Being assertive is being able to express yourself with confidence so that you don t have to resort to being passive, aggressive or manipulative. By developing assertiveness and becoming aware of our own strengths and weaknesses, you can learn how best to modify your behaviour in social and business interactions.
Develop Your Assertiveness offers simple techniques to enable you to become more assertive. Simply reading Develop Your Assertiveness will not make you more assertive, but if you work through exercises and activities it includes, practicing face-to-face dialogue with friends, colleagues or a group, you will be able to measure your progress and reach your goal.

Good intro with practical exercises/tactics
I found this useful as an introductory book, it covers lots of different areas with some simple, practical pointers for applying it in real life.
Some of the exercises don't translate too well to audiobook so I found it helpful to bookmark and revisit these areas when I could (ie not driving)
