Book Review/Recommendation: When I Say No, I Feel Guilty, by Manuel Smith, Ph.D. Related Resources
Review by C.S. Clarke, Ph.D.
This book is about so much more than learning to say "no." It is a blueprint for personal freedom. It is a declaration of your right to be who you are and do what you think is right regardless of what anyone else thinks. And, you'll feel good about doing it. Dr. Smith even begins with your "Assertive Bill of Rights," -- a list so important I used to have my clients copy it and carry it with them to refer to until they really understood and practiced it.

It does more than simply tell you how act assertively; it helps you change your whole way of thinking about yourself and your actions. The publisher's hype calls the techniques in the book new and revolutionary. The book is at least 20 years old, but the publisher's hype is still so true: the techniques are bound to cause a revolution as well as a revelation in the lives of those who use them. Moreover, the ideas are as fresh and vital as when Dr. Smith first wrote them.

I started recommending this book when it was brand new. I've never stopped.
