Book Review: Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life

Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life

This great book explains how to have real and deep communication among humans. No matter how difficult the subject or how difficult the situation, this method proposed by the Dr. Marshall Rosenberg can improve our relations and communications by removing judgment from the equation and helping us to express our real needs.

This is one of the books that can significantly change your life… This form of communication is in our nature, but in most cases, due to our education (and upbringing), we have lost this skill, so the book is a method and a guide to recovering and developing it. Dr. Marshall guides us by using real examples and conversations from his workshops or from his experience as a mediator in difficult conflicts. He uses very clear language, it is not only very easy to read, but also very instructive.

For sure, this book is only the first step to discovering this skill and how deeply it can change your relationships. There are communities for practice, workshops and other books with more examples or exercises. Any skill requires practice.

In summary, a great book with a great purpose: to improve our lives, and relationships, express our real needs and help us understand the needs of others.
