In an age where everyone relies on digital ways to communicate with each other, it’s important to remember the importance of having a face-to-face conversation. In You Can't Text a Tough Conversation by Mike Bechtle, he looks at the difficulties of having some conversations and how we can have these important conversations when our culture has moved away from the ways we traditionally communicated in the past.
The book is split into four sections, the process of conversation, tools for a healthy conversation, skills for healthy conversation, and growing into connection. I was really interested in this book and thought it was a great topic to address, especially since I also find myself relying on texting as opposed to speaking directly to people. I think this is a great book for anyone who feels like they are struggling in getting their words heard in a friendship or a relationship with a spouse or significant other. Mike Bechtle offers many things for the reader to think about as they look into his book.
