Yes, this is an overpriced pamphlet, not even a booklet. I ordered it because I value Rosenberg's teachings and was highly rewarded by its contents.
I return to Rosenberg's teachings from time to time over the years, feeling that there is so much to benefit from but usually finding it far too much effort and not appreciating the benefits enough to practise it in real life. I was fascinated by his 2003 book (first published in the 1990s) "Nonviolent Communication" but it has a step missing (because Rosenberg's strength is that particular step, he didn't even know he was doing it). So I had to take a workshop which included the missing step, and things finally fell into place.
His 2012 book "Living Nonviolent Communication" is a compilation of 6 of his booklets:
We Can Work It Out
Being Me, Loving You
Getting Past the Pain Between Us
The Surprising Purpose of Anger
Raising Children Compassionately
This pamphlet and "Teaching Children Compassionately: How Students and Teachers Can Succeed with Mutual Understanding" are the only ones missing
(he also had tapes I appreciated, probably now CDs).
This pamphlet, a transcript of a workshop and published in 2005, is Marshall Rosenberg at his best (he's always good, I feel that here he excels himself). He summarizes in just a few amazing pages how all religions view the good life as punishing bad people (good forces punishing bad forces) and the many ways, from birth, that we are taught to accept hierarchy and to enforce punishment and enjoy violence (often the climax of TV and Film offerings).
Rosenberg made an amazing point that Milton Rokeach, in his book "Open and Closed Mind", showed that if you compare people who attend places of worship in any of the seven basic religions, people who sincerely follow the practices, and compare them on measures of compassion with people who have no "church" (temple, synagogue, whatever) affiliation, the majority are less compassionate. The more people go to places of worship the less compassionate the majority (over 90%) become.
The rest of the pamphlet shows students trying to use nonviolent communication, with Rosenberg explaining where they (where we all) need to explore further this way of enriching life and creating peaceful coexistence. I also found this part useful as it demonstrated how difficult the process is, due to our brainwashing (and don't feel so bad now, about my complete failure to become a saint like Rosenberg).
