Simply Said is the essential handbook for business communication. Do you ever feel as though your message hasn't gotten across? Do details get lost along the way?

Brief Review

Would only recommend if you want a concise brief review of professional communication. The clean-cut dry delivery may not be interesting otherwise.

Everyone who presents or is in a sales position should read this book!!

I have read several books on communication and I am always trying to better myself and learn. This book by far helped me the most and I’ve recommended it to several of my coworkers. I’d say it is a must read for anyone in sales or if you do presentations to groups of people. I have read several times and I learn more every time I read it. Definitely 5 stars from me.

I used to suck at communicating, now I am better!

Definitely interesting! Now I want to use these skills, and help others. I listened to this book, never read a page. It was one big wonderful speech to me. It was more the speech I wish one of my parents could of given me when I was a young adult. Now into my mid 30's, I have self recognition and have struggled with my intelligence by directing, and not leading. This book WILL help YOU! It has me...

Great +1 to those growing as leaders

This was a solid read that helped tie together a few different communication methods. Spoken word, presentations and even digital communications were covered here in a very comprehensive way. Lots of real world examples throughout the book.
