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.

For those who want to be encouraged and reminded.

Short, to the point, with a friendly style. There's just enough information to keep you engaged and assured you'll finish the book. The main points/ steps are clear with easy exercises. Nice refresher when entering new stages of life.

Thorough Analysis

Don't pay attention to the low-star reviews, this is a great book on assertiveness. The author gives very hands-on, real-world, and matter-of-fact advice. Nothing is sugar coated and the information is very detailed and explicit. I recommend this book not just to improve assertiveness, but to become a better overall communicator.

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!

A must listen for people who aren't assertive

This book is an excellent listen for anyone who hasn't learned to be assertive. It's not preaching to you, it just explains how to become more assertive in your life and some of the good that can become of it.

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!!!!

Take control of the now

I've enjoyed this book very much . This works. Yes it is a challenging path especially if you have caved-in many times in your life in situations s you wished you should have not. I recommend this to anyone who wants to free themselves from the low self esteem or behavior that generates it.

Great book!

This book was very relevant and hit on all the right areas. It was very informative, well-written and straight to the point, without all of the boring, never-ending stories. The best part was that it gives ways to practice and scenarios on what you may encounter. I would absolutely recommend this book!

Great book

I listen this book in a couple of hours. It has great advice on how to get started in one's journey towards being a more assertive person. It explains what being assertive means and gives examples on how to put the theory in practice.

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.
