Publisher's Summary

Asking others what we need or want is natural and desirable and is an important part of interpersonal communication. In this book we will refer to different types of requests such as: asking for favors, information, or help; asking for defective merchandise to be changed; proposing activities, etc.

Being assertive when making requests means asking for what we want, properly, while respecting the rights and feelings of others. This includes:

• Asking for things frequently, as this increases the chances of other people accepting our requests and getting what we want 

• Requesting information on issues that interest us or that we do not understand (e.g., in class or at the doctor's office) 

• Exposing what we want clearly, to facilitate the other to understand us and to reduce the chances of our message being ignored or distorted 

• Making requests persuasively, to make it easier for the other to access them 

• Considering how the other feels so as not to bother him unnecessarily 

• Respecting the right of others to reject our requests 

• Non-assertive ways of making requests: inhibition and aggressiveness 

This book will help you understand how you can effectively communicate with others and how to avoid being misunderstood.

Tips are gender neutral enough for this guy

This book will be completely relatable to both men and women. It is not by a woman for women.

The narration is clear, pleasant and has a good pace.

I liked the "big cats/ little cats" theme. The author explains not only how each behaves, but explains why one approach is better and how to deploy the big cat strategy.

Each topic concluded with the perfect blend of concept, imagery, examples and action items.

I couldn't help but think, "Oh, that's why!", "Whoops!" or "Now I know how to..." as I listened.

Some good advise, but...

There was some good advise in this book, but it was seemed mostly tailored to politicians and salesmen. Too manipulative to put to use in sincere relationships. Probably my mistake, the subtitle might have tipped me off!

Very well.

My only complaint is that this Audiobook as well as many others I have to listen to lately needs better proof of listening! Years ago you never saw mistakes in an Audiobook. Now I find mistakes all the time. As a result, I can handle the relationships with my community friends and people very well.

A great audio book

This is a great listen and the tips that are giving actually work! It is so easy to listen and the stories are lively and very informative with out making you feel like an idiot. I like the fact that the studies are footnoted so I can go back and fact check, for my own reference, the chapters are short and give you a tip to try after each chapter is done. I highly recommend this book to anyone who deals with people on a daily, and well, lets be honest, that’s everybody.

Appears to me obsolete. Not one notice of cell phone decorum. There's an alert. I shouldn't simply express profound gratitude without saying what for. Much obliged for singing the blindingly clear and being so obsolete.

The stunts are anything but difficult to apply in a split second and makes mindfulness on self correspondence, conduct and connections. I truly delighted in it, profoundly prescribed.

Informative

It's significant that we generally endeavor to develop and create as people. This audio book gave some incredible bits of knowledge into how to better yourself, relate with others, and impart. It's something beyond a book about talking with others; it encourages you open the genuine potential inside yourself.

Helpful For Us

This discernible offers a progression of little deceives that aren't useful at all in genuine discussion. They may help you once in your life however just in case you're as of now a nice conversationalist. They won't fix the genuine issue you most likely have in case you're searching for a discernible on the best way to converse with individuals and how to impart.

This audible inspires me to continue

"Just as martial arts experts register their fists as lethal weapons." - This is total BS and 100% fake. It's like she just writes what she wants with no accountability.

This audible is for the worthy reveal

" My friend the ceo of this company", "...my friend the company president of this company." - She says this with almost every reference. If this is true she must know the CEO of every company ever so therefore it it my assumption that its false.

This audible provides valuable information

This book is 15% semi-useful, 15% repeated, 30% made up junk and 40% absolute garbage with no reference or context to fill space.

This audible would be better if all the rubbish was just taken out and everything was straight to the point. - May only be 50 pages long or a 40 minute audioaudible but at least then I wouldn't have wasted my time on it.
