Publisher's Description

Do you know a yes-aholic? Many women feel pressured to say yes to commitments and activities even though their time and resources are already stretched thin. Mary Byers, author of Mother Load, offers women strategies for quickly evaluating commitments, priorities, and energy levels so they can realistically decide what to do. Readers will discover how to...

  • know when "yes" isn't the logical answer
  • identify the best use of their time
  • use their gifts and talents more effectively
  • turn down "opportunities" graciously
  • have more time with their families

Whether at home or in the business world, women will be excited about these secrets to guilt-free decisions that lead to more efficient productivity and more discretionary time.

Author Bio

Mary M. Byers is a professional speaker and freelance writer. She's the author of The Mother Load and is a frequent media guest on women's topics. Mary is a former advertising director, senior-level association manager, and entrepreneur. She and her husband, Stuart, and their two youngest children live in Illinois.

How to Say No and Live to Tell About It by Mary M. Byers is a practical guide for busy women. If you lack assertiveness, and have trouble prioritizing your commitments, this book may be for you. Byers writes from her own experiences as a busy woman, offering advice and inspiration to get through the day.
Extremely short chapters make reading this thin volume a breeze—a must for the busy women Byers is writing for. Surely Byers, who is a professional speaker and freelance writer, uses some of her own tips to manage her packed schedule.
The one downfall of How to Say No and Live to Tell About It is the way Byers uses Bible verses. She quoted a few verses completely out of context and used others to apply to different topics than they were originally meant to reference. It is almost as if Byers wrote a useful book on time management, and then decided she wanted to market it to a Christian audience as an afterthought, interspersing the Bible verses later.
Despite this issue, How to Say No and Live to Tell About It makes the daunting tasks of time management and assertiveness development seem easy for even the busiest of women. Bible verses that apply to the topic at hand in the correct context would make this book more worthwhile. – Meg D. R. Tepfer, Christian Book
