor. This gripping, fast-paced business novel does for project management what Eliyahu M. Goldratt's other novels have done for production and marketing.

Whether you are about to start a brand new career in project management, or you are an existing project manager that is now looking to climb the corporate ladder, this audiobook will teach you how to manage your projects effectively, from beginning to end. The term "project management" is so broad and can be applied to so many aspects of business that a lot of people get confused by it. But don't worry, this audiobook will break it down into bite-size, relevant chunks that you can take away and apply.

the examples and mainly the solutions are quite good. the book is written in a very easy language accessible to everybody including children.
the negative side is that it seems to have been written a bit to fast. some things should have been better elaborated.
overall...it is a bit like fast-food. 😉
