“Calmness is paramount and one of the most usable skills in almost all aspects of life. It doesn’t matter if you are entering conflict or climbing a mountain. Calmness helps us to focus. It allows us to digest information and objectively make a decision. When in conflict with another, calmness provides us structure. It provides us the key skill to attempt to resolve. It allows us to think and to evaluate the conflict, the environment, and the potential impact our actions will have on the conflict.”
“I have yet to come across a book that covers so many areas within conflict as this does. The insight into perception and especially calmness helped me tremendously as a teacher.”
“One of the best books I have ever read on the topic of verbal conflict and resolution. I recommend it to everyone, regardless of their occupation or qualifications.”
