As women, we are raised to be accommodating to people in need, to say yes when asked for a favor whenever possible, to always try to be helpful... There are so many people who exploit that and even though we see it, we find it hard to stop it. Reading this short ebook has helped me a lot. It gave me some great ideas and pointers and I feel I'm better able to say no now. Gone are the "internal freak-outs" over having to disappoint a family member or leaving a friend hanging. Her breathing exercise work like a charm and eliminate that feeling of guilt and anxiety. I love her EDC method and will continue to use it.

I usually would not rate an ebook this short as 5*, because most are thinly veiled advertisements for the author's services, but this book actually delivers. Charlene Richards is knowledgeable, she comes off as down-to-earth and she knows how to drive her point home in a clear, simple manner. I definitely recommend reading it!

Oh! This book(let) is for women! Well, I need to understand them better, being married to one, so I'll see what I can learn. After all, the author states she is a therapist and coach and works with some "unhappy and overwhelmed" women. These women often have "overwhelming feelings... problems with a relationship." And sometimes these feelings expressed by women overwhelm us guys! So here goes.

The author deals a lot with "emotional intelligence"--recognizing your emotions and those of others, managing your emotions, and communicating with those emotions in mind. Is all this that important: "A beautiful thing starts to happen when women have more energy, freedom, joy and happiness-- you start to give to others from a place of compassion and joy."

She promsies: "This book will provide you with the motivation and strategies you need to say 'no' to people in a polite and respectful way." (Loc. 25). One strategy is handling your "freaking out" in saying "no." Breathing deeply calms your mind, gives you energy to do so. Respond instead of react. Develop your ability by beginning with small "no's."

A little much in this book is self-promotion. But you might benefit by checking out her counseling services and other materials, keeping in mind you can say "No" or "Yes" to them! There are times when it's best to say YES to such offers!

This book is for women, like me, who are often "voluntold" to say yes to commitments that they would rather say no to. Even though this book is short, it really planted a seed of truth in my spirit. Worth the read just for the inspiration to lead my own decisions and not let the needs of others less my life. Enlightened and inspired.

In the movie 27 DRESSES there’s a moment when the hero asks the heroine if she’s ever said “no.” “Many, many times” she says, before breaking down and finally admitting, “Never. Not once.” I’m not quite that bad but there have been a lot of times (a LOT of times) where I really, really meant to say “no” but what I said was “yes” and then I wanted to kill myself because I’d just committed to spending a big chunk of my almost non-existent free time doing something I really, really didn’t want to do.
This book by Charlene Richard could have been written just for me. With chapters titled things like, “The Thought of Saying Totally No Freaks Me Out,” I immediately got the feeling that she knew me and knew exactly how hard it was not to be the one saying “yes” all the time. The author is a therapist who has seen many, many women ignore their own needs and “stuff their emotions” in the name of taking care of their loved ones. More than anything else, this short book is a blueprint for a new architecture of communication—a way to breaking through when people don’t seem to be listening.
Richard’s common-sense advice feels “real world” and her gentle nudging toward learning how to communicate emotions feels liberating. “Stop Reacting! Start Responding! she says and it makes sense. We don’t feel like we’re getting “bumper sticker” philosophy here but real tools that are simple (but not necessarily easy) as they are transformative.
If you have problems saying no, this book may explain why. Saying “yes” to the advice here will (at the very least) make sure you never commit to making five dozen cupcakes for a school bake sale because you’re everyone’s go-to-gal.

I think there were some really good tips in this book. I noticed there was not much conversation on the possible true reaction of individuals being told no. I was really looking for more information and techniques of saying no to employers and co-workers.

This book gave me great choices on how to say no. I'm amazed at how she knew what I feel when people trap me into what's good for them not caring if it's good for me or not. I now have more choices on how to stand up for my well being.
Highly recommend this book.
