    This is the type of book that I would never pick up in a store or library The design the earth inside a flower , the subtitle a language of life, the emphasis on the Phd after the author s name all cues to me of a likely unhelpful, overly cutesy self help book Blech.But so many people have recommended this book to me that I looked past these things and recently ordered a used copy For a moment, I thought I was about to be punished for relaxing my previous resistance Beware there is some exceptio [...]

    I wish I had read this book a long time ago Nonviolent Communication A Language of Life by Marshall B Rosenberg, Ph.D is full of wisdom.The book starts off by explaining the process of Nonviolent Communication which boils down to four steps 1 Observe what s happening what s really going on What is happening or being said that you either like or dislike 2 Identify your feelings about it anger, joy, hopeful, inspired, lonely 3 Figure out what need you have that is driving that feeling4 Ask for wha [...]

    I ve read this book before, years ago and was enormously impressed with the ideas in it However, I found it difficult to put the ideas into practice Am now currently taking a course in Rosenberg s Nonviolent Communication theory and have renewed hope about my ability to put the ideas into practice I figure if I can learn to communicate with compassion it will be the first step towards being a wise person A warning about this book If you d rather remain blissfully ignorant of your own emotional b [...]

    In some of the circles I move, this book or rather NVC in general frequently gets a bad rap for being focused on communication and how sometimes it feels manipulative and stilted for those on the receiving end of someone practicing it About 2 3rds of the content of the book is dedicated to the how s of the communication, so I think its easy to see why folks feel this way and to then dismiss it as a specialized form of talking But focusing on the remaining 1 3rd of the book which is spread out am [...]

    I listened to i.e did not read this book in the car Without any doubt, the concepts contained in it should be taught to the young in this country And the old And all over the world.I m not sure this was the best presentation of it, and the book is dated The audiobook, in particular, was quite a struggle to get through One of my pet peeves is when an author makes up stories and then claims them to be true when he tells them, pointing out how the story just so naturally fits in with his theories H [...]

    A brilliant handbook for how to talk to people without judging them, alienating them, or really pissing them off The book is enlivened with a number of transcripts of conversations in which the author and his acquaintances get it right sometimes and fail at other times The basic idea will be familiar to anyone who has had a little therapy or knows a therapist you talk about your feelings, not what the other person is doing wrong Of course, that is difficult to do under the best of circumstances, [...]

    I stopped at 100 pages in I think it is important to point out that this method of communicating is decades old It was not based on any research at the time, it has not been updated in accord with research, and it has not had any research verifying its effectiveness There is no consensus, there are anecdotes and there are endorsements.As a method, the process taught inside was not enough to fill the book and the description was padded out As literature there were lengthy quotes of poetry of a ce [...]

    While many of the techniques presented in this slim volume are entirely worthwhile and of great value in making oneself clear and defusing potentially tense communications, I still disagree with some of the author s fundamental categorization of needs While it may be useful, or even necessary under certain circumstances, to address the desires of another person in addition to, or even perhaps prior to, their needs, I continue to maintain that there is an important distinction to be made between [...]

    I highly recommend this life changing book It revolutionized my thinking It s such an excellent guide to communicating, that I wish I had been taught this stuff in Kindergarten, and again in middle school and high school The book emphasizes personal responsibility It empowers one to fully experience one s emotions without being controlled by them It gives you permission to experience the full spectrum of human emotions, not just the good ones like happiness It integrates human rationality and em [...]

    Life changing Everyone should read this Rosenberg has well over three decades of experience and stories, and delivers it well.My key takeaways Using I feel for everything is a good start but doesn t go far enough Still need to connect to self needs and specific actions of others Use needs to find common human ground, especially when you disagree strongly with someone Not everything needs to be fixed People want to be heard listened to empathised with.


    Mehrsa

    Essential reading even if I am like 2 decades too late to reading this I ve already started using it and though I probably sound like a moron, I m confident I ll get better at talking through my needs Everyone just wants to be loved and we just keep asking for it the wrong way.

    I applaud Rosenberg s intention to bring peace and reconciliation through better communication Rosenberg offers many potentially helpful insights in this book His call for a therapist to bring him herself into psychotherapy was refreshing It could create less of a power differential and perhaps be healing in its inclusivity and open acknowledgement of all individuals in the room He also shows how we can get stuck in patterns that defeat the outcomes we re hoping for, and suggests, via Marianne [...]

    I heard Marshall Rosenberg speak with Terry Gross last year and was captivated I am still wrapping my head around the practice very difficult to break old habits but the few times over the last two days I ve tried this, honest, constructive information burst out immediately I will try to integrate these methods into the classes I am currently teaching this is communication gold.

    If you want to learn to experience connection of compassion, warmth, love, and understanding read this book This book is a great companion volume to any serious meditation or contemplative prayer practice It will teach you how to spot the differences between evaluations and observations, feelings and thoughts, needs and strategies, and requests and demands most of which people confuse unconsciously due to very old habit patterns of the mind This book is for those who want to change the world by [...]

    This book movement is amazing And needed A very healthy, down to earth way of communicating, resolving conflicts, learning about ourselves and others, and living according to our needs and healthy values I ve heard about NVC before, but never got reading it, until a recent family quarrel Should have got the book a bit earlier, ha ha The book is clear It seems so simple, but man, no kidding, it is a bit difficult if you have like most of us grown up in the jackal society But not impossible I thou [...]

    The core ideas in this book are sound, and it does seem likely that someone striving to implementthem in the way they communicate, especially how they communicate when in conflict, will see some of their relationships improve and some conflicts resolved.This review is for the BOOK not for NVC as such The actual core ideas of this book I d give 4 stars, it s the presentation in this book that I think is severly enough flawed to deserve a couple stars less.On a positive note, the writing is clear, [...]

    I broke up with my ex 3 months ago The breakup, and all drama out of it made me suffer a lot Mentally, it was one of the most difficult time in my life.Then I started to go on dates Many of them At one of those coffee dates, I asked the guy about the books he d read that influenced his way of thinking the most He said two Nonviolent communication, and Stranger in a Strange Land The guy didn t give me a call back Neither did I But I started to read the book, and this book is so far the most helpf [...]

    During the last couple of years of my marriage I understood that the only chance I had to save my marriage was to learn to use language effectively I began experimenting, initially subconsciously, with how I could express myself in ways which weren t destructive to the fragile remnants of our relationship It was an ultimately doomed process but one that taught me a lot about the power of language I learned a lot about why things went wrong, but never quite made sense of why things sometimes wen [...]

    This book is a fabulous introduction to the notion that we can help create a peaceful world by improving our ability to communicate effectively and compassionately Rosenberg points out a disturbing fact we have words in our language with which to judge each other and ourselves than we do to express our emotions By learning to feel and express our emotions with words, we become less likely to act aggressively from these same emotions When we can honestly say, I feel angry when you speak to me l [...]

    This book was completely amazing I have already seen a difference in how this style of communication works with my kids I can only imagine the help it would bring into the workplace, classroom, etc I feel like everyone should read this gem It would really help get past so many misunderstandings that happen just because we aren t taught as a society to communicate empathetically.

    While there are ideas that can be adapted to use in this book that make it worth reading, it makes a few claims that could be problematic Full disclosure, this review is also based on my personal experiences with several NVC counselors.First some positives.1 It is is a good attempt at a listening tool to both interpret what others are telling you and in restating things back to someone so they know you understand them and can be worked into the BATHE technique of addressing problems.2 It is a go [...]
