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

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.
changed how I approach all my interactions.
valuable information for work or home.
would recommend to any and all my friends
this book provides the kind of bordem that makes you want to cap yourself. Fortunately it discusses such realistic situations as to how to negotiate with terrorists and stopping people from committing suicide, Cause I encounter these things everyday.
Basically you say 'i bet it must be really difficult not having anyone understand the problems that you are going through...' and thats the book.
Try not to fall asleep at the wheel.
I rarely write reviews, but only half way through this book I've already used and applied some of the techniques it suggests, to great success when relating to others. Some of the information is obvious, but it still helps to hear it analyzed to understand why such techniques work with people. Other strategies for dealing effectively with people are not so obvious, and the author does a great job of explaining them clearly and giving concrete examples that make it easy to go out into the world and immediately try what he suggests.
His ideas are universally useful, whether you're dealing with a stranger you've just met, a colleague, a client, a student, a friend, a family member, a child, or your spouse. I've found some of his techniques incredibly helpful in making my relationship with my spouse more satisfying, which is a nice bonus since I bought the book hoping it could help me deal more effectively with some highly oppositional and dysfunctional students I work with as a special ed high school teacher.
I can't say enough good things about this audio. Buy it! You'll be glad!
