This book has opened my eyes to taking connecting and communicating to the next level in my life. I feel hopeful and excited in taking what I’ve learned and applying it in my relationships but most importantly in understanding myself. I’m deeply grateful for this knowledge.
What made the experience of listening to Nonviolent Communication the most enjoyable?
It is exceptional and overwhelming: it reveals explanations to emotions, thoughts and behavior of myself and others that used to be felt and seen as incomprehensible, odd and simply aggressive. I wish this book fell into my hands years ago. So much emotions, energy and efforts could have been not wasted. I'm now reading all other books of the Author opening new world of understanding, compassion and joy of life. Thank you so much for this book!!!
Any additional comments?
I would like to give it 100 starts. After just only 2 hours of listening to the book, I started using it with my children (9 and 12 year-old boys). I found online a list of needs and feelings, told everyone in the family that I’m learning a new way of speaking so, if they all could please be patient with me while I am looking for my needs and feelings to express what I would like to say. I resolved every single conflict boys had while with me. There was no need for negative consequences. It is amazing. My 12 year-old had a lot of negativity in him and luck of self-esteem. It was breaking my heart, to not be able to help him. We did affirmations every morning, meditation, manifestation, countless hours of talking about power of thought and choices that only he can make. But nothing would really help him fully enjoy his life. This book teaches how to express your care to a person and what astonishing results come after when a person realizes that someone really cares about his/her needs. I realized that even after all the work I have done with my child, he still thought that no one cared and understood what he wanted. But when I started using words “your needs” over and over, he knew that I am here for him, for his needs and feelings and not just lecturing him about what he should do in order to feel better. As a result, I don’t have to ask kids twice for anything (taking garbage out, clean their room, make their beds). They feel good and they want to help me with everything. So far it’s been only 6 days since I started working with the book, and I can totally see a difference in myself. I love the way I feel, I love the way I communicate with people (including my husband), I love that I can express my own feelings and needs without blaming anyone or feeling guilty about it. This book is an answer from heaven that I was begging for. It did change my life in such a short time and I am very grateful it found me (or I found it :) ) Thank you Dr.Rosenberg from all my heart!

This book seemingly covers everything I was looking for to work on the things others echoed to me I need to connect better with them and the rest of the world, especially my anger.

I've listened to it twice in a row. There are many other great audiobooks on audible that will enrich your life, by Thich Nhat Hanh, Eckhart Tolle, Tara Brach and many more from Sounds True, and you should check those out too. But on the subject of communication, and more widely on engaging genuinely with other people and making yours and their lives richer, this book held several epiphanies for me, and will be a reference often returned to in the future. Do listen to it!

Undoubtedly one of the most profound learnings of my 45 year old life. If you have ever expressed your feelings and met with a defensive or aggressive response this is for you. If you want to communicate better this is for you.
