What's a good way to minimize bends in a dryer transition duct?

I installed a new clothes dryer yesterday using the laminated foil transition duct the appliance store gave me. In order to get behind the dryer to access the duct, I have to pull the dryer out at least 4 feet from the wall. Then when I push the dryer back to the wall, the duct lays in a twisted heap on the floor with lots of bends that could reduce efficiency and trap lint.

What tips do you have to minimize the number bends in the flexible duct? Or, would you recommend a different type of transition duct?
