    "provides eyes opening/perspective changing ideas"

    Helps a person such as I, who has had minimal social interaction see the social world from different lens which will enrich your social interactions...but you must be proactive and do your part...put yourself out there and see/experience the difference.

    "Very helpful!"

    So far the best book I've read on improving communication skills in both work and personal life. Can definitely think of a lot of people in my life who would benefit from reading/listening to this book.

    Story
    "Badly narrated."
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one. The narrators voice is uninspiring, his intonation is all over the place, and there are extended pauses in the audio which should have been edited out. This is inexcusable for a book concerned with improving communication skills as it makes for very uncomfortable listening. If anything, this an example of how NOT to communicate.


    What could Ian Tuhovsky have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Chosen a better narrator. I also found the style of writing to be clumsy and at times plain weird - possibly because the book has been translated.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He ruined it.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None.


    Any additional comments?

    Having listened to many audio books this is very amateurish and to be avoided. I am surprised Audible sell it. The high scoring reviews for this audio book raise questions as to their authenticity.

    "Narrator is terrible, book is above average"

    I liked some of the content in the book but it's nothing spectacular after reading it twice and listening once.
    I bought both the Kindle ebook and the audiobook for Whispersync. However, the narrator has the same lazy tone throughout as if he just got out of bed with a cold and is reading it for the first time. He seems to make up the words as he goes along in places and keeps adding in silly filler words and says things backwards that is quite annoying.
    The book does have a couple of good sections such as Chapter 18 Eye Accessing Cues. Would never listen to this narrator again though - sounded so terrible.

    "No ground breaking new info in this book"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book is of to a good start, but it gets a little borring when the writer goes of into how wonderfull NLP is and goes on with NLP principles for a couple of chapters. I would have loved if the first hour was the benchmark because the rest felt like the writer was just telling you about different approaches from different areas.


    Would you recommend Communication Skills Training to your friends? Why or why not?

    If you new in the field this migth be good. If so buy the paper book, because there is ALOT of pulletpoint reading and it doesn't work in a audiobook


    What three words best describe Wendell Wadsworth’s performance?

    Good voice and good speed.


    Was Communication Skills Training worth the listening time?

    Some parts

    "excellent introduction to training strategy,


    "

    I bought this audioble half year ago when I first took a position in L&D. It was a great resource for me as I was starting out and having something to listen to whilst undlwinding for bed after my day at work.
    However I have found the knowledge gained very valuable and it has made me realise the type of trainer I am and how I would like to be perceived.

    Often I 'relisten to this book when starting a new training group and will always pick up new skills that I may have overlooked previously. Whilst covering the basic it also goes more in depth and it's helpful that the voice is relaxing and easy to listen to.

    I have to thank the author as without this book I don't believe I would have progressed in the few short months in the way I have.

    This book is a concentrate of many self-development books I have read. It contained some of the most helpful ideas and tips I have come across. The pace of the reader makes it easier to follow the content read.
