The Assertive Woman
New, completely revised and updated edition of one of the most powerful self-help books ever. The Assertive Woman is the original assertiveness book for women, first published in 1975 and updated through four editions, with new material on personal relationships, assertiveness in the workplace, sexual harassment, domestic violence, and more. This outstanding resource for women is packed with personal vignettes, exercises, step-by-step procedures, and tips on expressing yourself with co-workers, lovers, family, friends, and strangers. The Assertive Woman debunks the tired old myths and stereotypes of women bosses, stay-at-home moms, and "bully broads," and superwomen, and presents a refreshing, positive alternative. Written in an easy-to-read, upbeat, motivational style, with warm, personal, and practical guidance for every woman who wants to improve herself, restore balance, say no and draw the line with confidence, make the right choices, and face up to new challenges and changes in her life.

Congratulations to Stanlee Phelps and Nancy Austin on the 4th edition of their book, "The Assertive Woman". They've been at it since 1974 (I've gotten each edition and referred them to my clients during my 30 years as a career and management consultant and coach.) This revised and updated edition continues to be a timely, relevant and reliable resource for women as they navigate the landmines on their assertiveness journeys. The book offers real-world examples, communication guidelines, self-awareness exercises and lessons learned in the authors' work with corporate and entrepreneurial women. (And I believe the solid advice and information is valid for all women of all ages regardless of their work status.... especially young women in high school and college who are just starting their assertiveness journeys.) I found the 14 page Resource Guide an especially helpful tool as it includes additional books, articles, newsletters, videos, websites, and professional associationsas available for any woman to find what she needs to support her in her assertiveness journey. I also loved the cover. Every photo has an interesting story behind it to convey that one size of assertiveness does not fit all! And it shows how far we've come.....
