I am so grateful to have found this book right now. I have never really educated myself on emotional intelligence. This book is thorough without being overwhelming. It makes the listener feel very hopeful at the possibility of overcoming the challenges of being assertive as a woman when society and family dynamics have discouraged such skills in women. I suppose I feel kind of behind not knowing about any of these concepts (they seem so simple and to have so much potential to transform ones life) but the writing and the delivery of the book is so unpretentious, non judge mental and hopeful. It actually makes me excited to work on some of the areas of my life that I have been avoiding to hear the writer talk about it so positively and with such ease. I recently ended my relationship of 3 years because I was simple unable to ask for what I needed then I would have outbursts of anger when my life wasn't the way I wanted it - I'm hoping to learn a lot from this book and make some necessary changes.

This book does not teach the HOW of Assertiveness
However it will tell you:
WHAT Assertiveness is and is not
WHERE lack of Assertiveness originates from
WHO tends to be Assertive and who does not
WHEN an assertive person would take action
WHY I am not assertive
It never answers the HOW !!! Which is the main point of the title ! HOW !
I have been waiting for 9 chapters for the author to explain HOW to be assertive but she never answers HOW. I stopped listening after chapter 9.
I gave it 3 stars because I did learn the who, what, where, why, and when of assertiveness or non-assertiveness. But I did not learn HOW.
So, the title of the book is deceiving because it never explains the HOW.

Engaging but had to order book as you want to back over things so I found finding the right place on the audio a bit fiddly
