5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a must for you if you're feeling overwhelmed about anything., 25 April 2014

This review is from: A Woman in Your Own Right: Assertiveness and You (Kindle Edition)
Learning how to be assertive is a life-saver.

I first read this book some 20 years ago. It quite literally changed my life. I learned how to say what I needed to say at the right time and in the right way. No more misunderstanding, ambiguity, manipulating, martyrdom from myself towards others or them towards me!

I must have bought at least 20 copies since, but I've given them all away during my practice as a volunteer in miscarriage support. Grief and bereavement can cause serious breakdown in clear conversation. Everybody thinks they know what you are going through and how you should act, but they don't as "they" are not you. Being able to tell your truth in a clear, consistent and honest way literally does save relationships at these overwhelming times and allows the right things to be said and understood and for grief to flow fluently.

I have recently purchased a Kindle copy for my own reference - hence the opportunity for this review. I'm delighted to have had the chance to pass this snippet on.
