Publisher's Summary

Influence and persuade people in only a few steps with hidden secrets....

Is your lack of communication skills affecting every area of your life? Is it affecting your business and work life? Your social life? Your family life? If your answer to these questions is "Yes", we are going to change that. 

Not being able to communicate affects your quality of life in ways of which you may not even be aware. Great communicators make more money; have more friends; have more options with the opposite sex; live longer; and overall, live happier and more fulfilling lives.

Here are three reasons why you should give the information in this audiobook a try:

  1. Feel comfortable while doing small talk
  2. Talk to strangers with passion
  3. Make new friends and understand other people's problems

This audiobook will make you become a master communicator in a very short period of time, so long as you take what you learn and apply it.

Communication is that one thing all of us need to share our thoughts, feelings, knowledge, and ideas to other people, or animals, perhaps. It is our way of making ourselves known to others and be with them freely and easily. Communication has always been that magical tool that binds all of us through the years, and it is what makes us discover new and special things among each other and the whole world.

Very helpful and a bargain!!

The communication in this book is awesome. It works well with teens and so far. It would be good for relationship troubles too.Insightful and useful in several dimensions. Helping us to be more human with our kids and loved ones as well as in our professional settings.This work is outstanding and should be taught in schools at all ages. We just do not get this stuff at home or in our society in general and it is so needed!!

I really enjoyed reading this book!!

This book doesn't just tell you methods for better thinking, or ways to improve memory. It goes in-depth to help you understand how and why. It uses psychological terms and practices to explain how you don't have to go above and beyond just to exercise your mind.

Valuable insight into how to communicate better!!

I really enjoy every book that has Michael Cloud written, including this one. I found it very profound, and thought-provoking. I think it resonated with me more because I am also working on my MBA and my current class is communications.

Great book for all communicators!!

This book is a compendium of sage observations, helpful advice, and–of course–several apt stories to illustrate it all. It's written in a way that would make it useful to any type of professional.I found it a very well written and useful book. I am a statistician by profession and honestly, I often struggle to engage my non-technical audience!!!

I highly recommend it.

This book has made all of my relationships more manageable. If you grew up in a dysfunctional family like I did, where communication usually happened in the form of guilt trips and passive aggression, this book can change your life. I always thought of myself as a great communicator and this showed me that I can still do better. What an excellent book about communication skills training that can give us what we really need to improve our communication skills. effective communication should be in our way of learning as it can make a great contribution for our successful life.

Best book for communication !!!!!!!!!!!!

This book goes over almost every situation in which you'll need to deal with difficult people in a work-related setting. I truly enjoyed the example phrases, and the author does an awesome job walking you through every awkward and sticky situation you could imagine. Although the information in this book about NLP and mirroring and matching was worth the price alone. This is also one of the best books, in general, I've read this year. The author provides some great information that is immediately applicable to everyone from sales people to managers to parents - basically, anyone who wants to learn more about influence and the best way to use it. The book is filled with lists of things to help you learn and tactics to use.

THE SECRET OF RELATIONSHIPS

I listen this book in one sitting. It's very well organized and is perfect for skimming, deep study, or easy review. Practical and straightforward, it is an instant desk-side companion for growing into the spouse, parent, co-worker, and friend you want to be and others need you to be. I found this book to be very readable and, unlike many books on communication skills, it is born out of real life experience in teaching thousands of couples. It is not a bunch of theoretical concepts but is practical and applicable immediately. If you are wandering what are good and bad habits, this book is the one! I especially love it because they give the bad habit then give their personal example of what they were doing.

Excellent book and relevant in so many ways!

I'm just finishing this book and I'm so glad I listen it! While I don't think anything in it is revolutionary, it is a solid read for anyone who leads or works in organizations and wants to improve how they and their organization are doing it's work. This book is turning my personal and business conversations around to a whole new and wonderful level. It was recommended to me by an associate when she heard me say I felt my communication style was holding me back. She was spot on with her recommendation.

I really enjoyed this book

Consider the skills required for playing a sport, creating art, cooking, or mastering a musical instrument. They all require extensive training, guidance and practice. Yet for basic communication, we rarely have any formal training. Most of us are just winging it. Ben and Kelly Decker turn this concept on its head with "Communicate To Influence," breaking down each element of the communications experience into a deep exploration of what works, what doesn't, and why. This book is written by experienced communications professionals FOR professionals that must 'get things done through people' via their effective, inspirational, influential communications. Instead of dumping data on your audience - inspire and motivate them. Keep your audience on the front edge of their seats - don't put them to sleep - or drive them to their cell phones.

Excellent book and relevant in so many ways!

I've been involved in proposals from the vendor side much of my career. This book brings out many things that one would assume are obvious but are not. I write proposals almost daily in a b2b selling environment. A particularly important opportunity prompted me to purchase this book, to see if there would be any tips or pointers of use. From the first few pages I was impressed, and expect you will be too.

Effective is better than efficient

There is no better management training than Manager-Tools! Believe me, I've looked...I've used their trinity as well as their hiring recommendations at both my ambulance service and in the hospital with great results. The information in the book is actionable and will tell you not only what to do but how to do it. As a long time Manager Tools podcast listener and licensee, I was very excited to read Mark's book. He did not disappoint. The Effective Manager is the best management book I have ever listen. Mark clearly writes about the important things that managers need to do to succeed.

Excellent book for communication !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is a great book that can be used to improve and better your social skills. I have listen multiple social help books and there are those that help you learn what to say and those that teach you how to say it. This book teaches about another important one. One just as important as the others... listening Many of us sole entrepreneurs are notoriously difficult to get along with, being workaholics (like I am); this book helped me significantly improve my interpersonal relationship skills.

I really enjoyed listen this book

She has a very clear depiction of several scenarios. I found many of them to be helpful and it helped me to realize some things I can change about myself. I've listen a few chapters of the book on my friend's kindle and decided to buy it since it's well written and easy to understand. It gives examples and shows how our brains work and gives methods on how to acquire knowledge easily. There's plenty of useful tips available in the book and an overall good read. It's not too long and g

Normally, I find this kind of book that has one big idea, an ideal candidate for skimming. There is often a lot of filler, and a tendency to pound away at that one idea until the book has reached an acceptable length for commercial publication. Alan Michael Cloud 's book has the one idea, that we have to relate to each other in order to communicate, and then he embroiders on that theme for the rest of the book, but it is so entertaining and chatty, that I enjoyed it well after buying into the big idea.
