Editorial Reviews


"Chapter Five, Key 2: Emphatic Listening Skill, is my favorite. It is one of the clearest presentations of how to show understanding/empathy that I've ever read. This short book is a jewel, a resource, an important contribution to the growing literature on interpersonal competence. This will be the most useful book you will read this year. Get it, read it, study it, cherish it, and use the skills anywhere and everywhere."
Bill Coffin, Marriage Education Specialist (retired), Administration for Children and Families; Relationship & Marriage Educator; Husband, Father, Grandfather
"This is an excellent guide on how to practice empathy in relationships, showing why it's so important and how to do it. I think that if everyone read this book and practiced the skills we would have a better world. This should be required reading for anyone getting married, since these skills are so essential for a successful marriage. If you want to improve your marriage, or all your relationships for that matter, this is the book to get!"
Debbie Preece, Marriage Coaching, LLC
"What's the secret of being seen as a great spouse, parent or friend? A great supervisor, employee, teacher, salesperson--any professional? It's listening with empathy, really listening... This little gem of a book reveals the secret of developing this priceless skill. Simple, practical, and effective."
John R. Williams, Licensed Mental Health Counselor; Marriage & Relationship Educator
"The communication skills Bento Leal teaches have helped me listen and speak with greater empathy to both my loved ones and my clients, and as a result have continued to strengthen my relationships in my life and work. I highly recommend it. "
Don Sardella, President, Strategic Consultant & Business Coach, Institute for Leadership Development, LLC
"A handy guide for all readers who want to learn, practice, and improve on their communication skills and relationships bit by bit, day by day. The real-life examples make it easy for readers to connect with the author's concepts and words."
Readers' Favorite Book Reviews
"This book is a critical addition to the library of anyone who has relationships (hint: all of us). If there is one thing that undermines all of our relationships it is poor or lack of communication. The chapter on "Listening Blocks" alone is worth the price. The book ends with a 12-day challenge that is sure to change your life. Highly recommend."
Ray Brehm, Bestselling Author of The Author Startup and several other books

From the Author

"I thoroughly enjoyed writing this book. It was a labor of love involving a lot of thoughtful consideration for more than a year. I'd get intensely busy with it for a few days, and then back off for sometimes a few weeks, and then I'd get back at it again with renewed inspiration, fresh ideas and determination. This is how it was for a full 13 months. But my hope during the entire writing process was that the final result would be something succinct, readable, and most importantly doable that could help people grow themselves and their relationships. That was the main motivation and driving force that kept me going. I'm very happy with how it turned out and for the lives it is touching. I hope you enjoy reading this book and find these communication tools to be helpful in all aspects of your life." ~ Bento

Always the perfect gift

1.0 out of 5 stars Is this really it?
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 31, 2020
I love books especially psychology, communication and any book that can aid my personal development. I also never give bad book reviews because I often assume it must have been me. I’d also add that it’s rare for me to abandon a book especially one as small as this. But take it from me, this book will not teach you anything, nothing - nada. Like so many I’m shocked at the price but even more surprised that this is a published book. God i feel bad for saying it but it really goes to show that anything can get published. How on earth this book received those positive reviews is also extremely baffling. There is no way these people are reviewing the same book i have in front of me. As many have said the book is razor thin but worse still is the lack of real content even the stories are pointless. It’s a utterly useless book, save your money and time. Just because people think they’re experts does not make them one.
