This is a wonderful book. It is so well-written. I recommend it regularly. It has changed my life. It is assertiveness training for the real world. Amador is clear, specific, and encouraging. A practical guide to improving transactions in business and personal arenas. When you use these techniques, you'll feel wonderful about yourself. A winning read.

I was surprised to find that I'M RIGHT, YOU'RE WRONG, showed me as much about my thinking processes as it did the person diagnosed with mental illness. I purchased this book because I was motivated to help my relative. But in the process we are both learning better communication and I'm learning to unpack my assumptions, judgments, etc.. (Xavier Amador writes, clearly, from his unique experience as a family member and a professional counselor.)

This is helpful material, well-presented. It has the potential to transform your relationships if you will apply it.

Not a quick read and put it down kind of book. More read here, read there, think about it, try it out, read some more kind of book.

In particular I like that Amador gives detailed examples of a variety of situations where the techniques are actually used, such as a couple discussing whether to move the family for a job opportunity, grown sisters negotiating over when to schedule a family reunion, and handling conflict on the phone with a hospital nurse who cites privacy laws in refusing to provide critical medical info about the author's mother. These examples help me project the LEAP technique into my own life.

Really helps you understand how we get into impasses with each other and are unable to move forward. He explains how, what, and why, giving good examples with how to think about the problem and what to say and what not to say. He helps you understand how to turn the person you're having the argument with from an adversary back into a friend or partner. Great book!

This is an excellent book. It makes sense and it also takes time to put into practice what is being suggested.
