Description

From New York Times bestselling author Heather Morris comes the memoir of a life of listening to others.

In Listening Well, Heather will explore her extraordinary talents as a listener—a skill she employed when she first met Lale Sokolov, the tattooist at Auschwitz-Birkenau and the inspiration for her bestselling novel. It was this ability that led Lale to entrust Heather with his story, which she told in her novel The Tattooist of Auschwitz and the bestselling follow up, Cilka's Journey.

Now Heather shares the story behind her inspirational writing journey and the defining experiences of her life, including her profound friendship with Lale, and explores how she learned to really listen to the stories people told her—skills she believes we can all learn.

Thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for the ARC of this book. I have read all of Heather's books and they are excellent. So it wasn't too much of a stretch for me to want to read this non-fiction one on listening!
This is a wonderful book on the power of listening, truly listening. Heather shares the story behind her inspirational writing journey and the defining experiences of her life, including her profound friendship with Lale, and explores how she learned to really listen to the stories people told her—skills she believes we can all learn.

LISTENING WELL-Heather Morris

I received this free Kindle book for the purpose of review. Great book, not only from a historical sense but more importantly how to truly listen to someone. Ms. Morris wrote this book about all the things she learned from Lale Sokolov, the tattooist at Auschwitz-Birkenau and the inspiration for her best selling novel The Tattooist of Auschwitz.

By listening and not taking notes but truly undivided attention Ms. Morris learned a man's story that had many sides of emotions and feelings. She had to listen to be able for Lale to share his story. Many times they had to stop as he recalled painful memories. She was an amazing friend to Lale and she learned so much she was able to write multiple books as a result of this friendship.

Great book-great listening skills to apply and historically accurate.

As I finish this book I am reminded that we are in a difficult circumstance in our country and my prayer is we will never see another need for a Tattooist.

Special thank you to St Martin Press and NetGalley for allowing me to read and review this digital ARC of Listening Well.

Heather Morris is an author that I will read whatever she puts into the world. I loved all three of her previous books and I knew I had to read Listening Well. In this beautiful work of non-fiction you truly gain the understanding of how important truly being a good listener is. This book is a share of the research and interviews of Lane (from Tattooist of Auschwitz). If you have enjoyed Heather's previous books this one will suck you in too. Really enjoyed this read
