On Nonviolent Communication, this renowned peacemaker presents his complete system for speaking our deepest truths, addressing our unrecognized needs and emotions, and honoring those same concerns in others. With this adaptation of the best-selling book of the same title, Marshall Rosenberg teaches in his own words.

One of the best books I have ever read.
A timeless classic.
The world would be a different place if everyone was familiar with his concepts of non violent communication.
God bless you for your great work

I very much enjoyed this book, lots of good hippies and feminist spirits, though I definitely prefer "more than two" in terms of Polyamory as it has -in my opinion- a better stance with regards to veto rights and hierarchical relationships (both of which are dealt with more critical in MTT). I also found TES slightly more rebellious, but perhaps that's perhaps because it is a newer book, faced with the challenge of introducing a new concept, whereas MTT most likely built upon that knowledge.

Why does it feel so natural to be compassionate and kind to those we care about - yet so hard to treat ourselves the same way? "Our culture teaches us to use self-criticism for motivation and to build self-esteem by constantly measuring ourselves against everyone else," says Dr. Kristin Neff. "We need to re-learn the essential skill of being genuinely nurturing and supportive toward ourselves."

Ein Haus an einem märkischen See: Es ist der Schauplatz für fünfzehn Lebensläufe, Geschichten, Schicksale von den Zwanzigerjahren bis heute. Das Haus und seine Bewohner erleben die Weimarer Republik, das Dritte Reich, den Krieg und dessen Ende, die DDR, die Wende und die Zeit der Nachwende. Jedem einzelnen Schicksal gibt Jenny Erpenbeck eine eigene literarische Form, jedes entfaltet auf ganz eigene Weise seine Dramatik, seine Tragik, sein Glück.

Ich hätte das Buch in der Tat daher lieber gelesen, die Geschichte ist phantastisch.
Ich empfand allerdings die Stimme als sehr monoton und anstrengend.

So much irrelevant stuff.
I didn't even finish it.

If you want to learn about BDSM, I rather recommend the book "ultimate guide to Kink" from Tristan Taormino.

To make an open marriage work, Franklin and Celeste knew they needed to make sure no one else ever came between them. That meant there had to be rules. No overnights, no falling in love, and either one of them could ask the other to end an outside relationship if it became too much to deal with. It worked for nearly two decades, and their relentless focus on their own relationship let them turn a blind eye to the emotional wreckage they were leaving behind them.

...insight into the author's own, very personal experience of ten ups and downs of Polyamory.
