Publisher Description

Innovative and refreshing strategies for how to love, understand, and communicate with difficult people—at home, at work, and in your community

Most of us know someone who, for whatever reason, always seems to cause problems, irritate others, or incite conflict. Often, these people are a part of our daily lives. The truth is that these troublemakers haven’t necessarily asked to be this way. Sometimes we need to learn new approaches to deal with people who are harder to get along with or love.

How to Hug a Porcupine explains that making peace with others isn’t as tough or terrible as we think it is—especially when you can use an adorable animal analogy and apply it to real-life problems. Whether you want to calm the quills of parents, children, siblings, or strangers, How to Hug a Porcupine provides useful tips for your encounters with “prickly” people, such as:

• Three easy ways to end an argument
• How to spot the porcupine in others
• How to spot the porcupine in ourselves

With a foreword by noted psychotherapist Dr. Debbie Ellis, widow of Dr. Albert Ellis, How to Hug a Porcupine is a truly special book.

Not worth the read

The book only teaches you to be quiet and allow “porcupine people” to step over you to keep the peace.

Simple but needed.

I enjoyed the information and found it helpful. It was presented in an easy to read way.

Not a book

This read like it was a poorly written brochure. There were typos, and it did not feel like a legitimate book. Do not waste your time or money on this.
