There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There were also a few tips on communicating I picked up as well, like the x,y,z approach and more. One of my favorite lines in the book was: "You might think the person already knows that you applaud, admire, or appreciate them, but how are they to know for sure unless you tell them? Remove all doubt and let them know." Straightforward, but powerful.
The Action Guide included was invaluable, as well, as I begin to implement some of the tips into my daily life and with the people I love most.
I recently just completed a week long retreat on this exact topic, so I was pleasantly surprised at the completeness of the ideas in the book. The book starts essentially by addressing one's self, which is critical and convinced me the book was well worth the time.
The chapter on "Listening Blocks" alone is worth the price. Simple tools like using the 3 A's make it easy to apply the ideas in this book. The book ends with a 12 day challenge that is sure to change your life.
This is the work of a communications master with a deft touch and not a know-it-all author out to make a fast buck.
You can't go wrong with this book if you truly wish to improve your communication.
I shared this with my wife and we both are now working the 12 day challenge. I read and review almost daily the focus. It hasn't been close to good, but it has helped me check myself many times and led to very productive and meaningful communication.
My only caution is that you have to want, even just a little, to have better communication with others or this book will not provide you with a "trick" to make everything great. It takes work and introspection, but early on I found the rewards well worth continuing.

Moreover, problems and examples are for the most part focused on couples and are actually too BASIC to be serious.
There is no part explaining effective communication at work for instance, or how to manage a conflict or how to approach a stranger...
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 31, 2020
Practical steps were given to practice these steps and thereby make them permanent. I’d definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve there interactions with people, and successfully get their message across. In my line of work as a marriage counsellor this is a great resource for a couple.
