This book is all about learning to stop saying yes when you can’t, you shouldn’t or you just don’t want to! The book teaches you that ‘No is a tool for change’ I found that I am what is known as “The FOMO’er” in that I will say yes only because I have a fear of what I’d be missing out on if I said no. (More on that in the next book review…) It is totally ok to say “no thanks – I have a personal policy against that” (Which is my new response for weddings. They are just not places I want to be so I am retired from them, if you don’t like that, too bad, so sad, it’s my life and if you want to force me to be uncomfortable in a situation that just shows how much of a shitty person YOU are, not me!) Included in the book are some mad libs with some fun ways to say no! (As tempting as these are, I think just a “no thanks” will suffice lol) And there are also different scenarios on how to say no based on if it is a work situation or a personal situation – all of which I think will come in very handy for me!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
