"Decent advice for many situations, not all."
I wouldn't rule it out, but I think I got what I was interested in getting from this topic.
The advantages of practicing assertiveness, and distinction between assertiveness and aggressiveness is a good reminder.
Not an issue.
For some maybe, not for me.
I think this book is great for people who err on the passive side, but if people err on the aggressive side in tone, body language, or facial expressions then I feel like the wording this book suggests as examples may still come across aggressively. I think more finesse can be achieved to marry assertiveness with diplomacy and social tact.
A better narrator. Less of a "documentary" style manner would have been good.
It was very clinical and I didn't feel like I connected with the book at all.
It reminded me of those boring documentaries you used to have to sit through in school.
Robotic voice was distracting and the content delivered very systematically. I couldn't finish the book
Interesting information just poorly delivered.
"Dificult to connect with"
Spoken in a British accent with British language. Personally, I found it difficult to connect with.
