I enjoyed this book. The author makes the point at the beginning of the book that we are encouraged to listen to ourselves these days - listen to our gut, listen to our intuition, etc. - but we are rarely encouraged to listen to other people. That's a very valid point, and it drew me into the book. The author is a journalist, and the book is reportage of what she discovered about listening by interviewing people for whom listening is a big part of their job (as it is hers). I especially enjoyed the chapter about her experience talking to the NPR staff of Fresh Air, the famous interview show hosted by Terry Gross.

Disclosure - I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
