Publisher's Summary

The world's most respected leadership expert gives five principles and five practices for breaking the invisible barrier to leadership and personal success.

You have a good idea but can't convince your peers of its merit. You crafted a groundbreaking strategy, but the team trudges on in the same old way. Certain people move forward in their career, while you seem to be stuck. If this describes you or someone you know, the problem is not the quality of what you have to offer. The problem is how you connect with people to create the results you desire.

In Everyone Communicates, Few Connect, John Maxwell takes readers through the Five Connecting Principles and the Five Connecting Practices of top-notch achievers. He believes that a person's ability to create change and results in any organization - be it a company, church, nonprofit, or even a family - is directly tied to the ability to use the teachings of this book.

Not complete

I got the book and the audio version to "read along" which was impossible to do since the audio version seems to be an abridged version. I don't know who made the call to not have the full version of the book here but a heads up would've been nice.

The reader does a good job but unfortunately due to this being a reduced version it didn't serve the purpose I needed or expected.

Incomplete Book

This is an abridged version of the book. This was not clear to me when I purchased it. Not a good value.

This is abriged and missing key elements.

What would have made Everyone Communicates, Few Connect better?

It could be complete. I downloaded this because I am an auditory learner and I was taking a class that required this book. I was missing important information. Shame on you Mr. Maxwell.

Good book

This book met my expectations. John Maxwell has really good communication points. The book helped me to understand that connecting is not about me.

I always loved the quote which he used in this book that "people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." Another interesting statement was that connecting and becoming a good communicator is skill and not a natural ability. He used Moses as an example.

This is a book that I will listen to again.

It was pretty decent. Slow at points.

Slow at points but the end and beginning were great. The end was especially good! What a way to end a book!

Perhaps the only Communication book you will need

Excellent, useful, and very practical content. There are plenty of communication books available, but this one effectively sums up much of everything one needs to know about communicating with impact. John Maxwell has made it easy to take the best practices he offers and translate them into everyday communication / connecting tools.

a good place to start on being a better communicator and connector
