Publisher Description

Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, bestselling author of Peace is Every Step and one of the most respected and celebrated religious leaders in the world, delivers a powerful path to happiness through mastering life's most important skill.

How do we say what we mean in a way that the other person can really hear?

How can we listen with compassion and understanding?

Communication fuels the ties that bind, whether in relationships, business, or everyday interactions. Most of us, however, have never been taught the fundamental skills of communication—or how to best represent our true selves. Effective communication is as important to our well-being and happiness as the food we put into our bodies. It can be either healthy (and nourishing) or toxic (and destructive).

In this precise and practical guide, Zen master and Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh reveals how to listen mindfully and express your fullest and most authentic self. With examples from his work with couples, families, and international conflicts, The Art of Communicating helps us move beyond the perils and frustrations of misrepresentation and misunderstanding to learn the listening and speaking skills that will forever change how we experience and impact the world.

Practical tips for connecting with others and ourselves

In a world where we are often presented with flashy marketing jargon and grand promises, it is refreshing to read advice that keeps a focus on the basics. Communicating consists of such advice; it is unlikely that you will find the ideas within revolutionary, but you will be left with actionable tips that you can use right now and every day for the rest of your life.

In this sense, the book is simple but also beautiful. I have just finished my first read-through, but I’ve highlighted favorite passages that I anticipate coming back to from time to time. These will serve as reminders on ways to deepen my understanding of myself, as well as ways I can create a genuine and loving environment for those closest to me and the people I interact with through the rest of my life.
