This review is from: Life-Changing Conversations (Paperback)Having studied dialogue theory in academic as well as business texts, I appreciate Sarah Rozenthuler's book for mastering the art of great teaching: explaining the complex in a succint and simple way. It was easy and a joy to read! This does not mean that the seven strategies and cases described are made to seem easy or that the book lacks nuance or perspective. Quite the opposite, the complexities are there, yet hope and hands-on recommendations make Life-Changing conversations seem workable and doable for anyone who is interested.
I will always remember the description of how conversation is such a humble, and yet powerful, tool. It seems that this is easy to forget. I also particularly appreciate the examples that are from situations that most people can recognize. Through these the book gives me inspiration to care for my part of the world, that is the relationships that I am part of in my everyday life. I highly recommend the book to anyone interested in taking responsibility for how you affect others in your life as well as how you are affected.
