What a joy to see the change in this young man. I recommend it for every parent. It's not only helpful in handling school-yard bullies, it also trains the children to have the confidence to handle bullies in the workforce and other situations throughout their lives.
This author is to be highly commended for the help she's giving children, enabling them to have better, happier, more productive lives.
I highly recommend this book.
For me, there are fewer things more irksome and distasteful than brown nosing. Taking command of oneself and being assertive, that is declaring one's needs without infringing upon the rights of others is a major accomplishment and does a lot to keep one's nose from becoming brown and clogged with wasteful residue caused by sycophantic servility.
This book provides excellent examples of developing assertiveness skills which feed and lead into higher esteem and is helpful for ALL ages. There is a strong positive correlation between assertiveness and esteem - that is, the more assertive one is, the higher one's self esteem is and the more positive their self image is.
I wish I could rate this work even more stars. It is a book for everybody!
