Book: Crucial Conversations: Patterson • Grenny • McMillan • Switzler

  1. I was reading this book as part of a work thing. There's a part of the first chapter that's describing the physiological response your body may have to a heated emotional discussion.
    That sounded just completely unreasonable to me. Yes we're pumped full of adrenaline but this sounds like hyperbole. Does this actually happen? Whenever I find myself in a very heated debate, I find I think clearly and am more sharp in my responses. Does this really happen?

    I don't know, but I do know it's a business skills book, not a medical book. I'd be skeptical of any medical claims in such a publication.

    Makes me think about Robin Williams quote: God gave men both a penis and a brain, but unfortunately not enough blood supply to run both at the same time.
