If you've been following my blog, you know that the point of the book is this:

Nothing is more critical to the quality of our lives than our relationships, and nothing is more critical to our relationships than how we communicate.

U&ME is self-help with substance.  It's written for everyone who'd like to improve the quality of his or her life, and who believes that books still matter.

You'll be able to relate to stories of my connection with Kent, who'd just lost his leg in a bike accident, and Ellen a counselor, and even more to the experiences of my son Lincoln and retired fly-fisherman Bert, Insurance CEO Jim, frustrated athlete Curtis, Turing Test confederate Brian Christian, high schooler Tuyen Bolton, 19-year olds Samantha and Ryan, life-partners Mark and Ryan, and dozens of others who are working to improve the quality of their communication.

AND you'll learn from more than just stories.  Each chapter offers practical advice based on cutting-edge theory and research.  

U&ME doesn't settle for over-simplified lists of "how-tos."  The first three chapters build a simple but powerful model that shows you how to help make your communication as personal as possible.  The next seven chapters describe how to apply this model to various life-arenas, including online contacts, dating, business, politics, and learning situations.  And the last chapter summarizes the book into three steps toward enhancing the quality of your life.

U&ME is available in both print and electronic versions, and from not only TIP but also and Barnes & Noble.

If you read it and like it, share your experience with your friends, family, and social media contacts. 

If you read it and don't like it, please let me know.
