5.0 out of 5 stars The book I have been waiting for, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Smart Listening (Kindle Edition)
Kay Kay is a highly experienced and ethical communicator. She has just recently been turning her work and teaching into a written record, often in useful pamphlet form. However, this full size volume contains everything you need to both become a good listener yourself and recognise both constructive and destructive listening in others. The book is big, but easy to read and on point all the way through. Kay also uses coloured sections to enable easy referencing, which is really helpful (I wish other authors would follow this example)
As Kay so rightly says at the beginning of the book 'The majority of us no longer recognize the enormous value and importance of good, attentive listening'. Just look at any newspaper article on any day and you will recognise the truth of those words. We are going to struggle to survive as individuals or as a society unless we learn very quickly how to communicate effectively.

Learning how to listen must be the first step on this road - and no-one teaches this better than Kay.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is real power....., 18 July 2013
If you are either a 'head in the sand' person, or a 'we're all doomed!' person you should read this deceptively simple book and 'get real'!!

If you already know that things could be better if only someone would listen to you, then you must read this book and then get on joining with local, likeminded people and making your voices heard.

So that covers everyone then??!!
