About the Author

Neil J. Lavender, PhD, is professor of psychology at Ocean County College in New Jersey. He specializes in personality, child, and abnormal Psychology. He is co-author of Toxic Coworkers and recipient of four Innovative Developmental Grants. Alan Cavaiola, PhD, is associate professor of psychology at Monmouth University and co-author of Toxic Coworkers.


"Cavaiola and Lavender have done it again! They have given us another perfect combination of psychological science and real-life applications to provide a highly readable guide to living and working with people who drive us crazy. Alive with examples and suggestions, this book is not only perfect for counselors and therapists, but also for anyone who deals with controlling perfectionists at home or on the job."
--Richard Ponton, PhD, associate professor at Georgian Court University in Lakewood, New Jersey

"Impossible to Please is a candid, informative, and thought-provoking study of the controlling perfectionist. Lavender and Cavaiola illuminate our understanding of obsessive-compulsive personality disorder while providing suggested actions for dealing effectively with these individuals at home, at work, and in the community."
--Suzanne D. Mudge, PhD, associate professor and program coordinator of counseling and guidance at Texas A&M University

"After being in managerial and leadership positions for over 40 years, I wish I could say that I never had to deal with a perfectionist personality. Unfortunately, that is not the case. I have had experiences with toxic coworkers and, to say the least, they were indeed troublesome. Drs. Lavender and Cavaiola's first book, Toxic Coworkers, was of great help during these trying times. Like their other books, Impossible to Please is filled with wisdom and insights into this challenging area. I strongly recommend this most practical and applicable book."
--Louis A. Scheidt, PE, PP, president and CEO of Innovative Engineering, Inc.
