Kane's book, based on Buddhism's Four Elements of Right Speech, is a simple and practical guide for learning communication skills that inevitably result in better relationships, enhanced self-esteem, and conscious living. The 5 steps for communicating like the Buddha are:

  2. Speak consciously, concisely, and clearly.
  3. Listen to others.
  4. Regard silence as a part of speech.
