"Don't waste your time - poor writing/narration"
Perhaps once a decade, a book comes along that transforms people's lives in a very real, measurable way. This is one of them. Crucial Conversations exploded onto the scene 10 years ago and revolutionized the way people communicate when stakes are high, opinions vary, and emotions run strong.

"There is something useful here"
A groundbreaking book about personal growth that presents a uniquely effective set of five tools that bring about dynamic change. The Tools offers a solution to the biggest complaint patients have about therapy: the interminable wait for change to begin. The traditional therapeutic model sets its sights on the past, but Phil Stutz and Barry Michels employ an arsenal of techniques - "the tools" - that allow patients to use their problems as levers that access the power of the unconscious and propel them into action.
"You Owe It to Yourself to Try"
"Crucial" conversations are interpersonal exchanges at work or at home that we dread having but know we cannot avoid. How do you say what needs to be said while avoiding an argument with a boss, child, or relationship partner? Crucial Conversations offers readers a proven seven-point strategy for achieving their goals in all those emotionally, psychologically, or legally charged situations that can arise in their professional and personal lives.
"Great communication tools!"
As a species, humans are genetically-programmed to rely on subconscious, physical cues to determine who we can trust and who we should avoid. These cues include: eye contact, facial expressions, vocal intonation, and body language. Blog posts and other written content don't convey these cues. Neither do podcasts or other forms of audio. Video is the only medium that offers our prospective clients and customers a direct view into our human side. And when our videos are hosted online, they go to work for us 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

"Not a book for listening"

"quick and to the point techniques"

Much like gravity, the law of attraction is a natural law of the universe, and one that governs every interaction you ever have. You can only attract into your experience those things that resonate with you on an emotional and or vibrational level.

What a child experiences in childhood determines that beings emotional set point; their point of attraction.
