From the Back Cover

In our world, there are so many voices vying for attention--online, on TV, on electronic devices of every kind--it's harder than ever to be heard. But nothing cuts through the static like the spoken word.

Do you long to be able to persuade others?

Do you want to be able to command a room?

Do you want to say the right thing at the right time?

Words are powerful when they are used correctly. If you want to motivate your kids or employees, convince your boss to give you a raise, speak with confidence to large groups of people, or give a report that won't leave them snoozing, How to Talk So People Will Listen is the resource you need. With humorous stories and inventive, practical tips, communicator Steve Brown shows you how to speak with authority, win an argument, overcome your fears of public speaking, and more.

This revised and updated edition includes three new chapters to help you navigate the ever-changing communication landscape, with specific advice on reaching younger generations, savvy use of social media, and more.

Listening to Steve is always a pleasure even as it is encouraging and instructive. This book is like opening the hood and finding out why the engine runs so well. I aspire to apply the things I have learned here.

I'm a relatively new teacher for kids in my church, and I often struggle with "how to talk so they will listen." This book has given me some very good insight on not only teaching, but in everyday conversation with people I find hard to converse with. My Pastor actually picked this book up at a rest stop, and upon reading it reccomended it to a few of us. I looked for it here on Amazon and found it for .01 cent. Totally worth every penny!! - Mike Buck age 29 / Sunday school teacher and Troubled youth teacher

If Steve Brown writes it, I'm going to read it. He will startle you with some of his wit and humor, but always drives home Truth. He just might state it differently than you are accustomed....but that's the great part. He makes you think and then reflect.
