I haven't finished this yet but am finding it engrossing. It is meticulously referenced and pieces together many theories and examples with the author's own measured observations, like a forensic examination of a complex crime scene. And all the way through it is prompting me to think about how little attention is given to real listening and what I can do personally to improve my own skills (or is it virtue?) and that of the organisations with which I'm involved in this regard. I haven't yet got to the chapters where some ways in which democracy could listen better are presented and my anticipation is building. It's the book I reach for in the early hours when I can't sleep and with pen in hand I find myself underlining many sentences which really strike a chord. I think this is a bit of a gem and wish it was required reading for politicians.
