    "Good book"

    This book met my expectations. John Maxwell has really good communication points. The book helped me to understand that connecting is not about me.

    I always loved the quote which he used in this book that "people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." Another interesting statement was that connecting and becoming a good communicator is skill and not a natural ability. He used Moses as an example.

    This is a book that I will listen to again.

    "This is abriged and missing key elements."
    What would have made Everyone Communicates, Few Connect better?

    It could be complete. I downloaded this because I am an auditory learner and I was taking a class that required this book. I was missing important information. Shame on you Mr. Maxwell.

    "My new favorite book by John Maxwell."

    I've enjoyed all the books I've read by John Maxwell but his #audible book "Everyone Communicates, Few Connect" has become my new favorite. Each page has a simple practice to effectively #connect with others that can be easily applied moments after learning it. I also enjoyed John's insight into the communicators responsibility to know and engage his/her audience. I look forward to sharing this book with those work and serve with.

    "Essential Leadership knowledge for day-to-day"

    I've listened to this book over and over. Also read the print version. That's how essential this message is to our interactions one-on-one, in a group, or with a large audience. Like faith is what makes our hopes obtainable; connecting is what makes effective communication and great leadership obtainable.

    "Another WIN!"

    I just love the way he talks. He does put the cookie jar down on the lower shelf, and I suppose I am getting fat with knowledge.

    The descriptions and lessons on how to better connect with people around us to make our communications effective are well played. They stand on integrity and honor, admitting mistakes, not trying to be perfect or to mislead your team into your own delusional ideas that they don't know any better that you're not being forthright. The continuing theme in all his books are to be someone worth being, worth listening to, and worth following.

    I am a great fan, and am greater with every book of his in my mental arsenal.
