TRICKY PEOPLE profiles the whole range of 'difficult' types we've all encountered at times in social or business situations: back-stabbers, white-anters, blamers, whingers, bullies, tyrants, controllers, charmers, know-it-alls, perfectionists, competitors and the seriously self-obsessed. It offers imaginative yet practical ways to deal with these dangerous and frustrating creatures and identify the slippery techniques they employ to get their way. Buried cleverly within all the humour is an in-depth look at how difficult people manage us for their own ends - and how to overturn that. It helps us understand relationship patterns, office politics, our own shortcomings in our dealings with others, and what a difficult person might be able to teach us.

In the 21st Century children travel a fine line between innocence and becoming a victim of abuse. Every child has the right to help if they have been hurt, neglected or sexually abused whether they are a boy or a girl, rich or poor or where they live in the world. As an Educator I was inspired by parents of young children placed in my care to create a starting point, a way to approach the subject of bullying and sexual abuse with young children. The book is a resource to be read to children and then for children to read themselves. This book will stimulate questions and discussion to assist children to understand the difference between good and bad feelings, what is right and what is wrong, staying healthy and safe, and the importance of asking for help when they are at risk of harm or sexual abuse. It is important to inform children that abuse can occur anywhere, anytime, and by an adult or a child of any age. I hope the idea of "I'm Boss of my Body" will give children a voice, and that the person they turn to for help will have the strength and ability to advocate on their behalf to keep them safe. Suitable for children 4-7 years of age and over.
