In You Can’t Text a Tough Conversation, Mike Bechtle discusses how to handle tough conversations in a healthy way. The book includes many key elements that explore how to improve one’s friendships and relationships. I enjoyed the passages about building and retaining trust, and I also really liked the section about encouraging honest feedback from others. The book examines a lot of important issues, such as how to make our relationships “safe” through good communication. One of my favorite illustrations that Bechtel used was when he compared dancing to communication. Though we are part of a society that relies heavily on technology, this book shows the value of face-to-face conversations.
