So, lets say you are like me and bought this book! Chances are you can read it like I did in an hour and a half. It's a light, casual read that will force you to empathize with others who do have this affliction. In essence, you can still get something out of it by understanding how this advice could help those around you.
So, why am I taking a star off? This isn't really "the art" of saying no. Artistry is something that requires mastery. Here I am, well on my path as a journeyman of being a no man, looking for a master to follow to further learn the art. I need a 400 level course, not a 99. Basically, I think the title is misleading. I would equate it to naming an entry level algebra class to "the art of doing barely basic math, just good enough." It just doesn't cut it.
I bought this book to follow up on soft no's from a book called Never Split the Difference which is about tactics from an FBI (ya one of those click-bait style books) hostage negotiation. He suggests rarely using No directly, but responding with targeting questions that start with "what" or "how" that will leave it up to the other side to reason a logical no.
Explores the reasons why we feel like we have to say yes and gives you the tools to learn to say no.
“The best way to help people over the long run is to ensure your needs are met first” This is something I definitely struggle with and this books has given me tools to learn to say no and make sure my needs are met first.
There is even a short “quiz” in the book to see how much of a “people pleaser” you are. I found my results to be right on the money.
