Listening is more important than talking

I like this book because it covers different ways that people can listen. We go over the myths and the don'ts. They had good tips and I recommend this book to anyone who deals with clients or wants to get better. When you listen to the people with wisdom. You get better.

Excellent, short listen

I don’t know how helpful this book is for people who intuitively know some of this... but as a person with anxiety and a tendency to anticipate this book presented simple steps for quieting my mind to be a better listener. I find myself retaining information from conversations at work and with friends/family much better. Easy read, actionable. Facilitates self-awareness and growth.

Empathetic Listening

This short book summarizes why you should care about empathetic listening and some useful advice for implementing it in practice. The main target audience is the layman and can listen to it in around an hour. I agree with the significance of the concepts that the author describes.

Well done

I was so happy to see the title and subject of this book and couldn’t wait to read it. I applaud the author for an excellent job writing about a subject so needed and necessary in our world today. Effectiveness communications skills are so lacking in our society,
and spread the word and teach better communicating and listening abilities.

Excellent book

This isn't your typical figuring out how to make a discussion book. The writer composes essentially and is empowering. I presently have a superior comprehension of conversational aptitudes and am putting to utilize what I realized here. My solitary objection is that this book, just as numerous others I have perused of late, needs better editing! Quite a while back you never observed errors in a book. Presently I discover botches constantly.
