Growing up, I did not learn any of these principles. They make do much sense in the way they are laid out in this book. I will be re-reading it several times so it really sinks in. It’s going to be a lifelong resource that I keep handy! Many thanks to Darlene Lancer!

I liked and appreciated this succinct summary and overview of communication – plus it gave a couple of simple examples. At the price I felt this a worthwhile purchase. Putting the simple processes described into actual action is a much bigger project!

5.0 out of 5 stars So totally needed this…September 22, 2015 By Angelica Collon
On the road to becoming more assertive…this was my first read and I’ve really enjoyed this. My painful interactions with my m.i.l. Motivated me to finally figure out what was wrong with me…I have 90% non-assertive behavior. Learnt from my Mom, my only real parent and role-model. My next project is to read author’s book on Self-Esteem.

Short and direct. A nice quick informational read that could help even the most assertive learn a thing or two. Well worth the minuscule amount it was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended. Useful advice for setting and communicating boundaries August 21, 2014 By Linda Diane, Medical Writer
Darlene Lancer’s e-book, How to Speak Your Mind – Become Assertive and Set Limits, fills a critical need. Assertiveness is an essential skill for making reasonable requests in relationships and the workplace. It also helps us avoid being pushed, coaxed, and manipulated, or merely saying yes when we would rather say no. Lancer begins with the critical distinction between assertiveness and aggressiveness. She emphasizes that assertiveness, while firm and positive, is also honest, courteous, and respectful. The author explores the reasons why many people fear or avoid being assertive. She then explains how, contrary to people’s fears, assertiveness benefits one’s relationships, job or profession, and personal health. This book provides abundant detail about the elements of assertiveness. It also offers many specific and practical techniques for effective assertive behavior and communication.

What attracted me to this book was the phrase “Set Limits.” Setting boundaries and limits has been among the most important areas of development for me over my adult life. This book affirmed the importance of boundaries and limits, an important reinforcement when I am faced with people who would prefer that I had looser boundaries and fewer limits. It also offered practical and useful advice for setting, communicating, and maintaining boundaries and limits. I highly recommend this book. Potential benefits include healthier relationships, success in business, and improved emotional health.

I found this little e-book to be extremely helpful. The author laid out, step-by-step, simple guidelines for speaking directly and simply in conversation and interaction. She goes over why we don’t express our feelings and thoughts concisely or directly, then lays out a simple program for change: first spend time observing ourselves, our interactions, when we don’t speak our truth. Write these interactions down, then practice. She gives guidelines for practice in concise terms. Very helpful for better communication in work and intimate relationships.
