ASSERTING YOUR SELF

Cathy Birch, How To Books

£9.99

A full summary of the underlying tensions and internal conflicts that prevent people from handling difficult situations and expressing their true wishes. Also contains interesting analysis of our 'parent/adult/child' conversations.

**

DEVELOP YOUR ASSERTIVENESS

Sue Bishop, Kogan Page

£7.99

Distinguishes helpfully between aggressive and assertive behaviour, and provides canny techniques, such as the 'broken record' method, of getting messages across to difficult people. Clear on the need to be comfortable with yourself before you can communicate effectively with others.

THE ASSERTIVENESS POCKETBOOK

Max Eggert, Management Pocketbooks

£6.99

An upbeat and practical book, although short on detail. Lots of tips and summary points, but perhaps not quite enough analysis of what is in practice a complicated issue. More of a checklist or crib than a truly authoritative study.
