Boring and Mechanical

The advice in this book doesn't have much assertiveness advice, just a lot of things to be aware and careful of, also it's presented in a very mechanical cookie cutter fashion, not how real conversations, specially assertive ones, happen. The narration is terrible, doesn't give any indication of how assertiveness ought to be expressed...returning

vague enough to be totally useless

No practical tips or tricks, no concrete suggestions, just vague precepts without any factual backing or support. This audiobook was a complete waste of $8.

The narrator sounds like a "computer" voice.

It was hard listening to this book due to the narrator's computer sounding voice. The content was interesting.

Great!

What helped me most about this book was knowing that things I'd LIKE to say aren't wrong, and that I can stand up for myself in an appropriate way. I know that if I don't, I will bottle frustration up, causing a blowup of aggression instead of assertiveness. Great book!

Excellent Practical Advice

What a wonderful, easy, insightful listen! The book is written very succinctly, and is packed with simple and powerful practical advice, ranging from your body language to a watch list of common pitfalls. The author did an outstanding job in delivering the message, while also providing motivational support to the listener.

Very helpful and practical

The author really understands the issues people have with lacking assertiveness. His advice is practical and to the point. He shows a lot of compassion yet honesty about what it takes to gain this skill. Great for developing a deeper sense of self and confidence in being who your are and speaking your mind.

I’ve learned the most from this book

I’ve listen quite a few books on this topic but this book was direct and gave such great examples of how I could implement what just listen which is important for me. Modeling behavior helps me to learn and he gives example responses for various situations to get you started which I am grateful for. I also found great benefit in the affirmations as well. If you struggle in this area this is the perfect book for you!

AHA!! This is the book i have been looking for!!!!

This book is sooo on the point.Have been listening to the first few chapters and found some real AHA! moments. I felt that this book was written specially for me by the author. I have read countless other books but this stands out.So far I have tried out the advice, and IT WORKS!!!!. I recommend you read the timeless, olden but golden, "When I say no I feel Guilty" by Manuel J. Smith. This book and and the other one i just mentioned are the only one you need!! great!!!!

Short & Sweet! Lots of Practical Advice!

I listened to this 3 times in a row on a long journey in the car! Love the many references to ‘balance’ & ensuring assertiveness does not become arrogance. As a sales performance coach I’m always looking for research & learning. This little gem offers practical advice without the waffle & padding that comes with more expensive options!

Very factual

I enjoyed the contents of this book, I found it hard to listen to as the way it's communicated is very factual. The concepts cary good weight, although it's to the point and doesn’t explore the content in depth. I read crucial conversations which is a more in depth version of this. This book does explore body language more which I find valuable. Thanks

Useful information but let down by the Narrator

This book would’ve been a 4-5 star as the content is quite useful. Unfortunately the narrator sounds like a robot.

Great!!

Great!!! Basically an audio on how to be an assertive self-respecting person. As someone who grew up in an unhealthy family Asian household without positive role models, this fills in a lot of gaps I was missing. So helpful if you struggle with passivity and low self esteem.
