Wow! What do you know...

This book actually was effective. There is a lot of repetitious "role play" that at first started to get on my nerves, but once I realized- "OH! He is ACTUALLY teaching by examples!" It started coming together! Author makes good on the Help part of this book. It actually does and it opened my mind to be less tense about "things". We each are our own captains, to naturally be a part of any process we come across. Just being a "Yes" man robs people of experience, creative control. But that is the true reason we are alive- to create OUR experiences.

One of the most usefull books I've experienced.

I can't say enough how helpful this book has been for me. No fluff and no nonsense; just real, practical advice for dealing with yourself and others in a non-defensive and non-manipulative way.

Culturally dated, single message, limited scope

There are some valuable tools here, however the book is limited in scope and background which makes this approach simplistic and formulaic. Many hours are spent on sample dialogue which are helpful but become repetitive. This book includes examples of how to speak in different situations from store clerks to sexual encounters with acquaintances or partners.

This book was enlightening!

This topic is well delivered. The perspective is something I feel I could connect to. The suggestions are practical. The advice gives me hope.

Vital

I've listened to this book 3 times now and I plan on listening more. I struggle with high anxiety and passive aggressiveness and this book gives me a voice to speak again! There's nothing quite as comforting as the coincidence to ask for what you want.

Great way to restart middle-age

This book gave me more insight into how my actions are governed by perceived and childhood training. I learned how to recognize and redirect my improper manipulative behaviors and reprogram myself to be self assured and assertive.

Simple practical steps - I can’t wait to start.

Most growth books do a lot of why discussion - reinforcing our pre-existing knowledge we need to change in an area (why else did we buy a book on that subject?)
This book gives an easy map - simple steps to be practiced - backed by almost 30 dialogue sessions showing how the steps will sound in actual practice and the effect of using them.

When you hear a book and say - “wow, I can’t wait to start implementing what this book suggests”, you know is a good one and can change your life. This is just such a book.

Required reading for life

I’ve recently had some opportunities to put to practice the skills taught in this book. It has been so empowering and, dare I say it, fun! I wish I had read this book many years ago. It would have saved me many years of being manipulated by guilt and obligation. I’m recommending it to everyone I know who may have the occasion to have to deal with a manipulative person (which is everyone)! The author teaches by giving practical examples, and it really works!

Learned so much

Many examples note I must placed what I have learned to practice. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Very Good Treatment of Important Topic

Well-done treatment of important topic. The first chapters provide theoretical foundation, which went a bit long for my taste. But the later chapters have a depth of examples of techniques to say "No" and make it stick.

Old but gold

It was only midway through the book when the author talked about Marlon Brando that I realised how old this book was.

Everything in it is still relevant.

I got a lot from this book and will read again.
