We complain about everything, often neither expecting nor getting meaningful resolutions. Wasting time and energy on unproductive complaints can take an emotional toll on our moods and well-being. Psychotherapist Guy Winch offers practical and psychologically grounded advice on how to determine what to complain about and how to convey our complaints in ways that encourage cooperation and remedies to our dissatisfactions. Whether we're dealing with a rude store clerk, a bureaucrat, a coworker, a friend or family member, complaining constructively can be empowering and can significantly strengthen our personal, familial, and work relationships.

I got more from this book than I was expecting. This will be enjoyed by those who read self help books. It's an interesting and thoughtful look at the reasons we complain so much and a look at whether or not that complaining is effective. A great insight to the ways we interact with people.
