Item Description...
In this enlightening, Tom d'Ansembourg challenges readers to peal away their emotional mask and finally live an authentic life. Each day, millions of us walk through life with complete disregard to our own needs. We're polite and attentive, wearing the mask of the giver. Yet, deep inside, we ache for acknowledgement, balance and connection. Others may wear the aggressor's mask, fighting to be heard, demanding to be listened to, or breaking through walls to get what we want. The truth is, whatever mask we wear keeps us from connecting to our basic human needs. In this critically acclaimed book, readers will learn simple, practical skills to step outside of their emotional masks to live a genuine, authentic life. You can learn everyday communication skills to fully understand your own basic needs; discover practical tools to respectfully express your true feelings; realise the power of requesting what you want without demands or force; and, learn how to tackle life's difficult situations and conversations with ease and even excitement without blaming others; express yourself honestly and respectfully; dramatically improve the quality of your relationships; and face conflict with ease. You can find balance by staying connected to your own basic needs. Being Genuine is based on the groundbreaking work of Dr Marshall Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication process. It is a national French bestseller.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
this book is amazing!!!!  Sep 24, 2008
I can't say enough about how wonderful this book is and how helpful it has been in my line of work. What a breath of fresh air. I found this material to provide the clarity and understanding I was looking for and very easy to read. I even bought a copy for the staff to start reading with the hopes of some changes within the system I work in. Right now I am starting with myself.
NVC plus reality!   Jun 12, 2008
I bought this book after reading Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication. I enjoyed Rosenberg, but said, hey, if I started talking like this people will think I've lost my mind. And, to be honest, Rosenberg does spend a bit too much time painting himself as super-facilitator-to-breakthrough in his book. D'Ansembourg falls into this trap himself in recreating conversations (one point, the person he's speaking to does not respond, and the text reads 'obviously moved'), but nowhere near as often.

So, the big question is: is this NVC all over again, just translated from French? Yes, and no. D'Ansembourg is a big believer in NVC, but his approach is a bit more pragmatic. Instead of talking out all of the steps of NVC, D'Ansembourg recommends thinking them through both for yourself and the other person. He also goes into the finer points of creating reasonable requests, the fact that people sometimes just need recognition (to be *heard*) more than anything else, and how 'being nice' backfires both in one's relationships and in one's head. It builds off of Rosenberg's work, and adds a level of social consciousness and personal responsibility that Rosenberg touched on. D'Ansembourg goes into detail. He's obviously committed to this program, and offers his own insights and experiences with NVC. It's a deep book that bears re-reading, or at least re-browsing.

If I had to do it all over again, I'd do what I did: Rosenberg, and then this. It's the next step in turning one's communication skills from getting what one wants (peace, security) to giving what the world needs. A lovely book.
