Book Overview

Find your voice, speak your truth, listen deeply--a guide to more meaningful and mindful conversations.

We spend so much of our lives talking to each other, but how much are we simply running on automatic--relying on old habits and hoping for the best? Are we able to truly hear others and speak our mind in a clear and kind way, without needing to get defensive or go on the attack? In this groundbreaking synthesis of mindfulness, somatics, and Nonviolent Communication, Oren Jay Sofer offers simple yet powerful practices to develop healthy, effective, and satisfying ways of communicating.

The techniques in Say What You Mean will help you to:
- Feel confident during conversation
- Stay focused on what really matters in an interaction
- Listen for the authentic concerns behind what others say
- Reduce anxiety before and during difficult conversations
- Find nourishment in day-to-day interactions

   Incredibly difficult book to read
I bought this book after hearing Oren speak and watching a few interviews, and I have learned a fair bit from him. The book is a very lengthy version of a 1 1/2 hour interview. It loses focus and when it comes back in, I have to reread the entire thing to understand the point. The second time I gave it up, it was chapter 8.
   I'm no longer the Atomic Mom Bomb!!!
My mom is feeling ok, I said. The comment was made to me by my youngest kid while I was reading this book. Now I need to learn how to listen and speak in a new way. The book breaks it down making it easy for me to embrace the change AND explain it to my kids so we can be more effective in our communication. I highly recommend this book.
   Very Dry
I couldn't continue because it was too dry and informational for my liking, Hornblower said. However, a self-help book would not recommend for others. It was boring, too dry, Mr. D'Antonio said.
   Best resource available on communication.
This very well may be the best resource available to develop better communication skills in relationships, he said. If you are interested in learning more about this subject, this book is for you. Only a few people have criticized the book's length, but I can't imagine why they would criticize it. If one is not interested in the subject material it would be easy to shy away from reading it in its entirety. Even if just reading the highlights and main principles of the book will prove quite worthwhile, Mr. Rule told the judge.
   Okay but obsessive, redundant and Rosenberg is better for BVC
I think the book is a good teacher, but I think the writer goes on and on, Raymond said. It is useful and many will benefit from it, but after a while I didn't have the patience to read it. Some people will probably appreciate all the detail. Feeling weak is not the only part of the experience that Marshall Rosenberg's treatment can help with.
   Truly a gift
Therapist who works with families and communication is literally my bread and butter. That being said, I've read no other book that has broken down how to improve my own communication and explained how effective and heart centered communication works as well as this book has. It has concrete practices that I did with my girlfriend over the phone and in person, Morgenthau said. It helped us get better at communicating and really opened up space for us to dive deeper into the deep stuff, he said. The book breaks down in a step by step fashion how to gradually engage in learning and practicing better communication. Barrenas says he has seen a huge difference in performance since practicing through some concrete practices. If you're looking for a book about improving your own communication in an easy to read yet deeply insightful book, you've found it.
