      "You Got To Be Interesting to Be Listened To"

      This audiobook is too descriptive, and provides nothing new or exciting about great communications. Too basic and common sensical for beginners! Written by a so called "great communicator" (as the author tries to at least give that impression), his presentation is too monotonic and unimpressive. A bit boring and putting listeners to sleep because not much "meat" inside the program. He is not a good story teller either. Also own the first edition of this audiobook and the book. This updated edition is just a superficial update--not many new ideas, new insights, and new skills since its first edition in 1990s. Try "You are the Message" by Roger Ailes. An old book, but more insights!!
