>> Your other assignment is to get the book "When I Say No, I Feel Guilty"
>> by
>> Manuel J. Smith. It's an excellent book that's been around forever, and
>> which
>> contains much of the inspiration for this Course.
>> Another excellent book is "Mastering the Gentle Art of Verbal
>> Self-Defense" by
>> Suzette Haden Elgin. It excels at teaching how to recognize common
>> verbal
>> attacks, especially of the "dang, I think that's an attack but I'm not
>> sure
>> why," and how to not get sucked into off-topic, defensive, and pointless
>> circular arguments.
> A friend of mine recommended the book "The Gift of Fear", by Gavin de
> Becker. It talks about how many women intuit danger and ignore their
> intuitive signals, because of their social training to always be nice.
