This is the perfect audio book for commuting and learning communications skills at the same time. I was done with it in a week and am applying it already. I plan on listening again each month to get it down to a science.
It seems that the authors want to tell you some great revelation pertaining to difficult topics. I was hoping foot some new top or trick but honestly I didn't hear one. it's not that I'm an expert but I found this material to be rather basic.
a Tech Exec who loves the stories about what could be and what should have been. Mixed with histories told from an outside perspective.
Yes, this is a great example based tome on improving your interpersonal skills.
This is not all theory, the authors have a researched and documented through example way of presenting exercises on how to improve your communications.

pool of shared thinking, that there are two parties trying to get to a mutual and better than current state, of doing/being, like a triangle.
This was Nice and well Put together i loved the last chapters the authors but every thing together By the end of this Book u will be smiling and telling ur self i Knew all of this,
But the Fact is that NOW u r looking for it and u know it makes it EZ for u to think u Knew all this Info
At least this is How i Felt .
I have enjoyed my time with this Book and have Benefited from it :)
I found this book helpful. The authors had realistic suggestions in how to recognize and handle difficult conversations.
The authors at best had enough material for an article, but they dragged it out into a book anyway. They use the tired business-book format of introducing their own jargon and assorted lists of key principles in an effort to make their ideas seem more than they are. This is painful as an audiobook. You could glean all of the value by scanning the hard copy in half an hour.
