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.

Thanks for enlightening me

This is the truth: Most partners have difficulty in communicating with others. That's why books like this are a must. Any relationship or marriage will benefit from this.
