Editorial Reviews

Review

“Lisa Marshall, reading her idea-packed guide with charm and clarity, goes well beyond the topic of giving speeches in this breezy, fast moving audiobook…she engages her listeners with her laid-back earnestness and frequent invitations to practice these techniques, quiz themselves, and put her suggestions into practice…her writing and speaking have the humanity needed to make listeners want to devour this material and take their communication skills to the next level.” ―Audiofile Magazine

“The author narrates with a strong voice and conversational style and uses appropriate pauses to stand in for pacing in the written text. Occasional humor and engaging scenarios are delivered in a personal manner. This title would be a good addition to self-help collections in college and public libraries.” ―Library Journal

Lisa B. Marshall had me at the table of contents. I couldn't resist a book with chapters titled "From Archie Bunker to Mary Poppins: How to Speak with Tact and Grace" or "Taking the 'Hell' Out of Hello." Smart Talk is a smart read. First time for me that a resource, self improvement, or guide book was a fun read. I learned communication skills whilst being entertained. In Smart Talk, the author uses personal stories, quizzes, challenges and case studies to help you be a "smart talker." I found the information practical, valuable and original. The author delivers strategies and skills that make a lot of sense. I am certain I will immediately see a positive impact in my working relationships. I highly recommend Smart Talk for young adults. This book is going to be included in all my graduation gifts. Social media is great but with the loss of personal interaction, communication skills essential to success become foreign making Smart Talk an important tool. This is a book I will refer to often.

This is a very practical book. Lisa's writing is clear and precise. She follows up each of her points with real life examples. I find self help books easy to read but difficult to apply to real life situations. Lisa takes care of that for me. This book has applications to everyone, from the young person just starting out to the seasoned "communicator". I have been an attorney for 20 years and thought I knew all there is to know about communicating with other people. I learned some wonderful techniques that I will add to my skill set both professionally and personally.

The key to professional success is having the ability to present thoughts and ideas to large and small audiences in a compelling, concise and memorable manner. Much has been written over the years about public speaking and communications. Lisa Marshall's "Smart Talk," is without a doubt, the best book on the subject I've seen in my thirty years of corporate experience. It is jam packed with practical advice, tools, tips and humorous anecdotes. This book will serve both the novice as well as the experienced presenter -- there's something for everybody!

As a college senior about to enter the work world, Smart Talk is a godsend. But really, Lisa B. Marshall's book on how to communicate better in any situation can benefit anyone who is open to it. This is the kind of book that you can read all the way through and then refer back to different sections when desired. There are amusing chapter names like "Tongue Fu" and "Magically Delicious!" Lisa uses many effective strategies to connect with the reader. I appreciate her willingness to share personal anecdotes. Something else that makes Smart Talk special is that there is more material on the book's website. Videos exemplifying communication concepts are a nice supplement to the written content. It is impossible not to take something valuable away from Smart Talk, whether you want to completely overhaul your communication style or just need an encouraging nudge in the right direction.

This is an extremely useful and sensible guide to managing social interactions. It offers many helpful strategies for dealing with a range of social situations as well as providing an intelligent analysis of the nature of those situations. Shy people are offered structure and strategies and there's something there for confident people too.

As soon as I started reading this book I found it easy to incorporate many of the ideas into use. I have become more relaxed at work, especially when the big boss comes around to say hello. I used to be scared of saying the wrong thing, but Smart Talk is just that... knowing what to say, and how to say it. Get your copy and start reading NOW!

I've listened to Lisa's podcast and her advice really helped me prepare for a big presentation I had a few years ago. While recently on her site I read a post about dealing with difficult people. I purchased this book specifically to read that chapter, "Tongue Fu: How to Deal with Difficult People", and was not disappointed. I'm currently not working in an office environment, but have difficulty with family members. Her insight, advice, and suggestions were really helpful and I feel much more confident in these situations. Now I look forward to reading the rest of the book. Highly recommend anything Lisa B. Marshall does.
