Summary

Does it seem hard to get a handle on your emotions at times, especially when others are being unreasonable?

Does it seem like your patience is running thing with some individuals who strive to upset you?

If you can relate to any of these questions, then this book is for you.

The nonviolent communication method focuses on a number of different concepts that all promote peaceful and wholesome ways of living that can allow you to be able to live a healthier lifestyle in terms of your mental and emotional states. Some of the basic concepts that the NVC method attempts to teach people are split up into two groups of four components that can be applied in different ways to allow you to be able to communicate more effectively with the people around you and even to be able to understand yourself and your own feelings and emotions on a much deeper level. The four components of the nonviolent communication method are:

  • Observations, or the things that you perceive in the people and the world around you. In the context of these four components of the nonviolent communication, this refers to the things that happen to and around you that might cause specific reactions from you or other people.
  • Feelings, or the emotions that you experience as a reaction to the observations that you make or the things that happen to and around you.
  • Needs, or the fundamental things that all people require in order to be emotionally and mentally satisfied or fulfilled.
  • Requests, or the expressions that you or other people make to inform other people about the things that you might need and asking for help to allow you to meet those needs for yourself or even for other people.

Once you have finished listening this book, you should have a much better understanding of the method and how to live a peaceful and happy life by practicing the techniques that the nonviolent communication method teaches

Most Influential Self-Improvement audio Book

I'm a Self-Improvement audio book junkie, and I've hear tons of audio books: parenting books, marriage audio books, productivity audio books, and on and on. This audio book tops them all in every category. My relationship with my wife and my children has already been very positively impacted by my imperfect attempts to implement what I hear from this audio book.

Colossal waste of time

It’s difficult to say which was worse, the writing or the narration. In fact I have to say they were equally as terrible. The irony of the violence such a pathetic use of the English language and human speech could drive a listener to would likely make Marshall Rosenberg cringe. I have to believe that the review system is rigged for this inferior mess to have gotten such a high rating. I want my credit back.

extremely valuable

Yeah so chapter 1: we have feelings because we have needs... yes of course but ... who ever thinks about this audio. Book is full of intuitive & basic things that aren't obvious until pointed out. It's like a human user manual. Of course, everything we do is communication & we only exist in existence with others so effective communication is the backbone of human existence.

Communicating Honestly and Receiving Empatheticall

Though this audio book does not pose this question directly, it is a question that I’ve had to reflect on while reading this audio book. And I haven’t really liked what I’ve been forced to admit - that many of the ways we communicate in our everyday life take from the well-being of others.

If you grew up in a dysfunctional family

This audio book has made all of my relationships more manageable. If you grew up in a dysfunctional family like I did, where communication usually happened in the form of guilt trips and passive aggression, this audio book can change your life.

life-changing audiobook

Another life-changing audiobook in the same category as "Mistakes were made" or "Drive". The category would be named "Why has no one told me earlier". So read at your own risk. Has the potential to change your life.

The subject of communication

This audiobook is the best I have to listen to the subject of communication. If a person was only going to listen to one audiobook on the subject this would be the one to listen to.

A new way of thinking

I was moved to tears many times by this audiobook. The love conveyed by the messages are touching, and knowing that we have needs and feelings in our interactions with others was eye-opening.
