    "valuable insighs"

    like any skill, I don't think that you should just read one book about self-esteem, confidence, or assertiveness to get a handle on this area of your life, I definitely think this should be included in your list of books. without the key concepts discussed here, all the other advice will not be as effective in getting you to go out and actually practice assertiveness in your life.

    "Well Written, Well Narrated, Informative"
    If you could sum up Assertiveness in three words, what would they be?

    Everyone Should Listen


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Useful, Practical, and Down-to-Earth"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Assertiveness to be better than the print version?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.

    "A couple of hours of powerful instructions"

    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.

    "Effective Advice Presented Simply"
    Where does Assertiveness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Assertiveness?

    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
