Summary, Etc. If you're sick of unresolved arguments that never produce useful results, you're not alone. The process of minimizing, deflecting, or avoiding difficult people can leave you brimming with repressed emotions. Benson shows that, properly channeled, conflict can be the most powerful tool we have at our disposal for deepening relationships, solving problems, and coming up with new ideas. Here he explains what makes some arguments productive and others not, and shares critical habits anyone can learn to avoid conflict. -- Adapted from jacket
