    "Avoid No More"

    The Coward's Guide to Conflict is an excellent book for anyone who loves to avoid conflict. There are engaging exercises and good examples about a variety of avoidance methods. The author gives solid and proven techniques that will help you change your way of dealing with conflict. There are a plethora of opportunities to explore your relationship with conflict.

    Unfortuntaely, the book is read too fast. It's hard to reflect on my relationship with conflict while listening to Rolland Lopez speed through exercises. Though his voice and diction are fine, the speed is just too fast. Listening to this type of psychological/coaching book requires the listener to become truly involved with the material, and that's pretty tough when the questions and concepts go by quickly.

    Nevertheless, if you avoid conflict like I do, you will enjoy and benefit from listening to this book. If you take notes and pause to consider questions, you may reap benefits that will change your life. And if you enjoy a good fight, you might be able to improve your style of handling conflict - making the world a better place for all of us. Excellent!

    "Pretty Good"

    I can see how this book could empower some people. I just wasn't one of them. True it would be best to listen while not in your car. If your are looking to understand why you can't face conflict this might be a good one for you. I knew why, but was hoping for more technique one how to overcome. If you have any doubts as to whether or not to get it, I say go for it.

    "Just get the book... "

    I should have heeded the words of other reviewers that said this book is better read than listened to. While the content is sound and interesting, the narrator's lack of vocal range makes the reading monotone and hard to listen to. I found myself tuning out the book because of the lack of narrative execution. Also, , as others as stated, the pacing is very quick and doing the exercises while driving is not advisable. I think the book has a lot to offer, but the audiobook being abridged lacks.

    "Not for everyone"

    This book does cover conflict from many of its sources.

    I bought this with somebody else in mind so am not really in the best position to say how useful it would be if you really needed it.

    It is in a workbook style so it might be more useful in the book form, rather than the audiobook.

    That said, it does contain some sound wisdom and will help anybody with conflict problems to address them. Be warned though, it will be a lot of work.

    "Not Car-Friendly"

    I should have listened to the other review. The exercises, while valuable, are not easy to do in the car.
