"I believe most everyone could benefit from reading this book, as so much of our modern lifestyle is interdependent on how clearly we communicate ... So often we can think we're really getting along with someone, oblivious to the train wreck fast approaching. Blamestorming: Why Conversations go Wrong and How to Fix Them is a very thought provoking read. It contains easily absorbed information, and colorfully stated concepts that are simple to remember, making them easily accessible, powerful strategies. Another thing that's nice about this book, is that it isn't a total overhaul prescription for changing the way you interact and express yourself through conversation, it's more like a guide for avoiding common pitfalls. Excellent book." -- Andy's Iron Advice (October 13, 2014)
