APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Have you ever tried to express to another person what you’re really thinking? That sounds like a big ask, but it doesn’t have to be. Psychologist Marshall Rosenberg brings us deeper into examining the emotional effect of verbal communication, helping us avoid unnecessary and stressful conflicts. He offers step-by-step strategies for transforming our communication skills, breaking down how to recognize when you’re being judgmental, angry, or otherwise negative. Crucially, he not only identifies how to respond to negativity in others, which gives us the skills to defuse potentially explosive situations, but shows how easy it is for us to think negatively about ourselves. The chapters about learning how to respond to compliments and change our internal monologues were eye-opening. Rosenberg’s calm demeanor and warm voice made us trust what he’s saying—what better way to understand ideas about language than hearing them out loud? Nonviolent Communication offers an emotionally intelligent pathway to more positive and satisfying conversations with everyone we meet.
