The book has many role-playing scenarios so that the reader can see exactly how aggressive and non-assertive people behave. But best of all, Schwimmer shows readers how to properly resolve a conflict by being assertive. And he goes on to show readers in a step-by-step manner how they can ask for a pay raise they deserve -- and get it!
