Nonviolent Communication by Laura Hill
The origin of the Non-Violent Communication (NVC)
"NonViolent Communication is language and interaction that reinforces our ability to give kindly and inspire others the desire to do the same.” (Marshall B Rosenberg)
NonViolent Communication, also called NVC, was developed by a famous American doctor in clinical psychology . The latter, also a successful international author, is known as Marshall B. Rosenberg. He has long studied human relationships and language, relying, among others, on the works of Carl Roger and Paulo Freire. In 1984, he founded the CNVC (Centre for NonViolent Communication). This international organization works for peace in nearly 60 countries around the world.
A brief insight of this audiobook:
At its heart, the theory of nonviolent communication is a belief that all human beings have the capacity for compassion and empathy and that we only resort to violence or behavior harmful to others when we do not recognize more effective strategies for meeting needs.
Habits of thinking and speaking leading to use of violence (social, psychological, and physical) are learned through culture. Nonviolent communication theory supposes all human behavior stems from attempts to meet universal human needs. The needs are never in conflict. Rather, conflict arises when strategies for meeting needs clash. Nonviolent communication proposes people identify shared needs, revealed by the thoughts and feelings surrounding these needs, and collaborate to develop strategies and make requests of each other to meet each other's needs.
The result is interpersonal harmony and learning for future cooperation.
This audiobook will teach you how to use nonviolent communication in your life, in almost any circumstances. Nonviolent communication supports change on three interconnected levels: within self, between others, and within groups and social systems. Nonviolent communication's greatest impact has been in personal development, relationships, and social change.

Needs and editor, a director, and I think a more coherent writer
The audio is not edited. You can hear the narrator mispronounce words, pause, try again. Pause. I would think that a good editor would be able to remove these problems.
At other times, the narrator reads smoothly and quickly, but my impression is she is just reading words and not really understanding them herself as she reads them.
The text itself lacks coherency. It seems to jump from topic to topic without much flow from one topic to the next.
