I’m a talker. A verbal processor. I’ve had to learn to shut up and listen. Instead of giving advice, or offering solutions, or giving my take, this book reminded me that listening is about empathizing. Getting in the mind of the speaker. Truly caring about them. Allowing them be heard and known. Ironically, by simply listening, I’m learning a lot about myself – without all the extra noise. – Amazon Review
