So-so

There is some useful info. Overall the book was a bit bland and outdated. The author assumed relationships would be heterosexual and referred to women as girls.

very helpfull for me. This book change my life.

The concepts discussed are great. Each one is important. But I think it's too compact. Each chapter could have been a little longer adding some context. I made note of some background reading required to understand some concepts. I

I don't normally get bad reviews, but

I think the author should have put a little bit more time and effort into a specific story most of the information I saw in the first 6 chapters I could have gotten out of a basic textbook or simple information on communication, I do appreciate his efforts and now he put this together but I think that some of these issues are super basic for me as a salesperson, this might work good for you it just wasn't a fit for me, whoever did the audio it was rather monotone. I purchased and then returns this book.

can do better

This is a list of "to do" and "not to do" actions, read in a boring manner. Sure, the list contains valid advice, but I don't think I will be able to remember any of it.

The communication information jackpot.

A true goldmine of communication information! Each chapter concisely addresses aspects of verbal and nonverbal communication in a way that is easy to understand and has real-world application suggestions. While reading you start to recognize your own mistakes and mishaps in communication and are provided with relevant alternative responses. This is one of the greatest and least expensive investments I’ve made in my life and relationships and every day look forward to applying the knowledge in this book. Thank you Ian, truly.

Effective Communication Skills Guide.

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. Your wisdom, enthusiasm, knowledge and joy of empowering others shines through--almost as good as being in your class! Thank you so much for sharing how to communicate better--a skill that we ALL constantly need to be aware of and work on every day. I especially liked your 12 day plan to improve. I love this book so much i recommended this book.

This book really had me thinking!!!

I purchased this for the first book and am looking forward to the other books that are in this one Book as like I said the first book is only the tip of the iceberg. I like the idea of days of working on a relationship. The exercises and concepts presented are sound and I'm looking forward to see how well they work in practice. Even if a person just uses the recommendations on how to communicate it will help.

A solid beginning

Simple and sometimes very obvious tips and explanations to things most people are fine with. Although it’s a good beginners book which is perfect for someone, who wants to work on their communication skills. However it did leave me feeling like there’s something missing, well I guess that’s just open ending towards self improvement.

I wish every presenter would read this book!!

Great communication is a necessary skill for everyone. While written for sales people and executive presenters, many of the techniques work in less formal situation. If you want to influence others, Listen this book.

Very helpful and a bargain!!

It is amazing how we violently address all things including our own communication with ourselves while expecting nonviolent results to follow. The arrogance we display in expressing our own truth is done in a violent manner without concern for peace and consideration of any other/thing.
