5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful 14 Jan 2013
By M. Wood
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is great book. Very practical and easy to understand. It talks about the different ways of interacting and it helps you to identify how you approach conflict. And you recognise how others work too. It's a very useful self help book and I recommend it highly. I borrowed it from the library initially but was so impressed I bought my own copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book 1 April 2009
Very good book, informative, helpful excercises, perhaps the only slight negative is that it is a little hard going, but if you are training people to be more assertive, it is a good tool to have. Make sure you give yourself time to read through it before you decide how you want to do the exercises. I found it useful and helpful in my field of training.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 2 Mar 2014
By NRich
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book, have recommended it to others and they have not been disappointed. It goes much further than other books that tackle the subject of assertiveness yet often miss the point. It focuses on self expression and looks at the beliefs that prevent us from doing do in a way that preserves the things we care about. Easy to read, simple to understand and it works.

By Lisa
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The author writes in a very down-to-earth way. The book a great practical guide for learning why I have behaved passively in the past and taught me better ways to approach life, people and situations. The techniques are simple but effective. I am very glad I found this book :)
