Having read other books by Dr. Silberman, I was excited to see the latest book PeopleSmart. PeopleSmart provides useful ways to develop interpersonal skills that are essential in the workplace. I gained insight into my own style and the ways I can begin to enhance my interactions with others both in my personal life and professionally. The arrangement of the material made it easy to absorb and immediately apply to my life. The book is a valuable resource given that interpersonal skills are so essential.
Something for Absolutely Everyone

I am a teacher on Communication Skills, and Peoplesmart is the best resource out there. It is well-organized and easy to use. It is not a passive book, but gets the reader actively involved in learning and practicing effective people skills. It's a fabulous resource for the workplace, but also has applications for home and personal relationships. I have never met anyone who couldn't use tips for resolving conflicts, expressing oneself, and influencing others. This book is great on its own, or can be combined with the workshops offered to really bring home these tremendous people skills, communications, and interaction effectivenenss. Everyone should have this resource, not on their shelf, but in their hands!
