    "Everyone can benefit on this communication book!"

    Communication Skills is something I believe we all could benefit from whether you have them or you don’t. There will always be room for improvement. My communication skills have always been kind of poor because I do not feel confident when talking to people. This in unfortunate because having poor communication can hinder the true image of who a person really is. In this book, the author teaches you how to master your communication skills and become a person people like. In Chapter 1 he teaches you about the communication process and how to identify your own communication style. After you identify it, he teaches you the different things you can do to become an engaging conversationalist.

    After listening to this book, I learned a lot about myself and what I need to do to become good at talking with people. I don’t want to miss out on any opportunities in life because I was too scared to communicate something!

    This is one of the best self-help books I have ever read. I found this book to be very helpful for me. I highly recommend reading this book because you are the most important person in you life and you should start treating yourself like it.

    "Fantastic tool for overcoming anxiety and shyness"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. Most of my friends have great ideas but are too shy or awkward to express them properly. With this book, they could finally learn how to properly express their talents.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The section about how to be likable is important, as being assertive and communicative without knowing how to get people to like you is pointless. That's when you go from being charismatic to being "loud" or "bossy".


    Any additional comments?

    If you struggle wish shyness or anxiety, or just want to make a good impression at your workplace, this book can help. I highly recommend it for everyone who has a job where you have to work with others.

    "Greatly Improved My Communication Skills"
    Would you listen to Communication Skills again? Why?

    My communication skills were lacking before listening to this audio book. Sure, I knew how to converse with others, but I wasn’t good at picking up on body language from others. I never thought about how much my body language affected they way I was read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book on communication skills really helped me broaden mine, and I was able to get through a few job interviews and land a job.


    Which character – as performed by Joshua Mackey – was your favorite?

    N/a


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone struggling to get that job offer during an interview should definitely read this to improve their communication skills.

    "Learn the Best Communication Skills"
    If you could sum up Communication Skills in three words, what would they be?

    Concise, Interesting, and Helpful


    What other book might you compare Communication Skills to and why?

    Ace McCloud has so many self help books that can compare with communication skills. I would compare it to his Leadership book because communication is vital to being a leader and many of the concepts are similar in the books.


    What does Joshua Mackey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Joshua Mackey has a real talent for story telling. He can even bring a non-fiction book to life. His voice inflections keep everything interesting and bring out hidden points in the book that you might glance over if you were just reading it. His emphasis puts everything into view.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Communication Skills?

    There are many things that I will apply from this book, but the most interesting and useful for me is the use of body language. This part of the book helped me to understand what I was conveying with my body language and how to read others when communicating with them.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has excellent suggestions on how to communicate better in business, on the street and with your friends and family. It teaches you how to be charismatic, how to get what you want through communication, suggestions on body language and the best points of conversation.

    "Being better at communicating just got easy"
    If you could sum up Communication Skills in three words, what would they be?

    The three words that I would use to sum up Communication Skills would be informative, logical, and helpful.


    What other book might you compare Communication Skills to and why?

    I think a book that I would compare to Communication is How To Talk To Anyone: 92 Little Tricks For Big Success In Relationships by Leil Lowndes. They both bring logical and easy to follow tips on how to become a better communicator.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    N/A


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it was. I couldn't pull myself away from this book upon hearing the first sentence. Mr. McCloud knows how to draw your attention and keep your attention from start to finish in all of his self-help books.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is helpful for everyone, especially those like me who are shy and tend to be quiet all the time. Communication Skills is a crucial tool in becoming a better communicator and making your life better in all aspects. Ace McCloud really brings you logical steps and tips to ease yourself into communicating better and regularly. Its a book I highly recommend to anyone and everyone.

    "Great advice for being a better communicator"

    This audio is jam packed with helpful advice. If you are looking for solid strategies that are easy to implement, I would definitely recommend listening to this. I tried the advice on mirroring with my girl friend and was shocked at how well she responded, and she didn't even notice I was doing it. The tips on how to be more persuasive and be a better conversationalist was useful too. I also started practicing using better eye contact, smiling more and using peoples names more often in conversations and it really is amazing what a few little adjustments can make! If you find people aren't as responsive as you would like them to be, be sure to check this out.

    "Strong "how to" guide that really hits the spot."
    What did you like most about Communication Skills?

    I liked the clarity with which Ace McCloud approached the subject, and the comprehensive nature of his guide. I found the suggestions for striking up a conversation both interesting and plausible.


    What other book might you compare Communication Skills to, and why?

    This audio book is typical of all that I have listened to from this author/narrator combination; jam packed full of useful and accessible information,which is presented in a fluid, interesting style. The duo certainly have their own communication skills up to speed!


    What about Joshua Mackey’s performance did you like?

    I thoroughly enjoyed the parts where Joshua was speaking about different styles of talking, and using different voices to mirror the words. A quality narrator.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Talk like you've never talked before; listen as though your life depended on it; and laugh like it's contagious!


    Any additional comments?

    A good, solid guide to speaking, listening, laughing, body language, persuasion, and starting a conversation with confidence. A must for anyone who feels self conscious or ill equipt when communicating.

    "Communication is everything!"

    I'm shy by nature and struggle to communicate with others but after listening to this audio-book I feel much more confident in my ability to speak with others clearly and effectively. I learned about what can get in the way of communication, how to listen properly, and how non verbal communication works.

    The chapter on how to create rapport was particularly interesting and I learned a lot about body language and how to use it to increase connection with others. The audio-book also provides tips on how to appear more confident and how to start conversations, which I found very helpful.

    I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who has trouble speaking with others, and anyone seeking to improve their communication skills - this audio-book is a great tool!

    "Great Advice For More Effective Communication"
    What made the experience of listening to Communication Skills the most enjoyable?

    When listening to an audiobook on this topic, you are obviously going to be very keen to hear exactly how well the content is communicated. Maybe even a little too ready to criticise they actual communication.

    However, there was no reason to be disappointed. Ace McCloud does a great job of clearly setting out his subject and he comprehensively covers all the areas you might be interested in. Not only was the background on the subject fascinating, there was a lot of practical advice that you can use straight away.


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

    I really enjoyed the sections that covered areas such as laughter, the language of rhetoric and how to use your body and posture to effect your communication. For someone who feels very self-conscious when public speaking, this advice was invaluable.


    Which character – as performed by Joshua Mackey – was your favourite?

    For a book about communication it is essential to have a great communicator as a narrator. Luckily, Joshua Mackey does a great job and really gets across the message of the book effectively. He is very adept at using his voice to put across a point and there were some parts which demonstrated why a book like this is always better in audio than on the page.


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone would like to be a more confident and effective communicator and most likely everyone has also found that they have not put their point across as well we they had wished. So, the advice in this book was not only well-presented but invaluable.

    As someone who struggles at times with communication and getting my point across I found this very useful and the amount of tips provided was excellent. It breaks down different methods of communication and the importance of listening, while it also talks about negativity. All these sections can be listened to again with ease and you're bound to pick something else up you might have missed before.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I enjoyed the part that focused on shy people and that gave some tips on conversation starters.


    Any additional comments?

    Like other books I've listened to by Ace McCloud, this book is extremely informative and doesn't just identify problems, it actually gives you advice on how to address communication issues. Top stuff!

    What other book might you compare Communication Skills to, and why?

    Another good book by the same author that is related to it and therefore in a way comparable is 'Motivation'.


    What about Joshua Mackey’s performance did you like?

    The narrator's voice on a whole, was easy to listen to which made the process of listening to the book more enjoyable - there are some cases (not with any books from this author!) where the story might be enthralling but the voice of the narrator is nothing but a turn off.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No.

    "Everything you need to know about communication!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Communication Skills to be better than the print version?

    I'm not sure - I think print version would be equally good, it really depends on the person. I like some of audio books but some things are better written.


    If you’ve listened to books by Ace McCloud before, how does this one compare?

    It's equally informative and information is presented quite clearly.


    What does Joshua Mackey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Given examples are expressed in the way that you can see difference in how people react and how they express their emotions, which is very helpful when considering communication skills.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really - it's more of an informational and encouraging audio book than anything else.


    Any additional comments?

    It’s such a helpful audio book – written in a very accessible way with clear directions about how to approach different types of communication. It takes you through all different styles of communication and how people usually react to them. It gives some great tips about what to avoid if you want to be a good communicator (watch out for distractions and not being focused!) and what to do if you want to be an efficient communicator (think about active listening and appropriate time to ask a question). It also includes a very helpful chapter entirely focused on how to develop and use charisma in life in order to be a successful person and a communicator. It covers all-important aspects of interpersonal communication including body language, face expression and timing of your stories. And obviously, self-confidence and positive outlook of life is very important too!

    Would you listen to Communication Skills again? Why?

    Yes, definitely. As the author says "communication is a process" I would recommend listening this book at least a few times to remember all the useful advice on this topic.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are not very skilled with communication skills than this book can help you improve your confidence and become a more communicative person. On a daily basis we communicate each day and the way we communicate is very important. Being a great conversationalist will definitely help a lot. Knowing how to communicate properly one can have great working and personal relationships. This book is absolutely great to teach the art of communication, body language and verbal communication. It consists of great strategies and techniques that can be easily applied to improve your persuading skills, conquer communication barriers , become more diplomatic and at the same time more likable and charismatic.
    The author gives superb advice to practice – “ remember your own victories , record them and view them when you need an extra motivation”!
