Big on Assertiveness, Not So Much on the Training
This is a relatively short book that purports to be about assertiveness training. I thought the book was heavy on the assertiveness, but not quite as focused as I would have liked it to have seen on the training aspect. The author seems to spend much of the book talking about many aspects of assertiveness, like why we may not be assertive or about how confidence impacts assertiveness, but not a lot of time until the end of the book on specific practices one can use to exude confidence and be more assertive. I didn’t find that first part of the book too terribly helpful, but I did like the practical suggestions at the end. I think if someone were having issues with assertiveness of self-confidence, they might find some of the tips and techniques of benefit.
