    This book gave me a lot to think about. The author provides "seven keys" for improving communication. The keys help you to: 1) focus on staying in the present moment and 2) communicate without the intent to control others. The author states that "communication that fosters connection, trust, intimacy, and respect, is about knowing and being known." To achieve this, she provides key phrases that can help you express wants ("A want is only a want. It is not a command or an order."), diminish overr This book gave me a lot to think about. The author provides "seven keys" for improving communication. The keys help you to: 1) focus on staying in the present moment and 2) communicate without the intent to control others. The author states that "communication that fosters connection, trust, intimacy, and respect, is about knowing and being known." To achieve this, she provides key phrases that can help you express wants ("A want is only a want. It is not a command or an order."), diminish overreactions when your unconscious fears are triggered, express appreciation and deal with conflict in a way that lessens the avoidance of it. The book is a very quick read--less than 150 pages--but it is filled with practical examples of how the seven keys can be used in various types of relationships, from business to romantic. I don't think that using the keys is easy but it is easy to see how most relationships would benefit from their use, even if only occasionally.

    I already use a lot of the tools that are in this book and so there wasn't much new or surprising but I do think this would be a helpful resource for people who do have trouble communicating. The author is a little wooden in how she applies these tools (and for people learning this that is probably helpful) but overall a helpful resource.

    I love this book. I really believe that using these key phrases Susan introduces are the most important factor in maintaining open and honest communication in any relationship. Like many other self-help books I've given five stars too, I wish I had read this years ago. Maybe I could have been honest with myself then. I love this book.

Hopefully someone named Christine benefits from my efforts. Hi Christine! I'm trying to do a lot better in my personal communications and Susan Campbell's lessons are very helpful.

    I would recommend this for couples not for business. It is too weak for using the seven keys in the workplace. Its pretty much the same from the first page to the last one: Talking from the present moment, from our feelings not from our mind. Anyway is has some innovation on how to stay connected to your feelings.
