Reviews - What do customers think about When I Say No, I Feel Guilty?
A useful, practical guide. Jan 29, 2008
I have found this book to be as relevant today as when it was published. There are a wide range of examples in the book showing how the skills taught can be used. This examples are excellent starting points to practise the skills yourself with others and then step on to applying them in your everyday life.
When I say no.... Jan 24, 2008
Although I have been trying to be more assertive over the past couple of years it was not until I read this book that I knew what things I did made me come off as a push-over and what made me strong. Now I am able to transition into a more equal role with those around me when the situation changes.
Its a great read
Assertiveness without Being Obnoxious Aug 8, 2007
My favorite book on how to be assertive without being obnoxious. I've given copies to may of my friends who can't say "no" when they really want to. Many very useful techniques for dealing with all kinds of people and situations.
Thank God for this book! These techniques are timeless! Aug 8, 2007
I went to assertive training more than 25 years ago, and the early edition of this book was what they used. The techniques are timeless. Thank God I learned these skills before I got married! They have added so much to our relationship (25 years and going strong!). Thank God I learned these skills before I had to deal with insurance companies about my long term illness. These techniques work great with insurance companies! Especially the broken record technique. It is amazing how few "no"s an insurance rep has! I have read almost all books on the subject (I have my masters in communication), and this is still the best one out there! It can make your life happier! These skills have been making my life better for years! Hope you buy it, and it does the same for you!
Not only a life-saver but funny too Jun 25, 2007
This is a book I will keep forever and review over and over. For details as to the content, you can search inside this book and look at the table of contents on this site's web site. This author's writing is clear, the chapters are well-organized, and the examples he gives are realistic. Best of all, he made me laugh frequently about a subject that usually causes anxiety for me. His style of humor reminds me of Dave Barry. It's not a book about controlling other people; it simply helps clarify how to avoid the numerous ways that people, even well-meaning people, talk us into doing what they want rather than what we want. Another very good book on this subject is "The Assertiveness Workbook" by Randy J. Paterson, Ph.D., and I would recommend purchasing both. Each offers exercises you can practice either alone or with a partner to develop your assertiveness skills. I've only had these two books about a week and have already experienced a positive change in the way I relate to others.
