Impossible to Please
How to Deal With Perfectionist Coworkers, Controlling Spouses, and Other Incredibly Critical PeopleBook - 2012
"Everyone knows someone who is impossible to please, critical, judgmental, picky, and stubbornly closed-minded. These are symptoms of a disorder called obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD), but it's common for people to have subclinical levels of some or all of these qualities. Impossible to Please, is a manual for dealing with these difficult people without sitting through stressful arguments, and passive-aggressive behaviour. It empowers readers to take charge of the relationship and regain their dignity and confidence in interactions with the individual. This book features specific strategies that are immediately effective when conversing with critical people, through the setting of boundaries, improving communication, and asserting themselves. Readers learn to deal with the impossible to please in romantic relationships, friendships, family, and work relationships."--Publisher's description.
