Since reading the book, I have become more dedicated to understanding how I can improve my relationships by just applying even a few of the guides in the book. It outlines why we fail at good communication, how to improve, and gives lots of examples that make it all clear. I also checked out their site listed on the back of the book, and it has a bundle of further resources. Just a bit overwhelmed by how much there is to learn...
After reading this book, I have finally learned to recognize FAKE talk in myself and in others. Now I know how to get the results I want by getting right to the heart of the issue -- no more avoiding, candy-coating, or beating around the bush. REAL talk for the win!
Read this book and soon you'll be a former fake talker, too!
John Stoker digs deep into the things that get in the way of meaningful and productive conversations, rather than passing off a generic framework as the solution of the day. And he does so with ease, with humor, with examples, and with the right dose of theory and practical suggestions.
If you want your conversations to work, read this book! Then read it again and refer to it often!
