Excellently balanced for both the avid learner, unsuspecting dunce
I accidentally stumbled across this book trying to find something on neurology. My partner and I are a little over two years together now, so communication is still a learning work-in-progress.
I’m biased towards self-help books, but this is definitely one of the top audible experiences I’ve had (I’m probably close to/over 100 books in the library with around 10 repeaters).
I found myself reflecting on my own shortcomings as a partner, because I was motivated to be a more active participant in the relationship. One of my favorite dynamics from the book is how the author cleverly weaves sound seductive arguments within common-sense conversation, and tidies it up with realistic evidence. I most enjoyed how the author constructively disassembles a large collection of social norms, expectations, and assumptions.
So far I’ve tried to shove this book in any of my audible fiends’ ears. On my third listen in less than a few months, I’m very pleased.
