Description

When you react, the event controls you. When you respond, you're in control.

Verbal Judo is the classic guide to the martial art of the mind and mouth that can help you defuse confrontations and generate cooperation, whether you're talking to a boss, a spouse, or even a teenager. For more than a generation, Dr. George J. Thompson's essential handbook has taught people how to communicate more confidently and persuasively in any situation. Verbal Judo shows you how to listen and speak more effectively, engage others through empathy (the most powerful word in the English language), avoid the most common conversational disasters, and use proven strategies to successfully express your point of view - and take the lead in most disputes.

This updated edition includes a new foreword and a chapter featuring Dr. Thompson's five universal truths of human interaction:

  • People feel the need to be respected
  • People would rather be asked than be told
  • People have a desire to know why
  • People prefer to have options over threats
  • People want to have second chances

Stop being frustrated and misunderstood. Stop finding yourself on the losing end of an argument. With Verbal Judo you'll be able to have your say - and say what you mean.

Kept thinking it was already started

This book kept explaining why verbal judo is a good concept and how this book would guide readers through it. It did this over and over again. I would think, "haven't we already been doing that?" Also, most of the stories are about using verbal judo as a police officer, which is not really applicable in the work world. I wish there were more business scenarios.

Starts slow, gets better

This book starts slow and initially seems more of an infomercial than anything. However, after the introduction and first few chapters are out of the way, it becomes interesting and very instructive. There are lots of probably useless acronyms and lists. Best to just understand and apply the principles. Some of the accents used in the quotes are a bit off putting.

Practical & Entertaining!

I was happy to see that Audible version was available. Dealing with difficult people has been one of my greatest life challenges. This book is full of simple practical techniques that I've been able to put into regular use, with noticeable positive results. Mr. Thompson teaches the material with a lot of entertaining life stories that illustrate Verbal Judo techniques in action. Well worth the purchase!

they took their own horn for the whole book!

I'm grateful I only spent $3 on this book. When you read it skip to chapter 4 is where the book starts and you don't have to hear the introduction of them saying how wonderful they think they are. The book itself drags on even if they're Point may have success to it, their pride and self-promotion overtakes any positive influences book may have. Don't buy it!

Content great , narration distracting

The material was excellent. The Narrators use of mock voices went from distracting to uncomfortable

More than helpful, life changing.

I needed this book more than I thought I did when I purchased it. Very helpful, well written and easy to follow. I would say Im only listening to two chapters, then I find myself eight chapters in.

TMA--Too many acronyms

I generally dislike self help books, and this is a good reminder of why. The author spends too much time congratulating himself on becoming a self help guru and not enough time helping the listener to understand the techniques he is teaching. He should have more empathy! The acronyms are not memorable.

The accents used for the perps will bother some people.
