Surrounded by Idiots by Thomas Erikson

How to handle anyone life throws at you



Do you ever think you're the only one making any sense?

Have you ever tried to reason with your partner with disastrous results?
Do long, rambling answers drive you crazy?
Does your colleague's abrasive manner get your back up?


You are not alone. After a disastrous meeting with a highly successful entrepreneur, who was convinced he was 'surrounded by idiots', communication expert and bestselling author, Thomas Erikson dedicated himself to understanding how people function and why we often struggle to connect with certain types of people.


Now, ten years later Surrounded by Idiots is an international phenomenon and has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide.


In this simple yet groundbreaking book, Thomas Erikson reveals his method for assessing the personalities of people we communicate with and teaches us how to communicate better. Based on four core personality types (Red, Yellow, Green and Blue), in Surrounded by Idiots, you will begin to understand yourself better, hone communication and social skills, handle conflict with confidence, improve dynamics with your boss and team, and get the best out of the people you deal with and manage.


Packed with 'aha!' and 'oh no!' moments, Surrounded by Idiots will help you understand and influence those around you, even people you currently think are beyond all comprehension. And with a bit of luck you can also be confident that the idiot out there isn't you!
