The author, a professional listener (Journalist), takes us on a journey though the concept that many of us have forgotten in today's world, how to be present in our conversations by listening more and talking less. The book is a fascinating look into the skill that most people, regardless of profession or lifestyle can put to use.
"Online and in person, it’s all about defining yourself, shaping the narrative, and staying on message. Value is placed on what you project, not what you absorb" -Kate Murphy

This is likely truest statement I have read in the swath of books I have tended in recent time. I found that after reading what I have, that it was difficult to even put words to paper, realizing that I am not listening but expressing my own opinion. Life changing perspectives in this book.
