BOOK REVIEW: Nonviolent Communication by Marshall B. Rosenberg

I am a strong believer in effective communication skills which are vital for success. One thing I can assure you from my experience is that loud, bitter and violent communication never leads to fulfilment. Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication is a book about avoiding just that. He takes the reader through all the intricacies of working on what to say and how to say it so that one’s words lead to peace, not bitterness or violence. Another aspect of the book is that it also speaks to the essential need for developing compassionate communication with one self.
