Item description for Are You Really Listening?: Keys to Successful Communication by Paul J. Donoghue, Mary E. Siegel & Joan Lunden...

Listening is an essential skill worth every effort to learn and to master. Listening takes us out of our tendency toward self-absorption and self-protection. It opens us to the world around us and to the persons who matter most to us. When we listen, we learn, we grow, and we are nourished. Why do we often feel cut off when speaking to the people closest to us? What is it that keeps so many of us from really listening? Practicing psychotherapists, Donoghue and Siegel answer these questions and more in this thoughtful, witty, and helpful look at the reasons why people don't listen. Filled with vivid examples that clearly demonstrate easy-to-learn listening techniques, Are You Really Listening? is a guide to the secrets and joys of listening and being listened to.

Reviews - What do customers think about Are You Really Listening?: Keys to Successful Communication?

very insightful!  Apr 8, 2008
while the lessons inside are easier said than done many times, they are lessons nonetheless. i knew i wasn't a good listener and i knew i wanted to change it, and this was a great way to start the process. the best part is identifying the non-listening behavior so you can root it out! definately recommended, but just know that listening may require more than you may be willing to offer!
Are You Really Listening?  Nov 21, 2006
Relationships often flounder because of poor communication. In Are You Really Listening?, the authors make a strong case for the importance of listening attentively to improve communication. This book offers case studies, concrete examples, and clear descriptions to help the reader become a better listener. By carefully listening, people can depend their understanding and talk intimately with each other. I highly recommend this book.
A self-help guide to relationships, and the value of listening  Aug 9, 2006
"Are You Really Listening? Keys to Successful Communication" is a self-help guide to relationships, and the value of listening - a skill desperately needed in a world prone to misunderstandings and worse. "Are You Really Listening?" isolates the factors that tend to keep people from listening, and how to identify one's own tendencies to tune out what others are saying - from the "Me Too" syndrome that tends to tune out the speaker and refocus the conversation on the self, to learning how to be heard, to how counterproductive defensiveness can be (defending oneself signals that the time of listening to the speaker's concerns have ended). "Are You Really Listening?" has the absolute highest recommendation for anyone striving to improve their communication skills and professional or personal relationships.
Finally!  Aug 27, 2005
I feel like I've been waiting forever to find a book that would neatly describe how to listen better. There are so many "self-help" books out there, but nearly all of them are ineffectual. Are You Really Listening, however, is extremely useful. I have found it so helpful in my life, because the authors wrote it using an honest and clear voice that is shared between them.
Moreover, I found the brief case illustrations to illuminate wonderfully the messages and lessons that these two experts prescribe.

Buy this book.

Great Book!  Aug 24, 2005
What a marvelous book! It so clearly makes the case that listening is the essential element in any good relationship. Friendships, businesses, and famiilies all benefit from genuine understanding. Are You Really Listening? not only demonstrates the value of listening, it teaches in a clear step-by-step manner how to listen. I loved it and I am giving it as gifts to friends and family.
