    A positive book that will shape your life

    This book shaped who I am today. Wayne Dyer is a gift from God. His approach to life and outlook is postive, stimulating, straight forward and easy to apply. You will want to buy all his books and listen to his cds. Wayne Dyer is uplifting and inspirational. A must read for those of you who want to become more confident and lead a purposeful, full life.

    Great Book!

    I bought this book to help me to learn to say no to people without feeling guilty about it. Not only has it helped me to be straightforward with others, it has helped me to have the courage to ask for things (i.e., raise at work, etc.) & question things that don't seem right instead of just accepting things the way they are. I highly recommend it to anyone who feels that they are taken advantage of & want to be a stronger, more assertive person.

    The best Shyness-Busting and Social/People Skills Book

    This is a great book on assertiveness. And for developing social/people skills. But more than that, this is the best book ever written on how to overcome shyness and stand up for yourself. Shy and quiet people, this is the book for you! I advise shy and quiet people to read this book over and over again in order to master its contents. No problem, because this book is so personally, enjoyfully, and masterfully written. And every time that you read it, you will feel yourself becoming more powerful and capable. You'll need this book for dealing with people in your career/job, neighborhood, family, and with friends. How else are you going to defend yourself against the aggressive people in your life: dominators, manipulators,egotists, and people on power- trips, etc. ? Some say that Dr.Dyer is a softer version of Dr.Phil. (And yes, Dyer is writing spiritual books now). But this book is very much of an exception. As it says in an ad in the original paperback version: "The ultimate in assertiveness training, a kind of psychological karate course that will stop even the proverbial 500 pound gorilla in his tracks." This book can turn you into a tiger, if you apply yourself. It kicks ass!
