This might be better as a printed book. I found it hard to follow. If you listen and then put it aside, when you get back to it and the narrator says "the fifth technique is", you don't remember what the topic is. There are some good ideas, but I didn't find this worthwhile as an audiobook.
I think this is basic information how to steer a person into providing the answers and even actions that you desire, by how you pose a question or conversation to steer the other person. Its fairly passive in nature but does show you how other's words can control What You Do, so that enlightment alone is worth the credit. This is actually good to know if you feel someone is verbally controlling, and you will be more knowledgeable about this, so thus more controlling of your own actions and reactions. However I do now feel that one should attempt to control anothers behavior and concentrate on their own behaviors. Now having said that, I can see how a parent would want to help control or guide their children in this way to avoid conflicts, get them working together, etc. So, enjoy this prespective on things in this guide, notice when its being done to you, and use the knowledge carefully. Certainly an interesting prespective to learn more about. I am happy its one in my library of over 50 self help book listens.
I want to change myself at first, and then I'll try to change my family include my wife. Also, I want to change my mother.
I think if I change myself at first, everything will be changed.
