(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Raising Children Compassionately: Parenting the Nonviolent Communication Way (Paperback)
I'd heard a lot of extremely positive commentary about Marshall Rosenberg, all coming from practitioners or participants of his NVC (Non-Violent Communication) programs. With that feedback in hand, the description for this product compelled me to order this book, but I'm sorry to say that I didn't find the book worthwhile.

First, even though the publication is 48 pages long, there's very little real content inside. It's extremely short, takes about a half-hour to read in its entirety, and it provides little more than a handful of (admittedly heartfelt) anecdotes about several positive interactions the author has had with his own children. However, most of the insights in this booklet are adequately described in the product description. While Rosenberg's other books may be bursting with wisdom, this one was very, very light. Not recommended, despite its low price.
