This practical, step-by-step guide will not only improve your ability to confront others, but will also help you to live a more conflict-free life.

Overstating the Obvious

No meat to the book. Offers no tools for positive confrontation. First 5 chapters are merely the author recanting obvious situations where you have opportunities for confrontation. But doesn't actually give any solutions. Not very well recorded either. You hear the author breathing and swallowing for the entire length of the book. Save your money, keep looking.

Disappointing

This book focuses on the importance of "positive confrontation" for those who feel like "wimps" in a world of "bullies." Think of Stewart Smallie; "I'm good enough, and gosh darnit people like me."

If you don't consider yourself a "wimp" and you're looking for book that discusses techniques for diffusing conflict without sacrificing objectives, check out Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends & Influence People."
