The book I most often take off my shelf and show to clients. Even if all you learn from it is the "Broken record" technique and accept that his "Assertiveness Bill of Rights" applies to you, it can change your life for the better. I studied this work about 20 years ago and incorporated it's concepts into my life and dealings with people. It has been an enormous help. I have returned to my study notes on this book many times

After these pages, I used my assertive right of skimming to the end of the book. A mark of a caring author is someone who makes you feel that this is not a bad thing -- indeed, someone who might even encourage it -- and Dr. Smith is such an author. Overall, he's clearly an expert in assertiveness, and was able to draw upon a substantial wealth of classroom experiences in each of the topics that he discussed.
This made the book richer and more useful.
I didn't read all of the dialogues because they were a bit repetitive, but the ones I did read were quite funny -- in particular the "FOGGING" one was hilarious and I wrote "lol" all over the margins.
There is a great pages between p.
So, you might be asking, why I am giving this book four stars, instead of five? I understand why you'd ask that question, but I'm not interested in answering it right now.
