How to Listen so People Will Talk by Becky Harling
What is the secret to an especially good relationship with anyone? According to Becky Harling in her recently released book, How to Listen so People Will Talk, it is to listen well. She says it really is just that simple.
How to Listen so People Will Talk is a short book with a lot of good information in it. Harling shares stories from her life and from the Bible to help Christians better understand how to listen and communicate with friends and family--and anyone else they come in contact with. Each chapter shares good solid information on building your listening skills. Then at the end of each chapter is a set of exercises to help you apply that information to your own life called Exercises to Strengthen Your Listening Ear. The exercises are broken down into smaller bite-sized chunks called Listening to God, Listening to Your Heart and Listening to Others.
I found How to Listen so People Will Talk to be quite helpful in building relationship communication skills. I would encourage everyone and anyone to read this book--and to do the exercises. I think reading the book slowly and doing the exercises are the key to building up a better listening skill set. This is a book that I will keep in my library to refer to again.
I received this book from Bethany House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.
