Simple but it works!

This is a simple but very effective book. I recommend it to people wanting to improve their communications in any field. Sure there are more things and strategies to try but this is a good foundation to start with.

To the point

Poignant. Every word in every sentence is placed with intention. No fluff. No need for a highlighter bc you’ll find yourself highlighting the whole thing.

Fantastic, buy it

This book is brief and direct, but well thought out. The principles are fleshed out just enough so you can listen and immediately start working on improving. It’s takes dale carnegies win friends and influence people, but adds significantly more - in a just over 31 minute book. Fantastic. Buy it.

inter-personal skills guide

What made the experience of listening to Skill with People the most enjoyable?

The short behaviour management guide is both practical and an easy listen. I listened to it twice in a row, while out for an early walk. Very enjoyable.

What did you like best about this story?

Not so much storybook. This is more of a tool box of tips to help you develop interpersonal skills in the workplace and at home.

What does Pat Reilly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Pat Reilly has the voice of a friendly mentor. Great delivery and an enjoyable listen.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I plan to listen to this book on a regular basis just to remind myself of how to get more from life.
