But so many people have recommended this book to me that I looked past these things and recently ordered a used copy. For a moment, I thought I was about to be punished for relaxing my previous resistance. Beware: there is ...more
The book starts off by explaining the process of Nonviolent Communication which boils down to four steps:
1. Observe what's happening - what's really going on? What is happening or being said that you either like or dislike?
2. Identify your feelings about it - anger, joy, hopeful, inspired, lonely?
3. Figure out what need you have that is driving that ...more

As a method, the process taught inside was not enough to fill the book and the description was padded out. As literature there were lengthy quotes of poetry (of ...more
I'm not sure this was the best presentation of it, and the book is dated. The audiobook, in particular, was quite a struggle to get through. One of my pet peeves is when an author makes up stories and then claims them to be true when he tells them, pointing out how the story just so naturally fits in with his ...more
First some positives.

My key takeaways:

I really wish I'd read this 10-15 years ago. I'm sure it would've helped better navigate relationships, professionals challenges, and the process of growing up.
Even so, the nonviolent communication framework is an incredibly powerful mental tool to have at any age. The examples in the book have shown me the potential to build stronger relationships and have more profound, more helpful conversations with both others and myself.

I'm not sure any book has had as much of an impact on my ability to communicate effectively with other people. True, it's not "in my nature" but I'm hoping to fake it until I make it with this stuff, because I've noticed a marked difference with how coworkers seem to view ...more

I have just finished this book and I can see how it has positively influenced my day to day life once I started reading it. Among many books I have read slowly, reading this book has not been so slow.
More than any time in history in this modern era, we need to get exposed to ideas and practices that minimize resentment, malice, and envy. I am personally not sure if it is possible to eradicate hatred and harm from our daily circumstances in both ...more

them in the way they communicate, especially how they communicate when in conflict, will see some of their relationships improve and some conflicts resolved.
This review is for the BOOK not for NVC as such. The actual core ideas of this book I'd give 4 stars, it's the presentation in this book that I think is severly enough flawed to deserve a couple stars less.
On a positive note, the writing is ...more
