Publisher's Summary

Communication in relationships is all about telling the other party about your feelings, desires, fears, frustrations, dreams, etc. However, effective communication is also about getting heard. You might spend several minutes telling your partner about something that is disturbing you, but are they really paying attention? Are your words going to have any impact on them? 

Effective communication is not only about what you are trying to say, but how and when you decide to say it. Relationships, whether between friends, parents and children, or romantic partners, do not exist in a vacuum. Relationships exist between emotional human beings who have different likes, dislikes, expectations, and past experiences. For people with so many differences to exist together in harmony, there is a need for effective communication in relationships. Unfortunately, most people think that because they talk regularly with their spouses, parents, kids, or in-laws, they are automatically communicating. Nothing could be further from the truth. 

Communication involves far more than just talking. Communication involves creating a deep connection with and understanding the other person. Good communication is a key ingredient in a good relationship, while poor communication can break an otherwise good relationship. 

Luckily, good communication is a skill like any other, which means it can be learned. In this audiobook, you will learn ways to grow a deeper connection with your friends, parents, kids, in-laws, or significant other. 

What you will find in the audiobook:  

  • Introduction to communication in relationships
  • Understand the five languages of love
  • Learn the art of small talk
  • Understand the keys to getting heard
  • Set boundaries in your relationships
  • Managing relationship conflicts through communication
  • Avoid these communication mistakes
  • What weakens and destroys relationships

Who is the target audience?

  • This audiobook is for anyone interested in fully understanding the real causes of relationship problems and how to effectively get rid of them.
  • This audiobook is for anyone interested in improving the quality of their marriage or relationship.

Well Done!

I am in school for counseling and started running my own emotional growth group so I got this book to help out. I dont know if it's because I am in school, but I felt a lot of the content in this book was self-explanatory or something people should already know..... It could be a nice read for those needing help with communication, but for me, I didn't get much out of it.

Impressive Writing

I read this book in one sitting. It's very well organized and is perfect for skimming, deep study, or easy review. Practical and straightforward, it is an instant desk-side companion for growing into the spouse, parent, co-worker, and friend you want to be and others need you to be.
