I recently participated in an online tutorial writing course with Sam Horn entitled Write Well, Write Fast, Write Now (from Learning Strategies Corporation) and I decided that I could benefit from researching and knowing some of the Course Tutors Works and this purchase was made as part of that research. Sam Horn has gradually over a number of years built up a collective suite of her writing works and I purchased a number of them in order to familiarise myself with her style and writing disciplines.
Whilst this book is perhaps now one of her older works I do think that in generational terms, some styles and fashions and indeed behaviours and so on always get handed down, as do methodologies of dealing with such issues, and I think Sam's Work's will demonstrably stand the test of time, I had not heard of her prior to the course, although she was and already is a best seller within the American Market Place, so her fan base perhaps spreading and expanding to here in the UK and Europe and the wider World to New Audience's and new markets via modern day communcation's networks and the internet or World Wide Web.
This book teaches you how to deal with bullies in all areas of life, and how to become more self-sufficient. It also teaches you important life skills such as the how to project confidence so that you don't get targeted by unethical people, and so on.
Basically, it teaches you what your parents should have!
I would recommend this to anyone -- particularly if you have ever been in any kind of abusive relationship (an abusive partner, an abusive parent, etc.). It will help you to build your self-esteem up again. The chapter about "people pleasing" will be very appropriate and useful to many.
I recommend this book for everyone dealing with the bullies of the world and, especially, the bullies in their lives. Each chapter is thought-provoking and there are plenty of different self care suggestions to consider. A must for anyone in a verbally and/or emotionally abusive relationship.
