“To make the structure of a difficult conversation visible, we need to understand not only what is said, but also what is not said. ... In a difficult conversation, this is usually where the real action is. ”– Quote, Douglas Stone

No. 94: Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss what Matters, by Douglas Stone
Douglas Stone's self-help book, 'Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss what Matters', has landed at No. 94 on our list of the Top 100 self-help books of all time.
Often, the most important things in our lives are the most difficult things to talk about, and that means these discussions are postponed until they reach a crisis point — if they’re not swept under the rug completely. Douglas Stone offers a step-by-step manual for dealing with some of the most difficult-to-talk-about situations we could encounter. In the process, he shows us how the structure of these conversations is always the same; a fact that we can use to our advantage. And the more prepared we are, the better we’ll be able to get our points across, and, more importantly, understand the people who are most important to us.
