The holidays can bring out the worst in people and turn cheer and good tidings into "I saw that first" and "Bah, humbug!" But this season you don't have to get scrooged by other people's bad behavior. Don't Get Scrooged will show you how to avoid, appease, and even win over the Scrooges who haunt your holidays. Whether it's the salesclerk who ignores you, the unnaturally irritable boss, or the in-laws who invite themselves for a two-week stay at your house, you will always need to deal with Scrooges, grumps, and uninvited guests. Learning to handle them whenever and wherever they appear is not just optional, it's essential.
Bestselling author Richard Carlson's Don't Get Scrooged offers fifty practical and entertaining solutions to the problem of Scrooges, in whatever form they take. During the holidays this year, win the battle against bad behavior, and make your season merry again.
