Short and sweet

Such an easy and direct self-improvement book. It helped me realise I am not as good a listener as I first thought and had left me feeling enthusiastic about implementing the strategies suggested as they were so practical and uncomplicated. Recommend this.

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.

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.

Wonderful quick listening.

Straight to the point. No big words to follow. Great advice. Short enough for my husband and I listened to it together. Very upbeat.

Short and Helpful

This is a short book that neatly summarises what stops people from being effective listeners and provides practical strategies to improve one's listening skills. It explains why our desire to be listened to is stronger than our desire to be a genuine listener, why this holds people back from being better listeners, and provides a neat and simple suggestion of how this can be overcome.

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.
