Listening and not just talking

This book is about the long lost art of listening - read other people's messages, or just plain waiting patiently for your turn in a conversation. I hope this book makes me a better listener. After reading it, I realized how much I'm terrible at that. In a conversation, instead of listening to what people have to say, I'm always thinking about what I can say next. By doing that, I lose tons of opportunity of really listening and learning more about other people's experiences.
It's not a self-help book, far from that, but at times I felt that it made me reflect on my own experience. Maybe in less than two weeks I'm back to the old self that doesn't listen very well to other people. But maybe not. I hope I can still remember this book years to come.
