Knowing in part may make a fine tale, but wisdom comes from seeing the whole.

This book appeals to a variety of ages, I recently used this book in a discussion about communication with a group of adults. It was a nice start to identify how you communicate and which communication pitfalls we might fall into. We all have our "blind spots" and this book brought a variety of communication styles to light.
