  • In this third edition of the very popular book Crucial Conversations, the writing team behind this work expands this work’s scope to further fine-tune their recommendations for helping people handle life’s difficult conversations. These difficult conversations include everything from addressing marital problems to issues in the workplace and even interacting with your children. While the scope of issues that can be addressed through a crucial conversation is limitless, fortunately the recommendations this book provides for dealing with these conversations is not. Without providing any spoilers, this book uses a short menu of tactics and techniques to help readers navigate various conversations. Some techniques help address receiving unexpected, very critical, or exceedingly disturbing input while others help you to communicate such things to other people in the most constructive, least damaging manner possible.Interestingly enough, while I found the book’s recommendations useful the rational behind their tactics and techniques was actually the part I found most useful. While acronyms and other memory techniques are effective at helping people learn information, I found in this case the understanding of both human behavior and how to effectively modify it (the “why”) behind this book’s recommendations very useful. Unfortunately, the memory techniques were much less so since I think they are a bit crudely crafted and could benefit from a substantial update. This is not to say any of the tactics themselves were bad, only that the memory techniques used lacked flow and the ability to really “stick” in one’s memory.This book is literally applicable to anyone. Unfortunately, since a lot of the really essentially dynamics it explains how to handle tend to get lost in the memory techniques they are teaching, I recommend this for adults who are in professions that require having these conversations or people with a great deal of background in them from other experience. For conversational novices, I recommend finding more basic books on decision making and conversation (and possibly influence depending upon the application). This is definitely not a bad book, but it is repetitive and a bit pedagogical they way it focusses on the techniques being taught over the reasoning behind why they work.
  • It was better than I had heard. The advice absolutely nailed me. Early in the book, it talks about employees who “say they are bought in but walk away feeling as if they know better than the leader. Simultaneously, they avoid the crucial conversation that would benefit everyone because they are afraid of being fired, or they just want to keep the peace.” That was me. I wasn’t giving my bosses a chance because I arrogantly thought I knew better than they did. I thought I was buying a book that would help me complete my dissertation. I did. However, this book also put a mirror in front of my face and let me see my own flaws and mistakes. Excellent read.
  • The book seems to have all of its pages so I’m satisfied!
  • Highly recommended resource. Still reading and looking forward to applying tools to real life situations. Thank you!
  • Important read for anyone one who works in a team or even in family dynamics. This book gave me more tools to relate and understand my co workers and how to address potential conflict or issues in the workplace. It was really helpful in my personal life as well.
  • Using this book as part of my manager training
  • This was a good read. I’m now more aware of when a crucial conversation needs to happen. Ive used the techniques in this book twice, once professionally and once personally.
  • This is really about individual personal types and UNCONSCIOUS needs and agendas. This would be a simpler organizing principal to move foreward and around reactive emotions.This is really about confronting our unconsciousness,
  • Fantastic book for the subject.It is very helpful, insightful and informative. The authors use a lot of examples and case studies. Including online content and video clips. Lots of the material are on YouTube.Had to read it for my business course and I’m already utilising the tools.The book is an easy read, not complicated. It could be deemed as information dense (especially with the optional bonus content), but it will keep you engaged.By the end of the read, I guarantee, you will be able to face conversations, you would have otherwise avoided. You’ll feel more equipped to execute them properly.
  • Great book
