it was ok
bookshelves: partly-read, no-longer-interested, to-read

I'm giving this book only 2 starts and that's mainly due to the way it is excellently written, very easy to read without getting stuck in overly complex sentences. Unfortunately that's the only good thing I can say about the book. This is the first book I've read (partly read in this instance) on NVC, and to be honest, the anecdotal conversations are cringe worthy and I know of no situation where they would work. Talking to anyone in that way instantly gets their heckles up, it needs to be far more natural, not structured responses and cutting people off when you are "bored" with what they are saying. I'm sure this has it's place in a psychiatrists life, but not every day people trying to improve their life with others. I've got anther book on NVC to read, I just hope that one is a lot better!
