    Genre: Self-Help Publication Date: 2017 We all have a people pleaser in us, on being asked to help, we don't even listen to the end of the sentence and may pop in with a 'yes', or in the worst case scenario, a 'maybe'. If you feel like thats you during any occasions, then you should definitely check this book out. It is all about the art of saying no. Saying 'no' not for confrontation, rather for the very purpose of reclaiming what we have been tossing around, our time, our energy, and our efforts.

    Meh. I got fed up and didn’t finish the last bit. This book should have been titled, “The art of explaining yourself to other people.” It covers 27 different excuses you can use instead of simply saying “no.” No. Just no. “Why not?” Because I said no! I’m not going to waste my time trying to convince you my answer is acceptable. You don’t have to approve of my decision, your only role here is to accept it and move on. It’s pretty simple, really.

The one thing I did like was the suggestion to provide alternative people, places, or resources to help others meet their objectives. That one is a great idea and an easy way to quickly help someone move forward without getting directly involved. That’s a paragraph though, or maybe a blog post, the rest of the book is a waste of time.

    I like the fact this book covers many different life situations where you can say NO and also remember to take care of your own priorities; however, it also sounds like a book of excuses, where you’re provided with many ways to justify your NO...you don’t need to justify or explain yourself all the time. In a nutshell, despite not agreeing a 100% with the author, reading this book helped me understand the act of saying NO from various perspectives and I appreciate that.

    This book highlights why we say "yes" when saying "no" might be a better option. It can help you develop your ability to say "no" to people in an assertive manner. It does a good job in distinguishing aggressive intent from an assertive one. But the core concept that I got from the book is that when you are saying "no" you have to be courteous, kind, respectful and unwavering. You should state your reasons clearly and own it by not saying "I can't" (if you can and don't want to).

    Definitely a worthwhile read. I didn’t realize how much of a people pleaser I have become over the course of my life. I have always felt guilty saying no to someone or declining a request. After reading this book, saying no has become A LOT easier. I was actually very surprised. It’s written in an easy to comprehend style. I could have read it straight through in one sitting but I decided to take my time with it and I’m thankful I did.

    It is indeed an art, the art of saying no. The author makes it look simple as he underlines the importance of this art in the beginning, " Saying no to people is one of the most important skills you can develop". It is an essential ingredient of a successful personality and through practice it can be developed. Damon provides an action plan for this purpose. It is indeed an art, the art of saying no.

    2.7 Stars Many of these chapters/section are repeat. For example, Part Two: Reasons We Struggle To Ssy No, the sections titled "We Desire To Help Others" and "We Want To Appear Valuable" are essentially the same. A lot of repetition. I suppose that is the point to drive the "lessons" home. Also, some of those scenarios and examples seem improbable. 2.7 Stars Many of these chapters/section are repeat.

    I struggle with saying no. I’m a people pleaser and I don’t like letting people down. Sometimes I sacrifice myself because I feel a strong sense of obligation when a friend asks me something. That's why I picked up this book. This book is good. I liked it and it's short and it's a friendly solid piece of advice. I like the author and think they did a good job writing something fairly concise and practical. It's really about putting it into practice. If I were to summarize the book in a sentence I struggle with saying no. I’m a people pleaser and I don’t like letting people down. Sometimes I sacrifice myself because I feel a strong sense of obligation when a friend asks me something. That's why I picked up this book. This book is good. I liked it and it's short and it's a friendly solid piece of advice. I like the author and think they did a good job writing something fairly concise and practical. It's really about putting it into practice. If I were to summarize the book in a sentence it would be: It's ok to say no and to prioritize yourself and your time as long as you do it honestly and candidly. NOTES FROM READING: Are you a natural-born people pleaser? Do you prioritize other people over yourself? No one will protect your priorities. It’s up to you to do so. You can learn to say no with grace Step 1. Be Assertive. Being assertive means expressing your needs and wants in the face of opposition. It doesn’t mean being dominant or rude. It’s declaring your point of view and not feeling you need others' approval or validation. At its basic form, it’s candid conversation. Assertiveness is not aggressive. Assertiveness is respectful. Aggressive is belligerent. Saying no can feel egocentric, mean, and cold-hearted. We don’t want to offend anyone. We don’t want to appear selfish. We desire to help others. We want to be liked. We want approval. We want to appear valuable. We want a feeling of status. You must care for yourself Recognize and Overcome the impulse to say yes. Recognize your motivation for saying yes. Be candid in your rejection and use the word “because” If you know you’re going to say no, don’t stall for time. It will lead the other party on and delay something you are going to do. It also opens up the door to negotiation. It’s a worse way of handling things than being candid. You are not responsible for other people’s reactions. As long as you are respectful, courteous and civil then you are not responsible for their reaction. Question Method & Test: 1. Describe assertiveness in the context of the book. 2. How is assertiveness different from aggressiveness? 3. List some negative feelings that saying no can illicit and describe a counter argument to them. 4. Describe the “because” method. 5. There are 10 strategies for saying no in the book. List and describe 6.

    'When you give in to temptations, you become a slave to your impulses.' Being able to say no is something that doesn't come naturally to many of us. With that respect, this book was pretty insightful. It helps you understand why do we instinctively say yes to things. The author talks about different reasons and scenarios from everyday life where one can't say no. Although after a point of time, it tends to get redundant. Nevertheless, it was an interesting read.

    A short read to remind you how to take your time back in your own hands ...sometimes even by saying no to your own self. While some of the things mentioned are ingrained in some cultures , and needed in others - the key is to combine saying no with the right message and a courteous note to ensure you control your own time ..

    Short, excellent read (150 pages large font, huge margins). I have practiced the art of saying no already so I can attest that this book is on point. An example, I recently had a colleague ask me to take on more work than what was at all possible. She was persistent and pushy (nearly demeaning) about my inability to say yes. I stood my ground, let her know in no way shape or form can I take on the work because I am already scheduled for 75 hours of work that week (my office considers 75 to be on Short, excellent read (150 pages large font, huge margins). I have practiced the art of saying no already so I can attest that this book is on point. An example, I recently had a colleague ask me to take on more work than what was at all possible. She was persistent and pushy (nearly demeaning) about my inability to say yes. I stood my ground, let her know in no way shape or form can I take on the work because I am already scheduled for 75 hours of work that week (my office considers 75 to be on the high end), and sought out some alternative co-workers I knew (but whom she didn't know) to assist her. In retrospect this was one of the best "no's" I've ever given someone. She not only backed down on her pushiness to get me to work but was also extremely thankful for my poised seeking of alternatives - in retrospect, she was merely very stressed and did not mean to be pushy or demeaning - but saying no harshly would have clouded any semblance of being able to get what we both wanted and needed. This is one of the strategies (if I recall strategy #6 or #9 from this book) for dealing with saying no to a co-worker (or really anyone else) but doing so diplomatically, increasing your confidence, and even making allies and building goodwill at work (or elsewhere). This book outlines strategies like this, and more. Great read.
