I loved this book. It has a great many ideas that will help in all walks of life. It helps you think about things and organize your thoughts and ideas.
It is great for writers, poets, song writers etc. but just as useful for inventors, business owners and people who need to figure things out or make plans.
I hoped to get more out of this book. The other reviews were encouraging but there just isn't enough meat in this audio book to make it desirable. It does have some good points but far shy in number to be a decent book.
I would highly recommend The Modern Scholar Way with Words: Writing Rhetoric and the Art of Persuasion to help you learn how to engage your readers and listeners. It actually covers more than just writing. As for books specifically on public speaking I would try The Art of Public Speaking before recommending this one.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I chose this book over some others in my wish list that were somewhat longer in length. I was very pleased.
This book isn't filled with any 'fluff' but every chapter presents something new and interesting, each having studies and experiments backing them up.
Each of the 50 points were pertinent, interesting and not always obvious. I would say this is a must have book for anyone who needs to sell, garner support, or even avoid being persuaded if they don't want to be.
I'm all thumbs and they're all up for this one.
Who would think a subject like this could be so interesting and enjoyable. It is full and interesting from start to finish. The author/narrator is clear, cheerful and very interesting to listen to. I found it will help not only in writing but also speaking.
Very highly recommended for anyone whether writing, in sales, public speaking or just plain communicating.
Business Physicist and Astronomer
I learned a lot and enjoyed the read. There is insight from a media professional in this little gem of a book. And it's delivered by a trained pro.
A+ with gratitude.
