A "How To Primer" on Assertiveness
Mr. Ury sets forth a very instructive, and inspirational, treatise on how we can be assertive, even when, and especially when, we disagree. The most overwhelming obstacle to our asserting of ourselves is our penchant to wilt under the stress of self-consciousness when in a public communicative situation. This book shows, in detail, how to overcome this barrier and to achieve what we want and need when seemingly others in positions of leverage and authority are telling us something with which we disagree. The author instructs us in how we can say, "No!" and still emerge with our dignity intact. This is one of the most pragmatically useful books I have read. A collateral benefit is the very pointedly positive feelings of supreme confidence that the reader acquires as a direct result of implementing the advisement in this book.Was this review helpful?
