Communication has had a tough time during the past twenty years. A time of uncertainty when we have been rethinking everything from gender roles to social class. We are adapting to new patterns of marriage and divorce, a new sense of cultural identity, and the constant introduction of new technology which inevitably reshapes the way we live.
Second edition of a guide to communication within relationships, first published in 1994 as 'Why Don't People Listen?' Provides advice about improving listening skills and discusses topics such as how our past experiences affect the way we relate to people. Includes bibliography and index.
