Review

You know somebody’s written something good when it’s still selling strong 40 years after being written. And when you think about it, assertiveness is the same any time, anywhere.

When I first began reading, I thought this book was going to be a very dry college type lecture by a monotonous professor, but quickly changed my mine. This is quite an in-depth study in human behavior, beliefs and coping strategies in numerous situations. He even discusses the actions and beliefs of parents and how they affect us as we grow through childhood.

He explains how to cope using systematic assertive skills which he expounds upon. The main technique is so simple (“fogging” and refusing the implied guilt), it’s been very easy to apply in everyday life.

Smith’s methods work rapidly, easily, and consistently for the challenges that this book addresses, which are many. The insights contained in this book can be invaluable and practical to just about anyone. I highly recommend this book to give you the practical strategies for coping in various situations and becoming the assertive person you were meant to be.

To Your Abundance!
