Sweet, simple, and to the point

This book was a nice quick listen to remind yourself of little things you may or may not do well as a listener. Perfect for a short flight.

Short and sweet.

Short and practical. I found the lessons to become a better listener easy and simple to apply. This is good for someone who is about to have an important conversation and is looking for a way to have it go well.

Common Sense

This book is common sense. Sometimes it's what is needed to be heard and It helps me to hear it. It's short and to the point.

Listening is more than hearing

Good tips on the need to avoid bias when listening to another party.
Reminders that good manners are a part of listening as well.

Rubbish-don't buy this book

If you want a book of lists and no real content then purchase this book. Honestly doesn't cover anything of worth on the subject matter. Disappointing! Not sure how this even got on her for purchase. Had to give starts to submit rating but I would not rate it any stars to be honest.
