A Must Read for anyone who wants to improve their relationships with others. I LOVE THIS BOOK ! I first purchased the audio version, which was very well done. So well done that i had to get the print version so that I can highlight and really study it. It is so easy to find fault with everyone else in your life regarding ability to listen, but I found this book to be invaluable when applied to MYSELF, and i have always considered myself a good listener ! This could be a marriage saver ! APPLY what you read, PRACTICE what is suggested, and life can get better…

A Terrific Choice To Understanding Listening and the Improve Listening Skills This is a very good book. It is targeted to the lay person and contains some interesting self-tests and listening excercizes. It has proven useful on a personal level to improve understanding and communications between intimates.But it deals with listening in general and can be applied in any situation in which listening is necessary. Which is about every situation imaginable.A terrific choice for this topic.
