Format: Paperback
If you find yourself hating your job, feeling frustrated at work, or you just can't stand someone you work with, give Dinasaur Brains a try. It teaches, with plenty of humor and VERY realistic examples, how to understand what's going on inside those "dinasaur brains" you work with (and your own)

The best book about the social things that happen at work I've read so far. Clearly written, based on the simple principles of 'reptile logic'. I use it as my bible.

Format: Paperback
I first read this book in 1990. Over the years I have given my personal copy to a number of co-workers who were having trouble coping with the workplace. I've had to replace my copy several times because they usually "forgot" to give it back. The chapter on the self-destructive nature of anger has served me well in many situations over the yeas. I consider this book a must for my own library.

Format: Hardcover
The book deals with real life situations at work nobody else in the field dares to touch. The authors attitude towards the tough issues in organizational behavior is naturalistic, professional, humorous and buzzword free. Compuslory reading, especially for a young professional who wants to underderstand the implicit - and thus the strongest - micro-rules driving corporate life.

Aspirin for the work headaches April 13 2010
By Nese ISIK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Most of our problems in the work are well associated to the other people.

The concept of dinosaur brain and the lizard logic perfectly explain why colleagues, bosses, clients, etc cost us such a hard-time, inefficiencies and countless headaches.

After reading this book, you will not only learn to survive and fight off the dinosaur brains surrounding you but also to recognize your own dinosaur brain and muzzle it to your own advantage.
