Say this, Not that

_dolcedocle AlaskoIf you find yourself frustrated dealing with nosy neighbours or a constantly complaining friend you will love Say This, Not That A Foolproof Guide to Effective Interpersonal Communication by Carl Alasko.  Drawing on his more than 25 years of experience counseling couple Alasko offers actual advice on what to say when negotiating through intimate relationships, marriage and parenting. His goal is to keep couples communicating instead of attacking. He sets up common conflict “scenes” and supplies dialogue designed to avoid flight and fight reactions.

 This book is also useful for anyone who has trouble drawing boundaries and saying no. There is an entire section that deals with life’s sticky situations. Alasko has scenarios and strategies for dealing problem people you may meet at work, dating, or in your community.

This book is one of the best people-management manuals I have ever read!
