The Promise That Changes Everything: I Wont Interrupt You

Trade Paperback
Recommended Price 
November 2020
About the book: 
The  Time To Think  bestselling author demonstrates why making the promise not to interrupt each other is the key to all good relationships.
What if all it took to counter political polarisation, relationship problems and workplace rivalries was a single promise? For the past few decades, Nancy Kline has been investigating the optimal conditions that lead to independent thinking. Building on her 'thinking environment' framework, here she reveals the many ways in which the pressures of conformity, inequality and technology prevent us from having meaningful, life-enhancing conversations.
Guided by the science of attention, she shares exercises and case studies of students and employees who have improved their performance through guided thinking sessions as well as families and couples who bonded after making - and enforcing - the promise.
I Won't Interrupt You  is a practical and systematic guide to how promising to reduce interruptions will lead to better relationships and calmer lives.
