I have listened to it 4 times now and will continue listening because there is so much valuable information you can use in many situations to connect with another human being.
The world would truly be a much better place if more people knew and used the information in this book.
I like his use of the pronouns "she" and "her" instead of the overused "he" and "him".
Mr Dixon brings the examples to life. It is so easy to listen to and helps you retain the information.
I was inspired by Dr. Goulston's integrity in giving credit to so many other people when he used a tip or idea from someone else. It's one thing to give credit to somebody's published works but to give credit to someone else for something they said shows me that Dr. Goulston is a person you can trust.
This only proves to me he is about credibility and not manipulation.
Before I downloaded the audio I browsed the reviews and noticed some mixed feelings. I think those that have made neutral or negative comments are really missing the point. It's kinda funny actually because they are exhibiting the exact behavior of those that don't listen.
I wondered if the book would just be a bunch of artificial scripts or information on how to really listen. I was pleasantly surprised how much genuine, honest information this book has on becoming a better listener and a better human being. It reminded me of Steven Covey's story about the current personality almost artificial based literature verses the older principle based literature he discovered. This may be a current publication but the information is based on timeless principles.
In today's "Information Age" the listening skills this book will help you develop will only put you in the front of the line in effectiveness.
For those who are serious about making a connection and moving forward with other people.
