PRAISE FOR GET ALONG WITH EVERYONE
"Rabbi Gruen's book is deep, insightful and practical at the same time. The precision and accuracy of his descriptions of personality types is uncanny, and his insight that unless we understand the nature of the UV personality conflict is inevitable and inescapable, is 100% on the mark. The strategies he recommends are really the only way of defusing conflict."
-Rabbi Dr. Yitzchak Breitowitz, Rav Kehillas Ohr Somayach, Rabbi Emeritus of Woodside Synagogue Silver Spring MD, and former Associate Professor of Law at the University of Maryland

"I found this book very intriguing. It contains a surprisingly simple and practical approach to helping different personalities get along at home, at work and in every relationship. Anyone can benefit from Rabbi Gruen’s positive wisdom, clear explanations and numerous examples—from children and parents, to couples in conflict, to individuals deciding which type of job to take, and more. Rather than fighting to change each other, I agree with his message that we need to accept our personalities and focus more on how to manage our relationships. This book provides many tools to help you do that."
