In it, Nathaniel Branden -- a pioneer in the self-esteem movement -- answers four questions: What is self-esteem? Why is it important? What can we do to raise our levels of self-esteem? And what role do others play in influencing our self-esteem? He also addresses six self-esteem cornerstones in turn: the practices of living consciously, self-acceptance, self-responsibility, self-assertiveness, purposefulness and integrity.
Branden outlines steps for success in each of these areas, and he cautions that the task of sustaining them falls on each individual. It put into perspective that self-esteem isn't the prize at the end of treatment or work -- it's the actual work you do. Yes, you probably do. Yep, even if you're a dude. Maybe especially if you're a dude.

Many of these book delve into that big question: Sigmund Freud thought a lot about it, and decided that it's because joking allows us to talk about our unconscious desires in ways that we normally can't.

Indian Comedians Tell You The Must- Read Books On Stand-up Comedy
But it's super interesting and different, an it's an important slice of joke theory history. Former SNL writer Jack Handey is one of the best joke writers who ever lived, and his only novel, The Stench of Honolulu , is dense with one-liners, callbacks, and runs. I love to read a few random pages of this book before I get down to my own writing, since Handey's timing and pacing and voice is so inspiring and strong. Another exercise I do with the book?
Sitting down and typing out a page of it word for word. I swear it works to teach you joke structure! I also have every other book that Handey has written in my library.

From probably the most famous and successful comedy nerd out there comes a very big and long book of interviews with famous comedians: Sick In The Head.
Like Mike Sacks' books, they offer mountains of advice, ideas, and theories from the people we look up to most, intertwined with stories from their lives and careers.
These interviews can be seriously inspiring in moments when you feel like giving up, and they can be hugely insightful if you're stuck on a project or suffering from writer's block. Apatow also has another book called I Found This Funny , which is a super-diverse compilation of short pieces of humor that he's liked over the years. This slim volume explores concepts about humor through math as well as how we can apply formulas to funny things.
If you're not a complete geek, you can skip this one, but if you're interested in thinking about some of the more quantitative aspects of jokes and humor, you'll appreciate what it has to say.
But also like Toolbox , it contains tons of lessons about what makes things funny and how to develop those ideas into full-fledged narratives. Kaplan is a long-time teacher of comedy, and it shows in this book, which is structured well and filled with examples from real scripts.

There is a very valuable discussion to help me manage them as well as get my siblings more involved.

Easy to follow and understand.
Insightful information. Practical suggestions. Realistic tools to help you develop effective assertiveness in verbal and nonverbal communication. May 30, Kendel Christensen added it.
Quick read for the basics A simple but powerful introduction to asserting yourself. The emphasis on mindset and relationship with oneself was particularly illuminating.
Jan 05, Paul Preston rated it really liked it. This book was filled with a lot of good information that everyone already knows. Some of us just need the push and reminders that we are worthy of respect and this book brings how to get that to light.
Definitely needs to be read again.
Aug 19, Aliya rated it liked it. Really liked the assertive person's bill of rights, but they are excerpted from another website. Original content is helpful too. Apr 01, Layla A. The first chapter of this book was good. The Bill of Rights was useful. Other than that though, the book was not that great. The body language tips are general ones you read about everywhere. The other chapters we're all examples of situations and how you could react to them assertively.
While a few examples are helpful to let you know what to do in a real life situation, most of the chapters in this book were examples. The book hadn't much substance. May 31, BookChick rated it it was amazing.
Modeling behavior helps me to learn and she gives example responses for various situations to get you started which I am grateful for. I also found great benefit in the affirmations as well. If you struggle in this area this is the perfect book for you!
Oct 25, Justin Sanders rated it really liked it. The premise of the book is ok but it does not seem to get down to the raw nature that is needed when being assertive. This is for tame situations and does not dig into when things go red and you really have to be an assertive savage.
I did take away a few key concepts like body language and taking time before directly responding. Its just not directly more on the charged end on the spectrum. I will have to keep searching. Jan 16, Ray Watson rated it it was amazing. I have been told to speak up and stop mumbling for years.

This book transformed my life. I highly recommend. Dec 25, Katarina rated it liked it Shelves: I tend to be shy and passive when it comes to conflict, so I thought this book would be helpful.
And indeed, it was. However, some chapters were less interesting or applicable for me. Still, I learned some good lessons. Jun 17, Crystal Star rated it it was amazing. Listened to this on Audible.
Informative and empowering. Helpful to those who struggle with passivity, and want to become more respectfully assertive.
Assertiveness: How to Stand Up for Yourself and Still Win the Respect of Others
This is a book that one can return to several times to allow the concepts to sink in. People are encouraged to observe, practice, and keep trying until one improves. There is a learning curve, but can be mastered in time. We are all worth it!
