A great book! What a gifted writer!

This work is brilliant, timeless, and a must read for those who are hungry for answers. Today, more than ever, we as a people need leaders like Mr. Don Cheek who are willing to speak out in honor of the countless lives of those who have lived, fought, suffered and died so that we could live our freedoms.

It's 2010 and we still have no notable leaders who have the heart to come forward. No focus, goals, direction or voice... We are priming ourselves not only to repeat the past, but to stay in this perpetual mental, emotional, financial & economic imprisonment... It seems as though we are worse off today than when we were in physical chains. What a travesty... What a shame... Respect your liberties! Respect your freedom! My hope is that schools, libraries, organizations, companies, non profits, and our government leaders and officials take note and call upon you for guidance with respect to the state of race relations and civil rights in America today. Thank you for your book and thank you for speaking out...

I look forward to more of your speaking tours, TV appearances, radio interviews, for more spectacular and insightful books from you and to seeing you gain more notoriety as one of America's most informative, important and forward thinking leaders of today.

This book has been revised, but it is timeless and even more relevant today...

Essential for understanding the political context of assertiveness training. Most assertiveness writing fails to consider these issues.

Cheek's book is still relevant and a must for any serious counseling, psychology, or human services professional.

I LOANED THIS BOOK OUT TO SOMEONE MANY YEARS AGO AND IT WAS NEVER RETURNED, I WAS TOLD TO CONTACT AMAZON AND I WAS ABLE TO GET THE BOOK. IT IS A BOOK THAT I STRONGLY FEEL MOST PEOPLE WOULD GET A GREATER KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OUT OF AS WELL AS A BETTER INSIDE TO BLACK/WHITE ISSUES.

Very interesting and unique book, I recommend this book to all people no matter what race you are, it gives you an understanding of how to be an assertive person in this society. This book has opened my mind to understand the African American culture and even my own, I will use some of his techniques to my own benefits thank you Dr.Cheek well written book.

This book is very interesting. Times have changed since it was written but it still has practical points that are valid today.

In his book, the Assertive Black...Puzzled White - A Black Perspective on Assertive Behavior, Dr. Donald Cheek, boldly and bravely confront an issue with such honesty and integrity that very few today would dare to go in this politically correct society. This work should be required reading for every elected official, every religious leader, every educator and every student.

As America is the most wonderful place to live on the earth, at the same time, it would be easy to miss, ignore or even downplay the issue of race and the misconception that are associated with diversity. Black people live in a world, under circumstances and pressures, viewed from an Afro-centric perspective that the average White person has never been exposed to and could possible understand.

Dr. Cheek should be applauded for his love for his country and for his contribution through this book to help bring to surface what cannot be known naturally, and what many don't even feel is necessary to explore because Black people should be happy with the way things are and the fact that they have the privilege to be in this great country. This book is enlightening for those who have open minds and it bridges the understanding gap, enabling those reading it to tap an insight and understanding that should move them to compassion for their dark fellow citizen of African descent.

I highly recommend the Assertive Black...Puzzled White - A Black Perspective on Assertive Behavior by Dr. Donald Cheek.

If you want to find a place where blacks outnumber whites and other races by a huge margin and have no problem being assertive, try New Orleans.
It is not just residents but public officials and people in power.
The rest of the US may be behind in this respect, but you can't tell if you live here.
