This book nails the subtle nuances of feedback - getting at all the psychology behind our reactions and reluctance to both giving and receiving. Jerry is one of my favorite writers in IT and psychology. This one is perhaps experiencing a revival as one of his early books that was somewhat neglected for a period. It's a great book to use in a study group or for preparing a workshop on feedback.
Or, just plain old read it alone to understand your own dynamics on this important topic. It's also now This book nails the subtle nuances of feedback - getting at all the psychology behind our reactions and reluctance to both giving and receiving.
It's also now available via Leanpub as an e-book! Read it, you won't regret it! This is a fairly difficult book to review; I ended up restarting after reading half of the book and then had to review my notes a few times after completing the book before I was able to come to a conclusion that I'm both intellectually and emotionally satisfied with. This is a book that presents a lot of critical information, but it fails at the presentation in a number of ways: 1.

The information density is WAY too high for this book to be read straight through once; it should really be read a number of times, preferably after communication failures -- so that those failures are fresh in the reader's memory. This book doesn't simply cover "giving and receiving feedback" in the sense of "knowing how to give useful feedback," but actually covers a lot of psychological mechanisms involved in both giving and receiving feedback as well as communication essentials.
But the huge range of topics is done a disservice by the fact that the book is only around pages. So not only is it incredibly dense, but it also covers a large breadth. Due to the breadth of this book, it reads more like a summary of common fallacies about communication, rather than something focused on feedback.
This is partially due to the expansion of "feedback" from the common idea of "verbal or written feedback" to "every kind of stimulus that can affect a person. As a result of this overarching though technically correct definition, the book really wanders across topics such as non-verbal feedback, situational nuances, and contextual difference between participants in the conversation.
The authors attempt to group everything in layers, so that you attack one layer at a time and delve progressively deeper into what it means to communicate with another person, but as a result, there's a complete loss of focus due to the sheer breadth and density of what they themselves are trying to communicate to the reader.
This isn't to say that there are some great and quotable nuggets of wisdom, or that the book isn't useful -- there are lots of nuggets and the book is incredibly useful! The presentation just fails its contents. There isn't really much more I can add beyond that. I would recommend this to people who want to be better communicators, but with the caveat that they should be ready to read it multiple times in multiple ways.
They attack the problem of communication in different, but very much related ways. Jan 02, Zhexi Bonnie rated it it was amazing Shelves: to-reread.
I created a re-read shelf for books like this one. I would re-read sometime. Feedback comes in many forms, it is embedded in human interactions, essentially about information gathering, sharing, extraction and reflection. As entertaining as illuminating. This is a seemingly simple book, that at first glance says some obvious things, but they are things we rarely pay attention to. This book gives you the ability to understand that the problems when you give or receive feedback badly, and the tool to give and receive it effectively.
The typography of the Kindle edition wasn't perfect, but that did not take away from the value of the messages. I'm hard pressed to think of someone who would not bene This is a seemingly simple book, that at first glance says some obvious things, but they are things we rarely pay attention to. I'm hard pressed to think of someone who would not benefit from reading this book, if only to better understand yourself and your reactions to others. And like all good books of this type, it has an extensive annotated bibliography for those who want to dig deeper.
Covers feedback from a great many angles forcing you to think, reflect and rethink many aspects of interaction, collaboration and communication. The structure and writing style was at odds with my learning habits when it comes to reading and required skipping back and forth all the time.
Many examples and stories felt constructed and not so real. These are minor gripes and the book contains a wealth of advice on how to master feedback. Instead of presenting one or t Covers feedback from a great many angles forcing you to think, reflect and rethink many aspects of interaction, collaboration and communication.
Instead of presenting one or two models for good feedback, it makes available a multitude of options and considerations from a large range of sources. A good investment of time. Nov 12, Jeff rated it it was amazing Shelves: career , development , leadership , greatreads. This is not just a great work book, but a great "life" book. Feedback is everywhere. Thanks Alex G. Wished I read it years sooner! Dec 08, Bobby Ratliff rated it liked it Shelves: work , e-books. This book is thought provoking because feedback is something we give and receive daily.
The authors have put their finger on some challenges of feedback, and how to get better at it. Reminds me of "Crucial Conversations. Aug 10, Ron Hurst rated it it was amazing.

What did you say? : the art of giving and receiving feedback
Feedback — both positive and negative — is essential to helping managers enhance their best qualities and address their worst so they can excel at leading. Feedback providers first note the time and place in which a behavior occurred. Then they describe the behavior — what they saw and heard. They say that managers should encourage employees to worry less about their weaknesses and instead focus on their strengths. Our research and experience at the Center for Creative Leadership CCL lead us to a different conclusion: Feedback — both positive and negative — is essential to helping managers enhance their best qualities and address their worst so they can excel at leading. When you focus only on strengths, you lull people into believing there are no areas in which they need to improve. It also lets managers off the hook for fostering necessary — and sometimes difficult — development in their reports and co-workers, which ultimately compromise organizational effectiveness.
