5.0 étoiles sur 5 A truly "must read" book. 19 juillet 2014
Par Paul Jones - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Every school teaches reading and writing. Speaking and listening are harder, and not often attempted. For everyone who uses spoken words to persuade, to sell, to inform, to inspire, there is no better text to study.

Truly listening is an art that seems rare, these days. I have known people who really listen and are a delight to be with. They ignore distractions and are not waiting to top or disagree with what you are saying, but hearing you.

Adler has said, "Before you can say 'I agree' or 'I disagree', you must be able to say,'I understand'".

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must-Read (Especially for Introverts) 5 juillet 2016
Par Kelsey Greider - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is best read after Mortimer Adler’s companion piece, How to Read a Book, which outlines the responsibilities and strategies needed to successfully engage in reading and writing. Similarly, in How to Speak, How to Listen Adler offers the same practical and direct approach to the reciprocal processes of speaking and listening. Adler focuses on building his own ethos throughout the book through a comprehensive overview of the art of rhetoric using real life examples and references to others’ work.

Adler takes us through the entire process, beginning with our deficits: communication pitfalls, educational gaps, and hubris. He distinguishes between different types of speeches, such as what he calls the “Sales Talk” or lectures in order to strategize for varied motivations for speaking. These chapters of the book are detailed and user-friendly for those in educational fields and beyond. This book is not about pedagogy; it is intended to be an academic instruction manual for the masses. Adler establishes this objective early on.

At the end of the book, Adler emphasizes the reciprocity of speaking and listening by connecting communication to our collective sense of humanity. He sees this as particularly important in an increasingly digital world where communication feels one-sided and is delivered less often through personal interaction. Building, maintaining, and honing these skills is essential to our happiness. We need them to participate in all levels of community: international, national, regional, and local politics. Also as we get older, communication becomes an increasingly necessary tool for bonding and creating relationships with others. However, at the end, Adler tells us why these things really matter: speaking and listening are essential to learning, and the lifelong acquisition of knowledge, friendship, and discovery is imperative to engage in the world. Life does not mean much in a vacuum. How to Speak, How to Listen is about the reciprocity of human connection to a world that seems disconnected.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An important book 28 octobre 2013
Par CMC - Publié sur

This book is valuable for advancing the cause of peace. Adler argues that conversation between two people should be with acceptance of each other as equals. Conversation should aim toward mutual understanding. The participants can disagree, but they should understand each other. He argues that this skill in speaking and listening is vital in escaping war or violence. In the last chapter he puts this concern in a clear perspective. He argues that the skills are vital for the success of western civilization and it's survival. I think he is successful in his writing in making this point. His passion is not so clear until the reader finishes the book. However, a different organization of the book would probably not be quite so good. Only the diligent reader tastes the sweetest fruit.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful how-to book. 10 juillet 2015

If all how-to books were written like this I would read them for the sheer enjoyment of the writing. The writing style and format are clear, well-structured, approachable, and concise. Learning lots of valuable tips and approaches for better speaking and listening without coming off like a used car salesman, and am learning a lot about writing well by example in this book. I have How to Write as well and haven't read it yet, but Mr. Adler practices what he preaches. Really enjoyed his chapter describing the true, uncorrupted definition of rhetoric and its value.
