Format:Paperback
This book deserves a better review than the ones posted so far. It has not gone through nine revisions for nothing. That's normally an indication that the authors are experts in their field who have been at it for a very long time and are constantly updating their recommendations based on clinical experience and research. Which is true in this case. This is well-known as an authoritative text on assertiveness training by evidence-based practitioners but it's written as a self-help book so that therapists can issue it to clients and it can be used by the public straight from the shelf. It's head and shoulders above many of the other books that abound, largely because of the wealth of experience that's gone into writing it. The authors are highly-regarded experts in this specific field. If you go to the US Amazon site and look at reviews of previous editions you'll probably get a more balanced picture of the book's appeal than from the handful of reviews posted here so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Resource on Assertiveness Available 23 Jun 2009
By Bonnie Brody - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a clinical social worker and marriage and family therapist, I have a lot of clients whose primary issue is that they want to be more assertive in their lives. They feel too passive and not in control of their destinies. They are the people who say 'yes' when they want to say 'no', agree to do something for someone else when they are already maxed out, go to a movie they don't want to see because they are afraid of suggesting a different movie that they'd prefer seeing, etc.

Of all the resources available for developing assertiveness skills, 'Your Perfect Right' is the best one I have used. I have utilized it in individual therapy and in groups. I've used it with very high functioning people and with people who have chronic mental illness. It is helpful and pragmatic for every aspect of the population.

It will benefit people who want to work with the book alone and learn assertiveness skills for their daily lives. However, for people who feel that their passivity has already crated more problems than they feel they can contend with, I recommend that they contact a therapist and use this book in conjunction with therapy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Right 26 April 2009
By Viper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
While reading this book, I became more aware of myself. Not only my attitude, behavior, just my over all thinking. What I thought and felt about situations, I looked at them in a different light. I am a person that used anger to be assertive, now I am able to re-evalute things and look at them before exploding. Now I handle situations very calmly.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Book Is Way Too Nice 28 Oct 2010
By Rydia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is supposed to be about assertiveness, but there is very little helpful information for the unassertive wimps among us. Instead the book concentrates on telling us to "be nice". We are already too nice or we wouldn't need these books. A much better book is "When I Say No I Feel Guilty". It gives you some useful tools to stop people from walking on you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helping people to speak for themselves 8 Feb 2012
By Kenneth A. Weene - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a therapist I have used this book and its predecessor many times to help marriage counseling clients understand how to better communicate. I have also used it as an optional self-help text in psych classes and with individual clients who have had problems dealing authentically with the world. It is an excellent aid for one and all.
