Publisher's Summary

Learn how to improve all your relationships with the right communication skills.

Would you like to feel:

  • Confident?
  • Unstifled?
  • Attractive?
  • Popular?
  • Magnetic?

Communication is a very important aspect of life. We use it for a large portion of our daily activities and without it nobody gets very far in life. It's like the moment you visit a foreign country. When you don't know the language and everything seems alien and unknown, you begin to appreciate your native language. Communication requires our daily practice & development as it falls into our careers, our relationships, our financial lives, and our very happiness.

Communication is also important when it comes to working in companies, excelling in school, and when it comes to speaking - whether socially, or during meetings, or public speaking engagements, and the like. When you have enough confidence in yourself, it will be easier for you to relate to people from all walks of life.

Don’t let your social awkwardness stand in your way. This audiobook can help you internalize positive self-talk and release your inhibitions. Soon, you’ll be comfortable speaking out around others, communicating effectively, and building a strong and loyal group of friends!

Excellent book about communication skills

This classic text has gone through many editions and revisions because the content is that practical and timeless. Buy it. listen it together. Apply it together. You won't regret it, Your marriage will improve because your communication and conflict resolution will improve! People began to seem more open to hearing me, and normal every day conflicts can be addressed without people getting escalated. Probably the most important book on communication and relationships I've ever read. If I would have found this sooner it could have saved my relationship.

A better understanding of my business.

I took this to work and shared it around. It is effective, and also leads to much laughter. Even some of the 'difficult people' chuckle and get it. Not sure if it would work everywhere, but it's been a help for us. This book covers the best practices on how to approach strangers and have a conversation in which they would be comfortable being around you. It could be for friendship, courtship, fun or work. I've learn more on this book about human response than any other psych book that I've listen.

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. A good listen , and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their relationship A must read to help with your communication skills. It works! I tried it! The language is warm, alive, and unique. Well done! Excellent tools to add to any relationship especially a marital relationship. Offers real examples of overcoming challenges and offer honesty in indicating that certain challenges are ongoing.

Thorough and Sincere

There are very few books that deals with impromptu speaking in such a clear manner. More examples would definitely help but still we can revisit the book more often to gain experience with the strategies. The best ones are to use slant technique and to use the transition strategies to get back to what you want to talk irrespective of the topic posed to you. I am fairly articulate both in speaking and writing, however public speaking scares the Hell out of me. I forget what I am saying and my place in the speech. This is why I bought this book. I want to dazzle the next time I stand up to address a crowd. An important aspect of the process is to put yourself in the right state of mind.

I really enjoyed this book ....

`Very insightful book by the communications power duo. I read it with a number of my university friends and we enjoyed it and picked up plenty of key pointers. The main theme is to not forget to be likeable, be human! I really enjoyed this book. So much practical information that I could put into action right away. I am sharing it with the rest of my organization because I know they will benefit from it too. If you leverage this book you will be a better speaker.

Actionable, effective guidance

This book is excellent and I fully recommend it to any manager who's interested in improving themselves and their people. It covers fundamental concepts that every manager needs to be good at--building relationships with staff, providing feedback, coaching, and delegation. I've listened to the Manager Tools and Career Tools podcasts for years, and thought I had a solid handle on the basics of good management. While there wasn't anything surprising in this book, I found it invaluable to have another way to absorb the key takeaways from the podcast

A book for pretty much everyone !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I work in a firm with so many crazies it makes me crazy! I loved this book because I was able to identify each personality and know how to deal with it. I've used the authors responses so many times and they work! He suggests we look at our own 'crazies' i.e. why do they make me crazy. I LISTEN straight through in one session. The stepwise approach made this seem doable and I liked the when - to and how-to approach to these issues and the possible outcomes.

Effective is better than efficient !!!!!!!!!

This book is excellent and I fully recommend it to any manager who's interested in improving themselves and their people. It covers fundamental concepts that every manager needs to be good at--building relationships with staff, providing feedback, coaching, and delegation. Are you a 'results first' manager? Maybe a 'results first' person who's headed for a management role? Then this book + the ten years of effective, actionable, podcasts that go along with "the Effective Manager" are for you. This is one of the few books I have read that talk about management behaviours and how critical the *right* ones are to business success

Best ways to show appreciation !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The art of clear thinking takes a much different angle than you might expect for a book on thinking! lots of practical advice, but a lot of it is about gaining self-awareness about how we are NOT thinking clearly. finer points on intellectual honesty were pretty fresh to me and interesting to read about. my favourite chapter was chapter 4 and the stories about Descartes and Darwin. I feel that this book has helped my mental clarity and made me a more sane person

Great book for communication!!!!!

I listen a lot and am always striving to learn new things. I wasn't expecting much, mostly a rehash of dated material. But what I found was current, fresh and highly relevant I learn a lot frm the techniques given in this book. They are easy to follow and can be applied almost immediately. The summary behind each chapter provides a quick reference guide to the detail involved. I love this so much I recommended this book everyone.
