An emotionally difficult (self help) read but one that is profoundly powerful. I have recommended it to many.

Great Book that has helped me on my path to consistent truth, no matter how much it hurts or how scared I am. I am grateful to my girlfriend for recommending this to me.
Good book with down to earth, simple advice about how to communicate clearly and honestly with others. I liked it.

I hope I will also have the courage to use her advice.
I like how this book makes me feel better about my self, but some of the examples used are a little too perfect for the reak world.

When I get stressed, this book helps get me back on track for being authentic and real with myself. I return to it often.
Changed the way I speak and listen to others. I recommend this book to all my friends and professional coaching clients.
