This excellent book is a must for everyone who wants to communicate more effectively with everyone. The book begins by helping the reader understand the four personality types.Through this information the reader can better understand how to shape his/her message for maximum impact. It then explains the complexities of giving a presentation and finishing with lots of ideas and instruction on crafting your message. This is one book I know I will reach for often and recommend it to anyone who wants to present effectively.

Sonya's book does an excellent job of identifying the different communication styles and strategies between Generation X and Y and baby boomers, all of whom are working together in today's diverse organizations. Yet the fundamental message is about the importance of face-to-face interactions and "How to Talk So People Listen" details simply and clearly the essentials of effective communication whether talking one-to-one or presenting to a room full of people. The book underscores the importance of listening and provides an outstanding section on leading successful meetings. "How to Talk So People Listen" is a practical guide for thinking strategically about a range of communication interactions. This book is a tremendous reference for anyone who values the art and skill of effective communications.

Wow-what a guide! How much more effective an employee, coworker, and supervisor I would have been in the past years had I had this manual at my side. The conversational delivery is so comfortable, and it helped me discover the places where I have been ineffectual, especially in communication complex issues. Thanks for putting into writing what so many of us need to know to be more effective in the workplace.

"What I especially enjoyed is that this book has something for everyone. Baby boomers, Generation X'ers and Millennials will learn how best to communicate with their own and different generations. Organized individuals will appreciate the clear structure that includes tools for planning ahead, while those that prefer spontaneous conversation will be better equipped to navigate through uncharted waters. There are great tips for how to improve everything from one on one conversation to large presentations in a friendly or hostile environment. My daughter is taking a course in managerial communication at college and I would love for her professor to see and use this book. We all can become better communicators by reading How To Talk So People Listen.

The book outlined different scenarios that are typical in everyday business where communication is vital. Meeting, presentations and so forth. I have applied some of these recommendations and have found them useful.

Thanks
