Listen!

Are you a good listener? Have you ever eavesdropped? Does it matter how well people listen (and their reasons for listening)? The books on this list can help you imitate what you hear, improve what you say to others, and deal with the frustration of people who do not seem to hear what you are trying to say. Some also deal with the effects of deliberate eavesdropping or accidental overhearing. What are the legal and moral ramifications of deliberate eavesdropping or even wiretapping? Give an ear to all aspects of listening in this varied collection of books.
