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.

Changed my life completely

I will keep this short and sweet, but this book taught me how to understand the manipulative way most people talk and how to respond with an honest, assertive answer. More importantly, this book taught me how to trust my instinct and believe in what I do, say, or feel, even if I am the only one. I have learned that I am the ultimate judge of everything I think, say, and do, and that the consequences, good or bad, are acceptable.

I have read the book twice and listened to the audio once. A great refresher for me every year or so.

Everyone Should Read This

This book taught me so much about assertiveness and how to deal with manipulation. It also showed me how I was being manipulative or passive aggressive with others. Amazing book.

Informative

This gave me new ways to handle my manipulative people in my life. I took lots of notes and need to practice these tools to communicate more effectively.

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.

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.
