Description

Zen master Thick Nhat Hanh, best-selling author of Peace is Every Step and one of the most respected and celebrated religious leaders in the world, delivers a powerful path to happiness through mastering life's most important skill: How do we say what we mean in a way that the other person can really hear? How can we listen with compassion and understanding?

Communication fuels the ties that bind, whether in relationships, business, or everyday interactions. Most of us, however, have never been taught the fundamental skills of communication - or how to best represent our true selves. Effective communication is as important to our well-being and happiness as the food we put into our bodies. It can be either healthy (and nourishing) or toxic (and destructive).

In this precise and practical guide, Zen master and Buddhist monk Thick Nhat Hanh reveals how to listen mindfully and express your fullest and most authentic self. With examples from his work with couples, families, and international conflicts, The Art of Communicating helps us move beyond the perils and frustrations of misrepresentation and misunderstanding to learn the listening and speaking skills that will forever change how we experience and impact the world.

nice!

Worth reading! I recommend. I particularly liked the idea of the five mantras which are actually quite "normal" sentences but calling them Mantras really underlines their importance and almost sacred value, which I quite like.

Decent short-ish listen for connecting with others

The narrator is very good (as this book represents teachings he readily follows). The greatest emphasis here is on mindfulness, understanding suffering and careful consideration (with empathy and reason) that others are also human.

The book is arranged into 9 subsections that range from <10min to 20-30min which can make listening to the chapters convenient if you only have relatively short time slots available. That said, I had to return to this book after months of lapse due to getting distracted with 'more interesting' audiobooks.

While this book does emphasize the importance of listening and present some helpful 'mantras', these mantras represent the bulk of the strategies talked about.

If you are interested in books like this, I would further recommend "Just Listen" which goes into more depth about dealing with different types of people and different types of situations that this book does not address.

Helps to be reminded how we use words

Amazing book :) compassionate communication can be the key to so many tough conversations, but it reminds us to think before we speak

Slow start but good message

Would you listen to The Art of Communicating again? Why?

I plan to listen to parts of it again. The six mantras are very good. I've tried some of them and they seem to work.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed the practicality of the book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

While suffering is not unique to Buddhism I do think that the emphasis on the recognition of one's own suffering, the suffering of others, and the role suffering plays in communication is very poignant.

Any additional comments?

The book seems to start as a primer on Buddhism perhaps because the communication premise of the book is based upon some principles of Buddhism. I was a little worried at first that it would not tie into communication as I expected; perhaps it didn't but it gave me some important insights into the role of communication when dealing with others.

Loving speech

Those familiar with Thich Nhat Hanh will miss his gentle voice in the narration here, but Mr. Woren does a fine job. For those not familiar, this book can make a nice introduction. The book discusses human relationships from a softly buddhist perspective. Listening attentively, responding with compassion, being present. Excellent advice, full of wisdom, gently given.

practical lessons in compassion

well narrated. practical advice on having patience and examining one's thoughts. the advice in the last couple portions was a bit silly and felt out of place compared to the rest of the lessons.

some good points to remember but mediocre

Good information for compassionate communication but a lot was repetitive...i probably wouldn't buy again. good narrator
