A Grownup Guide to Effective Crankiness: The Crankatsuris Method by Steven Joseph is a fun book that teaches readers how to understand their crankiness and their family members' crankiness, and how to use this trait to create spaces for growth, deeper and more meaningful connections, and acceptance. It is a relevant book from the author who wrote The Last Surviving Dinosaur: The TyrantoCrankaTsuris. He makes the bold claim that humans are descendants of the smallest and most dangerous dinosaur known as the TyrantoCrankaTsuris. Our crankiness can sometimes spill over to family members — kids, spouse, parents, and siblings — and this can create a vicious circle of retaliatory crankiness. In this book, readers will learn to take control of their crankiness, find the best approach in handling the crankiness in others, and a lot more.
This book will appeal to any reader who wants to improve their communication with others, pay attention to how their cranky behaviors can affect those around them, and find the best approach to handle people with excessive crankiness. A Grownup Guide to Effective Crankiness: The Crankatsuris Method is written in a lively, humorous tone that grips the reader right off the bat, and the author has the uncanny ability to recreate scenes from the day-to-day experience of readers, making it easy for them to understand the message of the book and to find compelling resonances in their own lives. Steven Joseph speaks in language that is upbeat and engaging. This is a book with a compelling message and is an effective guide on how to defuse the tensions created by our human clumsiness and crankiness.
