This book contains some great techniques for dealing with people who aggressively try to manipulate you.

For me, the voice of the book overshadows its intent and helpfulness, but doesn't change the fact that I did benefit from reading it. THE GOOD

My therapist recommended this book & well... He probably shouldn't have because after reading it I felt much more empowered and control of my life I stopped going to him! For a pushover like me, it has done wonders for my life

I have read 4 best selling books on the subject of assertiveness over the last 30 years. This was the first and the best. It clearly describes simple, non-defensive assertiveness tools and provides lots of example scripts. I have probably recommended it to a couple of hundred people who struggle with saying "No." One caution, the book has been in print in this format a very long time. It has a glued binding and paper is cheap. If you buy used, I would recommend you buy higher quality. I bought my oldest copy around 30 years ago and it looks exactly the same as the format that is currently selling new, and it is old enough for the pages to be quite yellowed and fall out as you turn them.

THE classic for people who want to learn how to stand up for themselves more easily and effectively.

If you'd like to twist your critics into knots buy this book. With the techniques taught in this book people attacking you will have about as much luck as attacking an anvil. They will become extremely frustrated and not really know why. You'll seem to be the most pleasant person who often agrees with their attacks. I've used these techniques for over twenty years....maybe longer. It's worked with co-workers, lovers, and bosses. After a while they get reluctant to confront you unless it is important. This is the field manual for passive defense.

I'll start by saying, I will not sugar-coat this review. This book contains some great techniques for dealing with people who aggressively try to manipulate you. That being said, the book is SO incredibly outdated in its voice and approach that I found it difficult to read it without its context being ironic. For me, the voice of the book overshadows its intent and helpfulness, but doesn't change the fact that I did benefit from reading it.

THE GOOD:

The examples used in the book are lengthy and repetitive. This is good because the redundancy of it programmed my mind to look for examples of those instances in my own life where I could apply the concepts of the book. A light bulb began going off in my mind when I'd experience an opportunity to try out one of the techniques described in the book. Over time, it has helped change my attitude and approach toward aggressive and manipulative people.

The book gives concrete techniques for applying in your everyday conversations: BROKEN RECORD, FOGGING, FREE INFORMATION, NEGATIVE ASSERTION, WORKABLE COMPROMISE, NEGATIVE INQUIRY. I began using them, and they do work! I occasionally go back and re-read chapters because it does take practice... but eventually it becomes more second nature and your confidence level builds as a result.

THE NOT-SO-GOOD

It is painfully obvious that this book was written in the 70s, with the male author using phraseology and examples that are misogynistic, self-congratulatory, racially charged, patriarchal, and bigoted. In a way, it is good to see how far we have come since the Civil Rights movement, but I really wish someone would publish an updated edition of this text that uses relevant, objective examples that do not detract from the overall purpose of the text. Personally, found it very annoying to waste so much time prodding through excessive ego-driven banter to find the nuggets of useful information. I wouldn't have kept going if the nuggets hadn't been so needed and useful. If you want an example, just look at the so-called Table of Contents. It's more like a glossary or appendix that provides a cluttered description of every chapter rather than just a simple chapter name and page number. I can take my own notes, thank you... and I prefer the appendix to be at the end of the book.

Fun fact: The author mentions sex so much in the book that I actually began playing a game to see if I could read through more than two pages with out seeing a reference to sex. The answer is no.

If you can tolerate the author's voice long enough to get through this book, it is admittedly very useful.

I liked some of the reading. For the most part the formatting of the book is a little weird. It tries to teach something then give some dialogue as examples. I would say some of the dialogue is a bit too long though. It was hard to read through it. This book was written in the 70's and its a bit outdated Chapter seven has an example of a woman coming into class with a black eye and saying I should have listened to you (author) you don't sarcastically fog your boyfriend. There are numerous other situations that just did not sit well with me. Do not recommend there's better books out there.

Changed my life when it first came out. Made it so much easier to be kind and helpful without becoming annoyed or resentful. Recently passed along my well-read and tattered at the edges hard cover copy and bought the Kindle version so it can travel with me. Not to be missed if you ever find it hard to say no to a request or ask for what you need.
I read this 35 years ago and still have the book but I wanted a Kindle version. I had a recent situation that I felt I needed to brush up on my assertiveness training skills I learned in this book namely Broken Record and Fogging. I was a little rusty but the situation was resolved in my favor thanks to these skills and the book advising persistence and not giving up.
