I have ready few books that have truly changed the way I interact with the world. This is one of them. I read this book in the mists of a messy divorce and it really helped to clear things up. It showed me that I was going about conversations in completely the wrong way. I wish I had found this sooner in my life. It would have changed so much.
It will teach you how to interact with people when it matters most. Whether its partners, children, parents, manager, boss, strangers or friends you are most likely messing up your conversions and not even noticing it.
I can not recommend this book enough. I recommend it to everyone who asks me about books or if I think it can help them. Its also available on audiable. I have both. However you get it, get it.
This book is paired amazingly with Chimp paradox. These 2 book are my killer combo recommendation. Once you have finished it, take some time to reflect deeply. You'll be surprised what you discover with your new knowledge.
For the MBTI framework believers, specifically those of which are classified as INTJ, this book is an absolute MUST.
The book presents the unfortunate situation we all live in, which is the inability of people to speak their mind without it having an impact on the way they are seen. Hence becomes a practical tool for people management.
Fortunately there is a CEO who recognises this madness and inefficiency and has built his company based on "Radical Transparency"....top 5 biggest hedgfund in the world....Bridgewater associates.
The book has had a profound effect on how I approach negotiation both at work and in personal life. In our world cheap advice is abundant and too many are looking for a bag of tricks to make others do what they want. This book is very different: it starts with explaining how negotiations work in principle and why having a fixed goal is detrimental to the success.
Definitely recommend the book and they have some great materials online too. Take your time to go through it, really valuable if you find yourself struggling to have some difficult conversations with people in your life or in work.
This book is very interesting. Setting out coping strategies and communication skills in a very clear manner, using examples to illustrate points makes it very easy to understand and put into practice.
This is an incredibly helpful book. It deals particularly with how to handle emotionally charged conversations, where one or both of you is upset or angry or doesn't want to speak up. As I was reading this, I could only think of one person in my life that I know who actually does all of these things in conversation, and maybe one other person who's decent...meaning I really think the majority of people would benefit from reading this book, even if you don't think you're especially bad at dialogue. I bought this book because I was struggling to phrase things well when I was offering criticism -- it came off too attackingly -- and this has given me so much to think about and so much helpful advice. I think this would be especially helpful to parents and couples. Most of the examples are aimed at people in their 30s-50s, but it really seems like the sooner the better for reading it. The main message of the book was of how to be both honest and respectful -- to not avoid conversations you need to have until they're super big, to be respectful and listen but also to say what needs to be said in a way that the other person can hear without becoming defensive, and these are lessons that will help you with any relationship, including roommates, acquaintances, siblings, etc.
There are also links in this book to videos of example conversations -- I'm on to check those out next, as my response to finishing the book was sadness that there wasn't more! I think my dialogue skills have already improved in only a couple weeks of reading the book, and I will reread this going forward to help me as struggles arise.
