This book impressed me when I first read it 25 years ago. And it has stood the test of time: I felt amazed at how much more useful the techniques seemed when I reread it recently.
A couple of points deserve emphasis:
1. In addition to teaching you how to say "no" without feeling guilty, the author masterfully teaches you simple, powerful techniques for keeping your cool while you're under attack.
2. This book plays an important role in the set of cognitive, emotive, and behavioral skills taught by psychologists such as Albert Ellis and David Burns. While books such as "A New Guide to Rational Living" (Ellis) and "The Feeling Good Handbook" (Burns) contain tools that address a far wider range of problems, Smith's methods work far more rapidly, easily, and consistently for the challenges that this book addresses.
I strongly recommend this book for anyone wanting to quickly and easily learn to (i) say "no" without feeling guilty and/or (ii) react coolly to attacks by others.
So why am I here after 25 years writing a review? Of course, apart from the fact that Amazon.com didn't exist then, I visited Amazon to get hold of the ISBN number for the book. One of my programmers, a very shy soft spoken person, was getting bullied by a fellow programmer. The first thing that came to my mind was the book; the book has made such an impact on me that till today I remember the title and author's name without a typo.
If you want to stop doing things you don't want to do, then read this book...I don't care if there are any reviews for this book that are not so good, but just buy the book and find out for yourself. Money well spent....
