This book is a must read by anyone who feels under-appreciated, stuck in a non-visible position, or supervised in a low-status role. These authors “have been there and done that.” More importantly, they have produced a treasure of wisdom, tools, and techniques based not only on their own remarkable experience but on the science of human relationships. They will inspire and uplift you with their stories and their research-based advice.
