Too late for me, I hope you discover this book in time...
on 31 July 2014
I discovered this book to late to rescue my marriage. Marshall Rosenberg was recommended as reading, (you can listen to him relatively easily on You Tube as a taster). The book is well laid out and full of examples and some exercises, Non-Violent Communication comes across as being relatively easy until you try it.
I have been able quite successfully to change the relationship I have with my children, with my son (6) it works really well, my daughter (4) is still a bit to young to recognise needs, nonetheless the atmosphere at home has changed and there are very few emotional outbursts on my part with the children. Home is a much happier and more positive place to be as a result.
Too much has happened inside and outside of my marriage for me not to be judgemental and emotional at this point, I hope that in a couple of months, and after another good effort at reading this book, I will be able to put all I have learnt with my children into practice, allowing me to end my marriage in a positive way. I also have set myself the goal of trying to use these techniques in the work place.
A very good book, if you have difficulties communicating within your marriage or relationship, the you should read the book and try it out.
Like I said, I was too late in discovering non-violent communication. Don't wait, buy it, read it and try it, if you can rescue relationships with those that are most dear to you, then the book will have been worth its weight in gold.
