I read and used this workbook a few years ago... It really helped me to understand assertiveness. I have always been 'too nice' and whenever I stood up for myself I felt bad... this workbook helped me to learn the difference, and gave practical excercises to do in order to learn how to be assertive. I would highly recommend this book...

This book was easy to read, easy to understand and very easy to apply immediately to life circumstances. I particularly found useful the chart of behaviors and the aspects of appearance very well written, vivid and clear. This book was full of accurate user friendly information that anyone would be able to apply in their lives whatever their circumstance or job.

This is a great workbook format to fill in and work through.
I 'did the work' and it has already paid off. Communication is something to work on in every encounter.
It is not easy work, but it is rewarding.
I do not have a partner for some of the exercises, but I did stand in front of the mirror!
I didn't realize how much my body language revealed.
I took written notes and find it easier to remember if I write stuff down, and it's easier to review the major points instead of flipping through sections you already read.
My first confrontation with my boss went better than before. I was not as anxious and felt calm after it was over. Usually I put myself down for saying too much, or being a doormat and saying nothing at all. I didn't feel superior, and wasn't overpowered by the aggressive boss. It was easy to see his communication style and just let it be his problem, and not make it my own.

Great book. I like that the writers are very down to earth and are not trying to sell you some sort of miracle trick. A lot of good advices that are explained in a clear but not simplistic way. The context in which these advice should be taken is also well explained, and the book uses a lot of warnings that the situation you're in will greatly influence how relevant the advices are.

Great basic little workbook on assertiveness. If you have never done any assertiveness training this is a great place to start. Most people mistake assertiveness with being aggressive. It is quite the opposite. This book will teach you how to express yourself reasonably when you are angry and to understand why you are angry.
