    From asking a waiter for an unusual substitution to urging a service manager to get your car finished sooner to swaying your significant other toward a particular film or show, many of the decisions you make are decided by talking. And no matter why you engage in face-to-face talk, there's no way to insulate yourself from the dangers of miscommunication. These 24 mind-opening lectures are your chance to learn more about how you communicate verbally, the common problems you can encounter in doing so, and how you can improve your own effectiveness.

    Where does Effective Communication Skills rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Brief view of the different steps , factors and implications involved in conversationGender's sides, intonation patterns, manners and skills are conidered. It is good enough for tips


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Effective Communication Skills?

    Gender's sides


    Did Professor Dalton Kehoe do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    So so-By listening is is limited. Because of conversation implies visual approach, the book does not convince at all


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Good try


    Any additional comments?

    It is a good view and STUDY but maybe with visual aids would be excellent. What do you think?
