Who is a healthy person? Most people will quickly begin to talk about someone who is fit. I would have given such an answer if I had not come across the book Keys to Healthy Communication by Bobby R Patton, Rusalyn H Andrews and Jenifer Page Daily. This book was so outstanding that I was able to understand completely who a health person is, and at the end of my read, I was convinced that I had gained lots of knowledge.
 
In the earliest part of this book, we were introduced to health, and the definition of health according to the World Health Organisation (WHO) was given. From this definition, we were able to see three perspectives on health, which are physical, mental, and social well-being. This definition discredits the notion that being healthy isn’t only about physical well-being. I was more interested in mental health; this area is filled with lots of unhealthy people who don’t realise that they are unhealthy. The subject of communication and health is very direct, which entails that unhealthy communication leads to unhealthiness. How can we maintain healthy communication for our complete well-being? It has all been talked about in great detail. Grab a copy to read more.
 
When I first started this book and realised that being healthy doesn’t only mean physical healthiness, I realised that this was a book that I was going to learn a lot from, and thankfully, I did learn a lot from this book. Healthy communication seems to be a challenge for most people today, especially in the era where social media platforms are taking over. The authors of this book did justice in explaining communication and how it affects different areas of our lives using different data, tables, etc., which made the lessons very interactive and easy to grasp. The fact that it wasn’t just one person who authored this book gave room for dynamic views of the key concepts of this book. I had no challenge with the writing style; it all made sense to me.
 
I felt like this book focused more on health than communication, which is supposed to be the key topic. Also, the audience of this book would be limited owing to the medical parts of it, which wouldn’t be understood by everyone. These are the only things I feel should be worked on; aside from that, it's an outstanding read that contains no errors and depicts thorough editing. I would rate this book five out of five stars, following what has been said. I will also recommend this book to therapists, medical professionals, and lovers of self-help books.
