A Good Listener - Book Club


How to Listen feels like a manual for life.

In twelve bite-sized sections, author Katie Columbus demonstrates the incredible power of listening without judgement – showing you how to apply the skills that she and her colleagues at Samaritans have learned to your own life.

Expect a mix of inspiring stories and practical tips and exercises that will make you think about listening differently – and help you be an even better listener for the people who matter most in your life.
