Reading her book is so much fun, you laugh out loud one moment, then you find yourself nodding and saying "that is so true" the next.

What are your dreams? Have you noticed that great communicators get what they want? Get this book. My response to this book is summarized in one word: "Wow!" On page 12, author Sarita Maybin discusses her insightful "A.I.R. Model" of Awareness, Impact and Request. Excellent information! On page 40, she shares "Sarita's Top 10 Positive Communication Phrases" -- I have posted these 10 items near my computer monitor. On page 90, she discusses "Phrases of Praise." This 140 page book is powerful. Let's notice the truth: the best communicators accomplish more and feel fulfillment. This book will help you accomplish your dreams and enjoy life, too.

Sarita Maybin packed the encyclopedia of interpersonal relationships into this concise, practical book. Her easy to digest how-to's can help you navigate any work or personal challenge. After a small investment in learning Sarita's new "language", you will be well on your way to greater communication finesse. Although the author focuses on empowering us to work better together, the book also serves as a primer on how to create what you want.

I've read and followed the Non-Violent Communication process for years and know that it works. I'm delighted that Sarita provides an even simpler way to elevate your communication, and I enjoyed the humorous way she helps you to do so.

What an outstanding book! I found it packed with useful suggestions for my everyday conversations that are difficult to have because I am not sure what to say. Sarita's practical advice makes it easier to communicate on sensitive topics before they become major issues as well as on major issues and get results. This book is a "must have" for anyone who wants to improve their communication with family members, friends, co-workers, managers, business colleagues, etc.

Humor and excellent insight, along with great acronyms you can recall when in the midst of conversations--all that and more can be found in this great read. Sarita really does keep it simple and practical for the conversations you will have for ANY life situation. I have had the honor and pure fun of participating in several Sarita Maybin conferences over the years, and my company has also hired her to train our managers on "working together better" solutions. Reading her book is so much fun, you laugh out loud one moment, then you find yourself nodding and saying "that is so true" the next. My entire management team is reading this book now and exclaiming how "on time" and "helpful" it is! Thanks Sarita, for a book your readers will pick up over and over again!

Whether you're a seasoned professional or just learning to navigate the world of interpersonal communication, you can pick up valuable tips from Sarita Maybin. The advice in IF YOU CAN'T SAY SOMETHING NICE... is practical and easy to master. As a college educator, I've found myself referring to the tips in this book when talking to students about everything from grievances against professors to roommate squabbles. I've seen Sarita in action as a dynamic speaker and I'm thrilled to see her bringing her message to a larger audience. Brava!
