Re: The Martial Art of Difficult Conversations
I remember reading Aikido in Everyday Life and thinking it included some rather blatantly manipulative strategies for "getting my way" (including in emotionally intimate relationships) but no real guidance on "finding my way." Didn't seem "spiritual," didn't really seem connected to "aikido" in a way that resonated for me, and didn't really strike me as great relationship advice.
Oh well. Been wrong before.
