5.0 out of 5 stars Systematic, scientific, and to the point, 8 Nov 2006
This review is from: Assertiveness Step by Step (Overcoming Common Problems) (Paperback)
I finished reading about 75% of this book, and I really like it. It is a rather small book, but that could be one of its pros, as it is easy to read and to the point. Although I'm not an expert on the subject or Psychology yet, from past readings & experience, my educated guess is that this book is also scientific and systematic. It makes sense to me and convinces me. The book is not going to be enough on its own to change you from an aggressive or submissive communicator into an assertive and attractive one, but it will help immensely if you read it at least 3 times while taking notes and also practice a lot of what you read. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to change the way they communicate with others, whether you are aggressive & loud, or passive, submissive, and too soft, and would like to hit the elusive moderateness of assertiveness, which respects others enough while also respecting oneself and one's own wishes & needs.

It's easy to read and understand the concepts and to put ideas into action. A very useful book to hold on to and pass around to friends and those who need to get to grips with assertiveness concepts and put into practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book for understanding low assertiveness and givign tools for change, 18 Sep 2014
This review is from: Assertiveness Step by Step (Overcoming Common Problems) (Paperback)
Excellent little book. Of particular help is looking at depth at unhelpful beliefs paired with specific examples of replacement helpful beliefs. The examples are relevant, real-world examples.

Personally, I found the chapter on fears of assertion especially helpful. Many books go straight to suggesting solutions without looking deeply at the thought process/ emotional processes that lead to low assertiveness in the first place.

The book is short but rather dense. More white space would make it physically easier to read, but the content is really good.

This review is from: Assertiveness Step by Step (Overcoming Common Problems) (Paperback)
This book is written in laymans terms which means it can be used to help without it sounding like the helper has read something really complicated but does not understand the root of the intervention.
