From the Back Cover
“Goulston provides brilliant yet doable techniques for getting through to others. . . .This book transcends the self-help category by promoting real communication.” —Library Journal
Is there someone in your life who just won’t listen, no matter what you say? Maybe it’s someone at work: a subordinate, a team member, a client, your boss. Or maybe it’s someone at home: a partner, a parent, a defiant teen, an angry ex. If only you could get that person into a calm and receptive state of mind, you’d probably be able to work out your differences. . . .
Just Listen will get you there. In this powerful yet engaging book, acclaimed psychiatrist and business coach Mark Goulston reveals how to get through to anyone—even when successful communication seems impossible—with simple yet remarkably effective tools and techniques that can make your words compelling and break down the walls that keep you from getting through to the people you need to buy into your ideas and goals.
How effective are Mark’s techniques? One of his areas of expertise is training FBI and police hostage negotiators to handle life-or-death situations. “The same tips I teach these professionals for building empathy, de-escalating conflict, and gaining buy-in will work in any situation,” Mark says. “Whether you’re fresh out of school . . . or a CEO, once you master these skills you can take them wherever you go in your career and your life.”
Just Listen has given tens of thousands of people the tools and confidence to get through to the unreachable people in their lives. With the proven techniques in this remarkable book, you’ll learn how to turn frustrating situations into positive outcomes and rewarding relationships. Just refer to Just Listen—whenever a job, a sale, or a relationship hangs in the balance.

Mark has taken listening to a level that would change the world if people embrace it.
Of course its not just listening, its also about asking the right questions once you've listened.
