Nichols using this word so frequently, even for examples sake. It does not seem completely necessary to get the point across. Despite these criticisms, there were a few points in his book I really appreciated him adding, for example, his few pages on the differences between how society thinks men are supposed to listen vs. He made sure to say how important it is to listen without these pre-supposed ideas in mind and he asked the right questions, and for that I want to say a big Thank You.

Overall, The Lost Art of Listening is an honest book that has helped me see how I listen, why I listen the way I do, and how I can improve the way I listen for future interactions. Sometimes it did feel a little slow for me, and I had to be patient with the reading of it but I am glad I stuck it out.

I think I am an OK listener (and even a good one in my better moments) but it's a skill I value in myself and in others so I am always happy to get great books to improve. And this is a pretty great book on the subject. This book really nails down every aspect of the listening process, and through multiple real life examples, drives each point home in a clear manner. I found myself paying much more attention to different dialogue dynamics going on around me, going through things in my head to speak in a less defensive way, truly pay attention to others and take on whatever criticism that comes your way without the knee jerk reaction.

We are so bad at listening these days, and I've been trying for years to improve my listening skills through various methods (exercises online, noting things down, practicing my memory, doing The Listening Program 15 mins sessions every day, DIDMBT.

I've been struggling with paying proper attention and listening to what other people say without putting it through my distortion filter where instead of taking what is said at face value I will interpret badly what the person means. This is well written and an easy read, and the observations provided in the book are very easy to relate to and to translate it into our own lives.

You will find yourself wanting everyone around you to read this book as well in the hopes they too, will improve on some key points. My partner has noticed the clear progress in my listening and overall interactions, so this is a real positive in my life. For many people out there, picking up this book might just avoid you running to the local psychologist for help in some spheres of you life, as it will bring you much needed insight and a new perspective on your behavior and the relationships around you.

I love reading self-help type books, and this one is probably the one that provided me with the most help. I'm now going to purchase the audiobook version as well so I can quickly get a second reading in and get the material to sink in even more. Report abuse Translate review to English5.

When you see a list of three or four items strung out vertically on the page rather than in normal paragraph format, you naturally notice it more and are likely to pay more attention to it.

Certain types of lists also make for easier reading. For example, in instructions, it is a big help for each step to be numbered and separate from the preceding and following steps. Lists also create more white space and spread out the text so that pages don't seem like solid walls of words. Your task for this chapter is to learn about the different types and uses of lists and to learn their specific format and style.

In professional technical-writing contexts, you must use a specific style of lists, like the one presented here. Note: In-sentence lists could be called "horizontal" lists. All the other lists types pesented here are "vertical" lists in that they format the items vertically rather than in paragraph format.

It's difficult to state guidelines on choosing between the various kinds of lists, but here's a stab at it: Use the following for specific details on the capitalization, typography (bold, underlining, different fonts, different types sizes), and spacing for each type of list.
