Publisher's Summary

Asking others what we need or want is natural and desirable and is an important part of interpersonal communication. In this book we will refer to different types of requests such as: asking for favors, information, or help; asking for defective merchandise to be changed; proposing activities, etc.

Being assertive when making requests means asking for what we want, properly, while respecting the rights and feelings of others. This includes:

• Asking for things frequently, as this increases the chances of other people accepting our requests and getting what we want 

• Requesting information on issues that interest us or that we do not understand (e.g., in class or at the doctor's office) 

• Exposing what we want clearly, to facilitate the other to understand us and to reduce the chances of our message being ignored or distorted 

• Making requests persuasively, to make it easier for the other to access them 

• Considering how the other feels so as not to bother him unnecessarily 

• Respecting the right of others to reject our requests 

• Non-assertive ways of making requests: inhibition and aggressiveness 

This book will help you understand how you can effectively communicate with others and how to avoid being misunderstood.

Tips are gender neutral enough for this guy

This book will be completely relatable to both men and women. It is not by a woman for women.

The narration is clear, pleasant and has a good pace.

I liked the "big cats/ little cats" theme. The author explains not only how each behaves, but explains why one approach is better and how to deploy the big cat strategy.

Each topic concluded with the perfect blend of concept, imagery, examples and action items.

I couldn't help but think, "Oh, that's why!", "Whoops!" or "Now I know how to..." as I listened.

Some good advise, but...

There was some good advise in this book, but it was seemed mostly tailored to politicians and salesmen. Too manipulative to put to use in sincere relationships. Probably my mistake, the subtitle might have tipped me off!

A great audio book

This is a great listen and the tips that are giving actually work! It is so easy to listen and the stories are lively and very informative with out making you feel like an idiot. I like the fact that the studies are footnoted so I can go back and fact check, for my own reference, the chapters are short and give you a tip to try after each chapter is done. I highly recommend this book to anyone who deals with people on a daily, and well, lets be honest, that’s everybody.

Very well.

My only complaint is that this Audiobook as well as many others I have to listen to lately needs better proof of listening! Years ago you never saw mistakes in an Audiobook. Now I find mistakes all the time. As a result, I can handle the relationships with my community friends and people very well.
