Great information for each aspect of life

The book was well written and is laid out in an organized manner. There was plenty of advice on being assertive in various relationships to include, work, family, personal relationships and even car dealerships! Some of the dialogue is annoying and plenty of the content is borrowed from other books, but overall, a decent read and I don't regret the purchase.

Insightful

This book is very insightful, from start to finish. Some of the info you may know or already probably aware, but it’ll helps to hear it being said to affirm it in your mind. Once it is, it really can turn your life around of the better.

Very Useful advice

This book has very useful and helpful advice. The most important thing I have is the difference between being assertive and aggressive. Assertive is starting what you want while being respectful of others. That's a lesson I will apply.

Good book, but I liked first half of it more

Good book, but I liked first half of it more. First half was imformative and fresh, revealing I would say and later it become very dry workbook. However it good to give examples but I don't believe half of book for examples is right way. However this is just my personal opinion.

Empowering and practical

This is a short but quite practical audiobook on assertiveness. It makes me reflect on my own experiences and somehow subconciously start implementing the principles straight away. Good narration. Worth reading and rereading!
