Finally the book I have been looking for!

Took me a year to find it and many other purchases, but with this book I have FINALLY found the book I have been searching for for a long time.

To truly be assertive, confident, fair, calm and mature when communicating does not come easy. It is a skill and like all skills, it must be learnt. Fortunately this book breaks it all down, into very very easy to manage and understand chunks. It is very well written and narrated full of original ideas and thoughts,

I am more confident and in control both in my personal life and my work life and I am already seeing very positive results.

FULLY recommend this book!

Very good for being more confident

Everyone could do with a shot of confidence when it comes to their social skills and this is exactly what this book delivers. I loved the parts on being assertive, it shows you how to do it without being rude or angry.

Assertiveness

Until I heard this book a few months ago, I had no real idea how effective it can be to know and use proper assertive skills.

Confidence is everything

Actually very surprised how good this book was. Got it more for background listening but ended up being fascinated by the "tools" it gave me,

Always struggled with assertiveness

I have always struggled with assertiveness, even if I KNOW im in the right I feel it is very difficult to really stand up for myself and do it without starting a fight - all that is set to change. Impressed with what I learnt, made me see things in a very very different light. Managed to have a "difficult" conversation today, something I would have avoided before.

Assertiveness

Being quite a shy person I never really understood assertiveness or how to develop the skills. This book made it stupidly EASY! Step by step processes. I have never felt more in control of my life as I do now.
