Why a Second Edition of “Why”?
My readers often tell me that the Talker-Listener approach to communicating between people causes true transformation in their lives. “Listening into love,” some call it or “A journey into a higher quality of life.” They mention self-discovery and healthy relationships.
This second edition moves more explicitly into techniques and situations that can create, nurture, and support such deep changes. No book alone can change lives and I don’t pretend that this one will. But those who not only read, but practice and incorporate creative listening into their lives may find themselves impacted beyond expectation.
This is my hope for readers of this second edition. But if that’s too much, I hope the flat-brain theory, the tango, the card, and the practical listening techniques will lighten your path through life and broaden the smile on your face. That would be enough for me.
Specifcally, instead of one chapter of listening techniques, I spread them throughout to get you practicing sooner. The more complex ones come later.
I beefed up Managing the Flat-Brain Syndrome, that is, how to enable growth in ourselves and others.
I added more Communication Traps, those common mistakes we un-knowingly make that cause us trouble with those close to us. One we often make with youngsters (and adults) is Asking for one-word answers. And I take on that relationship-shattering urge we have to fix our partners’ problems in Fixing it — “I want a consultant, not a husband (wife).” This one can be a game-changer in a relationship.
I expanded the decision-making processes for individuals, couples, groups, and in counseling in Listening Techniques for Moving On. We also look at Motivation Levels and Balance Scales for weighing decisions.
Instead of an index I’ve given you an expansive table of contents so you’ll be able to find the sections you want later when you need them.

From on-line comments and emails
“Love, love, love this book!”
“I have never read anyone’s work who had such a grip on how people get along through talking and listening. Petersen will teach you a few moves that will help you get along better with others. It is worth its weight in gold.”
“This book is a journey into self-discovery focusing on communication techniques that promote healthy relationships.“ John
“I can't understand why it doesn't say "Millions Sold" on the cover. The contents, like many counseling materials I review, sound "corny" at first glance, but the truths contained therein are priceless!” Joel
“I was assigned this book as part of a grad school course. At first glimpse, I thought it was too simple a textbook. Ha! I was wrong! The concepts and practices of the book are amazing tools which will change the way you communicate daily, or in dyads or groups to pursue better human understanding. This book is on my mental list of most life-impacting reads ever. Love it!” Annette
“Thank you so much! Your book Why Don't We Listen Better? revolutionized my life and the lives of those around me!”
“If I could be Queen For A Day, I'd ask that everyone learn the techniques presented in this book, and be a ‘card-carrying’ listener.” Maren
“Your techniques work and have been a great tool for me in both counseling and coaching.”
“Using the Talker-Listener process saved my marriage several years ago and continues to help my husband and me communicate hot button topics with each other. We tend to start arguing and then bring out the card, not what is suggested, but once the card is there in the middle it kind of becomes a referee in our exchanges. We play by the rules, no one gets hurt and problems are solved.” Deb
“Yes, my mother was right, I DID need to read this book. Actually, EVERYONE should read this book."
