Author: Steven Joseph

The Last Surviving Dinosaur: The TyrantoCrankaTsuris introduced the kid readers to the tiniest, most dangerous dinosaur on the planet: The TyrantoCrankaTsuris.
All humans descended from this tiny dinosaur-and this follow-up book for adults examines how "crankiness" is part of our nature.
Using good humor throughout, Steven Joseph observes that we typically do not hesitate to pour out our CrankaTsuris all over our spouses, kids, parents, and siblings-and then there can be a CrankaTsuris retaliation. Before you know it, you are in the middle of a CrankaTsuris food fight.
We're all cranky at times, but it's imperative we find a more effective way to be cranky while still making the world a happier place. In this book, learn how to:
- Create space for both your and your family's crankiness - Utilize a fun "team" approach to crankiness - Take steps to avoid being too cranky - Improve communication with friends and family - Handle cranky dinosaurs in your life (including children) - Effectively diagnose and treat the "Common CrankaTsuris"
It’s not just you…it’s your CrankaTsuris bellowing from deep within.

He provides tools and exercises to make room for crankiness in all areas of your life plus so much more. C’mon, unleash your CrankaTsuris and learn how much fun it can be.
