Avoid No More

The Coward's Guide to Conflict is an excellent book for anyone who loves to avoid conflict. There are engaging exercises and good examples about a variety of avoidance methods. The author gives solid and proven techniques that will help you change your way of dealing with conflict. There are a plethora of opportunities to explore your relationship with conflict.

Unfortuntaely, the book is read too fast. It's hard to reflect on my relationship with conflict while listening to Rolland Lopez speed through exercises. Though his voice and diction are fine, the speed is just too fast. Listening to this type of psychological/coaching book requires the listener to become truly involved with the material, and that's pretty tough when the questions and concepts go by quickly.

Nevertheless, if you avoid conflict like I do, you will enjoy and benefit from listening to this book. If you take notes and pause to consider questions, you may reap benefits that will change your life. And if you enjoy a good fight, you might be able to improve your style of handling conflict - making the world a better place for all of us. Excellent!

Pretty Good

I can see how this book could empower some people. I just wasn't one of them. True it would be best to listen while not in your car. If your are looking to understand why you can't face conflict this might be a good one for you. I knew why, but was hoping for more technique one how to overcome. If you have any doubts as to whether or not to get it, I say go for it.
