Summary

Our words have the power to create profound healing or incredible suffering. Yet even with the best intentions, it is often difficult to express ourselves in ways that build harmony and trust. Speaking Peace presents a seminal four-part model you can use immediately to connect to the spirit of love and generosity within you and start contributing to the well-being of everyone you relate to.

For over 40 years, visionary author Marshall Rosenberg has used the process of nonviolent communication to help families, schools, businesses, and governments reach accord in seemingly impossible conflicts. Join this pioneering voice to learn:

  • How to use your natural empathy to defuse stressful situations and safely confront anger, fear, and other emotions
  • Proven skills for overcoming dehumanizing communication patterns that block compassion
  • How to see through the eyes of others to foster understanding
  • And more

Marshall Rosenberg teaches that when you convey what is alive in you, your true feelings, and the values and desires behind them, you establish honest, nurturing relationships that eventually fulfill everyone's needs. With Speaking Peace, learn how to align your speech with your heart's purest depths.

Essential book on communication in relationships

We all have needs (ehich is not the same as being "needy"). Knowing our "true" needs is not that simple and expressing them with clarity and compassion even less simple, but Marshall R shows us simple steps to happy relating.

Condensed repeat

It's great information and I enjoy his work, but if you've already listened to Non Violent Communication, this is pretty much the same down to the examples. The other book is better if you want to get a better understanding of the nuts and bolts of this style of communication. Kind of disappointing that there was no new information.

Practical Steps to create more peace in your life!

I found this book very enjoyable to listen to, partly because of Marshall Rosenberg's soothing voice. I learned how to apply nonviolent communication principles in relationships, to myself, and in a social justice context.

basically rehash of nonviolent communication

rehash of nonviolent communication.... some annoying self composed music strewn in.... doesn't add to the title....

the author makes some assumptions in part 2 which are actually the very same judgements he counsels against...
I respect his methods and system but the author has a significant bias which he, himself fails to overcome in this work.

I expected better from this author.
that said I still admire and wish to emulate the principles of nonviolent communication.

Always a pleasure

I learn so much listening to Marshall as he narrates his experiences! I have shared and applied many of his principles right away, finding that communication is richer and easier between myself and those I wish to relate to. Very valuable and worth the read for anyone, not just those who are struggling. Upon finishing the book, I wished there was much more so that I could continue soaking up the wisdom. May go back and read again. Ive already read and reread his book Nonviolent Communication. Also very helpful.

WoW - break a mold that you may not know existed

I am able to find little nuggets here and there to help me think more clearly in most books and stories, this book has many nuggets that are potentially game changing for you. Don't take my word for it.

life changing book, hands down.

This book has saved my relationship with my closest friend. I 100% believe that this is the most connecting way to communicate and I am loving learning the process. I have listened to his books a few times now.
