I don't read a lot of nonfiction, so it actually wasn't too difficult to do a #Top10ofthedecade #nonfictionedition. Alan Alda is one of my favorite celebrities on the planet, & his latest book is phenomenal.

Daisey This is an interesting list. I may need to look some of them up. 3d
Cinfhen I‘d be curious to hear/ read Alan Alda‘s memoir / thanks for sharing your list 3d
mom2bugnbee @Cinfhen He has several books & I have loved all of them. 2d

The difference between listening and pretending to listen, I discovered, is enormous. One is fluid, the other is rigid. One is alive, the other is stuffed. Eventually, I found a #radical way of thinking about listening. Real listening is a willingness to let the other person change you. When I‘m willing to let them change me, something happens between us that‘s more interesting than a pair of dueling monologues.” #QuotsySept19

I've always liked Alan Alda and his approach to things. With my overall decision to study improved communications toward an overall end of being a better communicator, this book fit what I sought.

The obvious recommendation is for anyone who communicates complex ideas to others. However, there was a lot of helpful info for people in general.

A good-but-not-great read—I may adjust my attitude a bit when I review the almost-20 bookmarks I made for myself.

My ears really perked up toward the end, when he was discussing a study involving a 6-month-old girl named Nora. I'm almost positive that he's referring to a study that I just saw in the upcoming documentary “No Small Matter,“ about the importance of high-quality early childhood education experiences. I love it when that happens! 😃
