"I read your book and I must say, it’s helping me a lot at my work place especially how not to stress myself too much. I've written down some points that will help me not only at work but also with my daily life. I recommended it to a few friends to get on Amazon."

Office Administrator, Touchstone Educational Solutions Ltd; London, UK

"'Don't Run Naked Through The Office' provides a great guide on how to leverage more control in any workplace environment. Badly needed advice!"

Director Global Accounts, Xerox; New York, NY

"Thank you for the most honest and comprehensive book on avoiding the pitfalls and gaining understanding into the psyche of bosses. This is a 'how to' not only survive but raise above the discord and toxic situations."

Human Resources Management & Diversity Consultant, M.H. Cavazos & Associates; Houston, TX

"This book armed me with knowledge on how to handle tricky situations in the work place. I really feel like these chapters were tailored just for me and I wish I had laid my hands on this book years ago so I could have maybe handled my situations better."

Logistics Administrator, Mustek Limited; Johannesburg, South Africa

"If only this book was available to me several jobs ago. I have no doubt it would have saved me from repeating the same mistakes as I moved from job to job hoping that things would get better simply by changing the address of my workplace."

Creative Director and Author, Winterlea Studio; Queensland, AUSTRALIA

"Helped me overcome my fears towards moving up the career ladder. I always felt stuck and frustration would keep me from looking clearly at my situation. This book helped me to clear my thoughts and actually put them down on paper about my career path. For once, I was able to see there were possibilities and paths I could take and being stuck was not the only answer. I would recommend this book for anybody!"

CEO, FramedIn3D; Pittsburgh, PA

"I have attended numerous management classes, leadership class, and team logistic classes. Over my 15 years in the US Naval Submarine Force plus 15 years working for state-of-the-art, front-line companies, I have never read a book or attended a class that would help an individual more with work related-issues than this. This will also give a person tools they can take with them and refer back to. I will definitely be using ideas from the book, and the way all the categories were defined I found that to be very useful."

Training & Development Specialist, Phillips 66; Houston, TX

"Great read! Well put together. Great Christmas gift. I like the way the book relates to me working in a professional environment."

HR Management Consultant, Instructor, and Keynote Speaker; Winnipeg, MB CANADA

"Awesome book!"

Clinic Manager, Veterans Memorial Drive Animal Hospital; Houston, TX

"As a business leader, I think that many employees can benefit from this book!"

National Manager, UFS Sales at Unilever; Tel Aviv, ISRAEL

"Great read for all HR folks. First of its kind!"

Sales Specialist, IBM; Dallas, TX

"I really appreciated the detailed explanation you provided of the various work environments readers may encounter - both positive and negative. By better understanding the specific nature of one's work environment readers can better determine the most appropriate response to the challenges they face whether it be a boss who is abusive or merely apathetic. The recommentation to create a Workplace Survival Plan is an invaluable one. One of the most common reasons we encounter as to why an employee continues to work under undesirable conditions is they don't believe there is anything they can do about it. By following the steps outlined to create a Workplace Survival Plan, readers can take a more proactive approach to managing their career, workplace experience, and overall hapiness. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to review your book. Great job on it!"

Organizational Effectiveness Expert, The 2% Factor; St. Catherines, ON CANADA

"I LOVED your book! It put me in the right frame of mind for problem solving. I had a problem and I was completely stuck. I took the weekend to read your book and get my head straight about how to deal with it. IT WORKED! I solved my problem with no trouble at all."

President, Adept Word Management; Houston, TX
