If your message is important to you, you should take a little time to work on your attitude and responsiveness if you want to really be ready for success. Ask yourself if you would really want to listen to you when you do not take the time to be an interested communicator. If not, now may be a good time for a change. This book is your start, alsoHow To Talk To People: "Simple Steps To Connect With Anyone Instantly!..really great places to start!

Excellent advice and truly applicable in all manner of human interactions.
Yes,it's all about decorum,courtesy,empathy - with small doses of flattery thrown in - to win over even the most hard-boiled of us! But,more than that,it is about projecting your best self to all:be they intimates,family,guests,colleagues,clients,customers or the Boss!
This book offers great advice and becomes an invaluable guide in one's personal,social and professional life.

I am using this book to coach someone who is a bit shy and needs help with his salesmanship and speaking skills etc. THIS BOOK IS GREAT!! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get that little "edge" in life!! It is helping me too as I read it and I have never had trouble talking to anyone! Even those who think they don't NEED this book can use this book!! :)

I think this book was rushed to get a Kindle version out and they sacrifice the Table of Contents. The table of contents was very difficult to read as it was not fit to appear on a single page. By this I mean you could only read the left side before having to scroll to the right to finish reading. It was also very difficult to navigate using the table of contents. I was not able to click on the various chapters to skip ahead or back.

The author of this put has a lot of common sense tips to help the reader become a better communicator. She does this with insights into why this helps. I say common sense because after you read it it really comes across as "of course you should do that, but boy how many times have I messed that up".

I'm a firm believer that simple is best and this book keeps communication simple and easy to implement for the reader.

I read this book back in college, but had forgotten many of the topics and tricks suggested. I figured reading it again couldn't hurt and I am glad I did. I picked up on new things to do and say now. Leil does a great job providing real life examples that are easy to relate to. Even if you only picked up one or two tips from reading this book, that's enough to put you ahead and make it easier to communicate with others.

I love this book. I devoured it. It really gives some great insight into the human mind and how we communicate. The chapters are short, which I like. For the most part, the lessons learned are pretty straightforward. Once you're read through it once, you can go back and quickly find and remember what the gist of each lesson is. Memorize this book and you will be a bigger success in life.

This has been a very helpful book for me. Some of these ideas I've never heard, and they work wonderfully with most people. I can say these ideas work wonderfully with women, but not very well with men. I think she needs to rethink all of these for communicating with men. Men don't like eye contact, many of these dont' work with men at all. But I've found these have helped me immensely when communicating with women. I wasn't aware that my eye contact with women wasn't that good, until I read this book. I thought the book was very helpful.

I don' really like the author's attitude and I think she really lacks compassion for others who have endured a much harder life than she has. I think the author is insensitive at times. But that said, It's still worth the money and it's a valuable resource. I've applied many of these tricks to my normal daily interactions and they've made a difference. I'd suggest this book to anyone.

not all these tricks work, but enough of them do to make this well worth the money

Unlike most books with very general advice (which in no means is bad) like smile, listen and not just hear etc. this book offers more in-depth and specific tips to be a better conversationalist. Personal anecdotes from the author makes it even more interesting. Every chapter has a one-line summary in the end which is good to get quick reminders about the tricks mentioned in the book.
