    I wish I could hear it! There wasn't any volume control that I could find, and it would be extremely helpful to have one so I could hear this essential topic which needs so much attention nowadays. Thank you. p.s. Please do NOT give any one or organization, etc., my email address. Thank you for your consideration. L. Hamilton

    The ability to listen is a vastly underrated skill. I disagree withe the video that there aren't any book on Listening. Michael Ende's Momo (not just for young adults as we now call them) and Otto Scharmer's Theory U are two works I would recommend with enthusiasm.
