"[ Crucial Conversations] draws our attention to those defining moments that literally shape our lives, our relationships, and our world....

must be good, but horribly read

Bought the book also motivated by the many (over 700) and excellent ratings on amazon, New York Times and Inc.Many professionals refer to it as an ultimative bible for conversation skills....and then I started listening.

My personal opinion about the reading and reader is as to a pure nightmare for an audio book: too fast, in kinda marketing, "wanna-sell-you-something", overexcited falsetto, very artificial, impossible for listen and relax and concentrate and comprehend.

No adjustment of speed or volume helped:-/

Thus, only 3 starts, since that bad reading of an audio book is the premature death of an (probably amazing) audio book.

Valuable tools for better relationships

The book provides you with tools to navigate successfully during a Crucial Conversation, a conversation with differing opinions, where stakes are high and emotions running strong.

The key message is that mastering crucial conversations is essential for success in any type of relationship.

The key take away is that you want to achieve dialogue during a crucial conversation. Also, what people neglect is that often you yourself have to take a step back and start with yourself first.

Very valuable, highly recommended!
