Listen Like a Badass

How to practice empathy, resolve your inner crises, and live in freedom (with a little help from the FBI)

About the Book

In Listen Like a Badass, Josh Race has pulled out the common threads of hostage crisis negotiation, and the revelations that come from a conversational listening practice. 

Not only do we struggle to listen well to others, we don't do a great job listening inward to ourselves! We are being hijacked by our primitive emotional brains.

But if you tune into your inner voice, it's possible to notice when the hijacking is going down, learn to remain calm, and have breakthroughs consciously choosing to engage with life.
