Summary

In her most affirming and life-changing book yet, Dr. Harriet Lerner teaches us how to restore love and connection with the people who matter the most. In The Dance of Connection we learn what to say (and not say) when:



We need an apology, and the person who has harmed us won't apologize or be accountable
We don't know how to take a conversation to the next level when we feel desperate
We feel worn down by the other person's criticism, negativity, or irresponsible behavior
We have been rejected or cut off, and the other person won't show up for the conversation
We are struggling with staying or leaving, and we don't know our "bottom line"
We are convinced that we've tried everything, and nothing changes
Filled with compelling personal stories and case examples, Lerner outlines bold new "voice lessons" that show us how to speak with honor and personal integrity, even when the other person behaves badly.
Whether we're dealing with a partner, parent, sister, or best friend, The Dance of Connection teaches us how to navigate our most important relationships with clarity, courage, and joyous conviction.

Listen at 1.5x speed

I loved Dance of Anger and Brene Brown mentioned this book in one of her talks so I figured it would be a sure win.
The narration is definitely the worst thing about this recording. Even at 1.25 speed its too slow.
The content is good, although it's necessary to sift through the stories for the jewels of wisdom.
Overall, there is some great learning to be had but not the best audiobook I have experienced.

Really good, helpful book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a very good book to help you say what you need to say when you need to say it most... It also helps you realize that saying "nothing" is ok, especially when you need to get anger under control or process what has happened first. Also, just b/c you might want to discuss something doesn't mean the other party is willing to, now or ever, and sometimes we have to deal with that.

What did you like best about this story?

Coping strategies.

What didn’t you like about Harriet Lerner’s performance?

She sounded like she was trying too hard to enunciate each word perfectly and spontaneity and rhythm and emphasis were left out b/c of it. It did not sound natural. Nonetheless, I became accustomed to her style of speaking and gained useful info from the book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. I think it would be hard to listen to all at once b/c some topics need time to be thought over and digested. It's a self-help book, not a thriller.

Any additional comments?

Overall, I would recommend it. Be patient with the narration. There's good stuff in there.
