About the Book:
The world is filled with difficult people. It is impossible to avoid them. (You may have one, in particular, in your life right now.) In dealing with such people, we often try a number of coping strategies. Unfortunately, our best attempts at making peace often fail. This is because the difficult people in our lives are often what the Bible calls “fools.” And dealing with fools requires a special kind of biblical wisdom.
You’ve tried everything–from confrontation to passivity. You’ve found out what doesn’t work; now discover what does. Gain the tools you need to get along with others and conduct your relationships in a manner that honors God–and preserves your sanity!–in Foolproofing Your Life: Wisdom for Untangling Your Most Difficult Relationships. Learn how new insights from the book of Proverbs can help you respond to those relationships that seem hard to untangle.

My Review:
Awesome! That is how I think of this book. Jan really knows how to put “fools” into perspective. If you have that one nagging “fool” in your life, grab a copy of Jan’s powerful little book. Through Bible verses, personal experiences and examples, you can learn an effective and Godly way to “foolproof” your life.
I am truly glad that I read this book, and have a better understanding of how to handle those nagging “fools” in my life in a way that God would be happy about. I know that you will, too, if you grab a copy of this book today!
5 stars to Jan Silvious!
