    The words you use say a lot about you...but the way you put them together says even more. Your grammar makes an immediate - and lasting - impression on your boss, your co-workers, your teachers, and even your friends. We all use grammar, but many of us could use it better. Grammar Smart is a witty, irreverent, and entertaining approach to grammar to help you write and speak with clarity and confidence.

    Overall

    I found this to be painful to listen to, but if you can make it past the unfunny banter, I think you will improve and become more confident with grammar. I purchased this as part of my GMAT prep and feel like this program helped a great deal. It's pretty basic stuff that I feel like I learned in school but had since forgotten. Some of you smarties might not find it useful. Great for those of us who went to public schools! :)

    Whether you're self-employed, a middle manager, or a Fortune 500 executive, it's easy to get stuck in a humdrum life and only fantasize about "what could have been." Motivational speaker Steve Chandler helps you turn that way of thinking into "what will be."

    "Four stars for content, terrible to listen to"
    Overall

    This book has good content worth 4 stars but the tone of the reader (author) is beyond terrible. I had read other reviews before buying and thought it was ridiculous that some of the reviews lowered the rating based on the quality of the reader. I was wrong! I can't begin to describe how awful the reader's tone and voice is. I would describe it as a combination of the Ben Stein character in Ferris Bueler's Day Off and the Talking Al Gore doll from a Simpsons episode that would say in a droning voice "You are hearing me talk.? I literally thought I had a defective tape adapter the first time listened to it.

    There is a passage that talks about "igniting the fire within" and being childlike in the most droning, dispassionate voice you can imagine. The content just doesn?t fit and is almost lost because of the voice.

    I believe the key to benefiting from self-help books is reading or listing to the program more than once. I have tried to listen to this program a second time and can't do so because the voice is so bad.

  • RoAne's Rules: How to Make the Right Impression: What to Say and How to Say It

    Thousands of people have attended Susan RoAne's seminars and used her smart, savvy, sassy advice to change their lives. This original audio program explains how you can present exactly the image you want to convey and create the best impression wherever you go.

    Gregg says: "Great book for people raised by wolves"
    "Great book for people raised by wolves"
    Overall

    The first third of the book should be titled 'Intro to Earth for Martians'. Real basic stuff with little to no insight. The rest of the book provides cursory-commonsense overviews and checklists, too thin to be useful, for hosting parties, being a good guest, giving/receiving gifts, networking, etc, etc.

    Insightful excerpt on receiving gifts: 'Always say thank you and never degrade the gift giver or gift, you may not get another one.' -Susan RoAne

    I found two or three useful canned lines for dealing with difficult situations.

  • Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most

    Holiday gatherings can be stressful times for families, and occasionally the conversation around the holiday table can get heated. Difficult Conversations shows you a way out of this dilemma; it teaches you how to handle even the toughest conversations more effectively and with less anxiety.

    Jean-Pierre says: "A must-hear audiobook !"
    "Silly but helpfull"
    Overall

    Examples are downright silly, over simplified, and unrealistic, but I still found this book to be extremely beneficial in both personal and professional applications. Highly recommend.
