The thirtieth anniversary (eighth) edition of the most widely recommended assertiveness training book helps readers step-by-step to develop more effective self-expression. Emphasizes equal-relationship assertiveness -- not the all-too-common "me-first" attitude. Packed with detailed procedures, examples, and exercises. The eighth edition is completely revised and updated, and includes new material on what it means to be assertive in the 21st century, living in a multicultural society, making the decision to express yourself assertively, appropriate anger expression, and treatment for social anxiety and phobia.

With over one-and-a-quarter million copies sold, YOUR PERFECT RIGHT ranked 5th among all self-help books in a national survey of psychologists, as reported in AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHOTHERAPY, PSYCHOLOGY TODAY, and THE NEW YORK TIMES. It ranked 12th among the "best self-help books" in a national survey reported in THE AUTHORITATIVE GUIDE TO SELF-HELP BOOKS (1994).

From the Author:

FROM THE AUTHORS...

Learning to make assertive responses will reduce the anxiety you may feel in dealing with others. Even such physical complaints as headaches, general fatigue, stomach disturbances, rashes, and asthma may be related to a failure to develop assertive behavior. Assertiveness can help you avoid such symptoms. Research has shown that, by developing the ability to stand up for yourself and do things on your own initiative, you can cut down your stress and increase your sense of worth as a person. You can be healthier, more in charge of yourself in relationships, more confident and capable, more spontaneous in expressing your feelings. And you'll likely find yourself more admired by others as well.

Whether your goals are personal, social, job-related, or world-changing, you will find a careful reading-and-practice approach to these ideas and procedures will help you to develop more effective self-expression and healthier relationships.

Hundreds of research studies have proved the value of assertiveness training, and countless thousands of individuals who had trouble expressing their feelings have achieved greater self-fulfillment by following this program. We believe you can find similar help here. We are especially pleased that thousands of therapists have recommended this book as helpful reading for their clients. In three separate surveys of practicing professionals, this book has consistently received the highest rating among assertiveness books, and has been among the most-often recommended of all self-help books.
