“Whether your career is skyrocketing or stagnating, it may be less your doing than you realize. Clinical psychologist Poulter makes the case that even for people many decades past adolescence, their paternal relationship still shapes how they deal with bosses, clients and colleagues—either creating confidence or fostering frustration. Poulter’s self-diagnostic questionnaires let readers locate their own dads’ parenting style on a scale ranging from ‘Compassionate/Mentor’ to ‘Time Bomb,’ while case studies show how to overcome the counterproductive patterns these legacies can leave. Hardheaded types may scoff, but it’s still a thought-provoking exercise for even the most self-made man—or woman.”

“A marvelous handbook which should be mandatory reading for all…. could transfrom a dysfunctional society into a smart, confident, thoughtful people who could actually work and live in harmony with respect and consideration for others. Kudos to Dr. Poulter for his insightful work.”
