This book is an excellent resource for when difficult conversations need to take place. The guidelines explained in this book enable the reader to ask before speaking: is this necessary, is this loving, and is this truthful? Each chapter covers a different topic including having candor in leadership, having candor in families, as well as how to be honest with yourself and how to have candor with difficult people. Each chapter concludes with a helpful summary of the important points covered and reflection questions.
Helpful appendices include strategies for effective candor, the eight candor commitments, and discussion questions for groups. This is an excellent guide in having conversations most of us would rather not have but need to. I plan to use this resource when the need arises.
I received this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for this honest review.
