Helpful but lacking,
This review is from: Assertiveness: How to be Strong in Every Situation (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm 50-50 on this book. I did like the layout and the book did seek to cover many areas of conflict including work and friendships as well as personal relationships. On the down side, however, I felt the advice given was rather naive in places and assumed everyone was really nice and reasonable if you only stood your ground and reasoned with them! I liked the scenarios where the issues were dealt with through face to face conversations I just found that the people I deal with do not respond in such idealistic reasonable ways as those in the book. A good idea and helpful in places.
