There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
As you could imagine, communicating with everyone was very challenging.
Not to mention the Complexity and Stress of today's Fast-Paced lifestyle, just adds to the problem.
This was a recipe for disaster... on the way to becoming another statistic (Fatherless children with a stressed mother).
I'm only 60% through this book and already it's CHANGE MY LIFE!
I'm able to understand (listen to) everyone and convey a better message through the techniques in this book.
My Wife - who doesn't know - has been able to keep a better composure as a result.
She's skeptical about Psychiatric Techniques, so it's been hard for me to share the details outlined in this book.
All in all, I highly recommend "Just Listen" for ANYONE who wants to know How To Get Through to People.
THANK YOU DR. MARK GOULSTON!
The author, Dr Goulston (evidently a true pro in psychiatry, counselling, negotiation, crises intervention, etc) presents his principles and techniques in a straightforward manner, without bogging the reader down with technical jargons. The ideas and techniques that he presents are well illustrated with real-life examples that help the read to grasp and practice.
In all, it is a small book that packs a great deal of highly useful information and suggestions. It is also fun to read. It is highly recommended for anyone interested in improving interpersonal communication.
