I really liked that the book contained a "bill of assertive rights." After I read them, I gradually began to believe that I deserved to be happy and deserved to take care of myself even when it inconveniences people I care about. Internalizing these rights helped me to say no, without guilt and without breaking into tears and caving in, for the very first time to the most recent of uncountably many of my parents' unreasonable requests.
As a young adult entering graduate school, who is not married, who has only ever worked part-time in food service and retail to build savings and pay for minor expenses, and who has not yet dealt with many common adult issues concerning money, I didn't relate to many of the example dialogues, which cited assertive techniques explained in the longer chapters I couldn't bring myself to read. Still, I am going to keep the book and refer to it when I have more responsibility for my expenses and am actually required to deal with unreasonable expectations at work, annoying people I don't want to talk to (I feel responsible sometimes to listen to these people even in uncomfortable situations, which once led to the person stalking me) or, when I am a professor, manipulative students who make a habit of asking for extensions.
So, if you need help in asserting yourself with a manipulative domestic partner, an employer, an employee, in important job interviews, or are unfulfilled in your sex life, the interviews in this book may be helpful to you.
I, on the other hand, plan to try and find another book with information tailored to younger people.
When I lend or give a book to somebody I suggest they start reading about page 72, just before the heading "BROKEN RECORD." After reading about 10 or 12 pages from there it is a good place to stop and read the book from the beginning. That way you will have an early introduction to the "fun" skills and dialogs. Then the first 70 pages are easier to read because you will have an idea what they are leading up to.
Buy it, you will like it. Buy it, you will like it. Buy it, you will like it. Buy it, you will like it. Buy it, you will like it. Buy it, you will like it. Buy it, you will like it.
[Broken Record works, doesn't it?] I really mean it... Buy it, you will like it.
edited on 1/21/2016 to raise rating to 5 stars. I now am looking for more paperback copies of this book to give away. If I am going to buy this many, you can bet it deserves 5.
