"Wow! This is a great book! I've been hearing (listening to!) Dallas talk about this stuff for years, and I'm overjoyed for him to see his life's passion in print. He's a personal friend and has been actively in involved in leadership and helping people listen-here in our church, Word of Grace. As the Demmitt's pastor, I can assure you that they live what they teach, and what they teach about the art of listening has had an extraordinary impact on hundreds of people. I'm one of them!"
