As a Speech Therapist, I have read many different books about how to communicate with people effectively. This is the first in a long time that offers truly useful information that I can begin using today and return to again and again. I am excited to use this information to hone the skills I need to help people feel heard and understood when they are courageous enough to come for therapy. I loved the stories used to illustrate and teach. The conversational tone of the audible edition makes it easy to listen to and absorb the ideas presented.
Yes, there is a lot about this book that makes sense, but the tools are often the opposite of what one would naturally want to do
Connect with the part of the brain that is currently being used.
Would love to have Mark come and speak at my place of employment
I wouldn't recommend this to any of my friends because I didn't find it particularly helpful and considered the communication
One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are by Ann Voskamp
The way he read was easy to listen to. He was also very good at changing his voice to make it easy to distinguish different people in a conversation without making it sound awkward.
No. It was enough by itself.
Fantastic information on how we don't listen, and how we can make a big difference in our lives as well as those around us.
Suggestions and examples
Great book for everyone
For selfish reasons I will listen again and again as the more I learn about others, the more I learn about myself and in the process I will become a more effective communicator as well as better able to understand why people do what they do, why they act the way they do and why some are more successful then others.
Take it a little at a time and ignore the hum drum tone.
Making sense of the obvious once you learn just what is obvious.
The author has a firm grasp of the obvious. The book is mostly filler.
How about some real content
Why go into a fire, when you have already been burnt.
I stopped listening to it after I realized the author had little to say.
The practical tools to help you cope with a variety of emotionally charged situations. It was pleasing to hear the professional narrator. The variety of life situations that you can apply the tools are limitless.
It helps a lot to improve your listening skills and raise your empathy and compassion to other human beings.
Thanks for the wonderful audiobook!
I have already recommended this to my friends. Easy to listen to good ole common sense people skills. I am taking counseling courses now and this is in line with what I'm learning. I have listened to it through twice and read the book. This material can improve anyones life.
I would recommend this book to anyone. It is fascinating to learn how to better communicate with others.
Practical advice with examples
I wish i could by other books like this one. I did learn a lot. I appreciate it a lot.
The psychoanalise together with the communications skills with some people profiles and how to deal with them.
He makes easy to understand the book.
No. I want to read the chapter and think about it before a new chapter to make sure i would learn it to use it in my life. I would lusten the chapter many times.
I will go over the books the author did mention on hope to find another one as good like his.
