Awesome!

Very well written and equally well presented. The strategies listed here are simple and yet very workable!

Assertiveness is a Muscle

A thorough treatment if how to recognize if you are a people-pleaser and need to grow in assertiveness, and then everyday ways to practice building that muscle (hint: start with low resistance and work your way up the stack). Simple but not easy. Well done.

Don't Waste Your Time

This book is generic. You've already heard or concluded everything the author has to say. I feel like I could have wrote something better. Very little insight is offered on this subject by this book. Not worth the time. It may be good for junior high or high school kids but not adults with a lot life experience. Furthermore, the assertiveness problems the author presents is only from a first world privileged position i.e. Someone getting your order wrong at Starbucks. Really? There's real issues in the world. I recommend reading Brene Brown's books instead. Her honesty through vulnerability approach to solving people pleasing has been working well for me. Save your money or audible credits!

It could help some, but it was lacking

The book had potential and some elements were very good. However, it is far too short and I never really appreciate adverts in a book I've bought.
worth a read, but don't think it'll change your world
