This book was eye opening when I first read it. It helped me to identify other people's defense mechanism verbally and realize that that it didn't mean I was right, in the case of flattery, or wrong. I lost my copy and am pleased to have this on hand as a reference to try and dissect a difficult relationship at work or in the community. It helps me to better understand how to more effectively communicate.

This book was very helpful as I am a bit of a pushover and kinda let people walk on me. I have thus learned how to use words {kindely} to let people know how i fell. I'd think this would be a great book for teens who have problems saying "no", or expressing themselves, or someone else like me who just hated to dissappoint people by saying no.
