Everyone Should Listen
My favorite section was the Bill of Rights of Assertiveness. It made me realize the obligation I felt to talk, act, and respond to people a certain way was unfounded and that I no longer needed to feel controlled by that obligation.
I believe this program would benefit a wide range of listeners, even confident, self-assured individuals, because it provides sound advice and guidance on the proper way to communicate with others and how to get what you want by creating win-win with others.
This is a fantastic book. I had read it a few years ago and it helped me out a lot. When I found out an audio version was available, I wanted to hear it. The audio is a great compliment to the book. It fills in pieces nicely as you get to hear the tone and flow of how assertive communication sounds. Hearing the information made it even easier to apply the suggestions.
Yes, I was streaming the audio and the internet cut out, and I got up to fix it so I could finish it before moving on to other things on my to-do list.
Like the stories on the book. Very helpful. Contrasting from agressive to passive behavior.
Only that narrator has a whispering voice. When I was driving in the car with my Bluetooth on, it was really hard to understand.
Well its my first audio book, so it ranks top of the list :) I really liked this program and its narration. If other audio-books are like this, I'd consider listening to more books on audio.
I liked all the discussion surrounding parents whether it was asserting yourself with parents, being an assertive parent, and teaching your child to be assertive. As a mom dealing with my irrational parents as well as my sometimes difficult children, these sections presented important life lessons for me
The audio quality was professional and the narrator's voice was affluent and comfortable to listen to.
I liked the dialogue about how to ask for a raise. Provides a safe framework of how to approach your boss so he/she is aware of your needs while you of his/her.
Myths that keep you from being assertive.
Overall, an impressive book with complete advice on how to improve communication with difficult people.
I learned a lot in a few hours of instruction. And the point made about practice was very clear. I recommend this audio for people wanting to become more assertive.
I'm pretty sure this book was written overnight in order to make a quick buck.
The so called "specific skills" are ones you would expect to find in a 1950's speech class text book, not anything you haven't already heard before if you made it through 8th grade.
I found this a very interesting book with useful tips and techniques that one can put into practice immediately. There were a few chapters at the end that slowed down, but the first four chapters were excellent.
There's a lot of "be good" and "you should" advice without giving underlying causes that each piece of advice is supposed to address. Essentially answering the "why" I will succeed by following this is lacking. It has a "just trust me" feel about it, so where being assertive has a lot of risks for the novice, I'm hesitant to try the exercises.
Wow this book was so awesome!!
I love the concept. Teaches me a lot, I have been living on the passive and aggressive side for the longest while but now I will do the transition and be Assertive and still win the respect of others.
