My dad gave this to me when I was 15 years old. He said he never read it. 14 years later I am going to finish reading it.

Good advice. Simple. Useful. Includes a ton of role-playing and requires active participation to achieve this art.

Component analysis uses a “snapshot” approach to study the speaker, the message, and the listener.

Life-space analysis takes a “panoramic” view of the environment or total situation which affects the way a person” 0 likes
