Publisher's Summary

What if you could defuse tension and create accord in even the most volatile situations - just by changing the way you spoke? Over the past 35 years, Marshall Rosenberg has done just that, peacefully resolving conflicts in families, schools, businesses, and governments in 30 countries all over the world. On Nonviolent Communication, this renowned peacemaker presents his complete system for speaking our deepest truths, addressing our unrecognized needs and emotions, and honoring those same concerns in others. With this adaptation of the best-selling book of the same title, Marshall Rosenberg teaches in his own words:

  • Observations, feelings, needs, and requests - how to apply the four-step process of Nonviolent Communication to every dialogue we engage in
  • Overcoming the blocks to compassion - and opening to our natural desire to enrich the lives of those around us
  • How to use empathy to safely confront anger, fear, and other powerful emotions

Here is a definitive audio training workshop on Marshall Rosenberg's proven methods for "resolving the unresolvable" through Nonviolent Communication.

    "Life changing"

    I felt moved at the conclusion of this book with the story of his grandmother's kindness. A very easy to understand, engaging and helpful book, and I loved the real life stories from Marshall and his experiences with others. This will be life changing for me as I go back into the world using non-violent communication, after having removed myself from it due to high stress situations that I see now that I was contributing to. Amazing wisdom.

    Story
    "Relevant to a Job Hopper/3X Married"

    My 3rd wife and I have been progressively fighting for months. I've been unemployed for six months. I couldn't say anything to her at all without any conversation nose diving. Before I was even 100% done listening to Violent Commutation, I had a 90 minute healing, positive, loving and productive conversation with my her. Not one raised eyebrow or voice. I have tried thousands of dollars worth of counseling, self help and mentoring. This not only works, but is the only approach that I can ever see working. It simply washes away your prejudice by asking what you need.

    If you twist my arm for a suggestion, I would change the sound quality so there is less mouth noises and speed up his message, which I simply did in the app.

    Brilliant!

    Thank you!

    "Very helpful for personal & professional conflicts"

    Wonderful book. I only give it a lower score for performance because the author/reader does a funny voice every time he is quoting someone else. It draws me out of the moment. This book has already helped me manage a few potential conflicts in my personal and professional life. I assigned it to one of my managers to help her talk to employees in a more healthy and helpful way.

    "Best book I've listen."
    Would you listen to Nonviolent Communication again? Why?

    Something to listen multiple times to deeply study and learn. After several great books about human communication and cooperation this goes into center of core. <3


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The lifetime studying and followed deep understanding which has basis on family tradition over generations in Marshalls family. And totally ego free presentations of the text.


    Any additional comments?

    This is someting for everyone to understand better your own needs and other people needs and create best possible cooperation with anyone and everyone.

    "I found this book to be like the Rosetta Stone"

    I found this book to be life changing. It is like the Rosetta Stone, in that so many areas of my life are able to be decoded, unpacked in a framework that works and makes sense. If I was ever in a position where I could take only one audiobook, this would be it.

    Well constructed and thought. It is nice to hear Mr. Rosenberg reading his own work, putting his emotions into the story with his own voice.

    "Good Concept, Hard To Make It A Habit AWFUL readin"
    Would you try another book from Marshall Rosenberg and/or Marshall Rosenberg?

    The book itself has a great concept. It is hard to make it an everyday habit though especially if everyone else around you doesn't do the same. You practice for a while then it gets forgotten because nobody around you does the same and you just go back to your own ways.


    What didn’t you like about Marshall Rosenberg’s performance?

    He should have picked some professional reader. It was so slow, that I almost fell asleep listening (I had to speed it up for 1.5x the speed to make it normal) and it was very "wet", you hear every breath, swallow, mouth noise in the reading. Something that I don't want to hear loud in my ears. For this reason, I don't recommend this audio book to anyone, I would advise to read the book itself. It's a good book.

    A fascinating and very simple way of looking at our approaches of how we communicate with people. It has given me a new outlook on how I interact with people now and find out what's alive in us all. I thankyou Marshall 😊

    "Potentially life changing"

    I've listened to it twice in a row. There are many other great audiobooks on audible that will enrich your life, by Thich Nhat Hanh, Eckhart Tolle, Tara Brach and many more from Sounds True, and you should check those out too. But on the subject of communication, and more widely on engaging genuinely with other people and making yours and their lives richer, this book held several epiphanies for me, and will be a reference often returned to in the future. Do listen to it!

    Undoubtedly one of the most profound learnings of my 45 year old life. If you have ever expressed your feelings and met with a defensive or aggressive response this is for you. If you want to communicate better this is for you.

    "Good introduction to NVC"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Nonviolent Communication to be better than the print version?

    Yes. It's important to hear Marshall's voice as this gives a real feeling of how one might speak in a NVC way.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nonviolent Communication?

    The scenarios that illustrate the main features of NVC


    Have you listened to any of Marshall Rosenberg’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't heard other books read by the same author.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Needing to communicate.

    "Very important intro to valuable communication skills"

    Highly recommend to anyone interested in having better relationships with anyone. Has transformed my personal and professional relationships just applying some simple techniques. Be prepared to turn the volume right up to hear this though. Marshall is great but I had to crank up volume a little higher than usual for Audible books

    I have read most of Marshall Rosenberg's books. Every one is a treasure. I have them in the Kindle and Audio format. They explain a peaceful solution to different views in different scenarios. I feel the books have been an education to me and would be to anyone else who wishes to communicate more effectively and to listen clearly. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
