Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for practicing and beginning to utilize the skills one learned in the original Messages. If you're feeling a bit abandoned and at a loss for how to start integrating the knowledge you gained in the original book into your life, the workbook picks up where it left off. The Messages Workbook puts emotional communication in context. The exercise in chapter eleven about identifying irrational fears was surprisingly effective; the mere act of acknowledging my emotions helped me discern which ones had any real merit.
"If you don't communicate well, you are always at a disadvantage. When you fail to express your ideas clearly and forcefully, other people's ideas prevail. When you can't express your feelings, your feelings get hurt. When you can't ask for what you want, you don't get it." p.1

This book helps anyone to improve his communication skills, it will help u understand people more, I loved mostly these chapters:Hidden Agendas, Blocks to listening, and the Transactional Analysis (the Child/parent/adult thing). I used the skills in this book, they made me understand beyond a conversation, what is really said and why it is said. It will also help u identify what keeps you from delivering your message.

This book was a life saver. If you think or know that you need some help with your communication skills or want to learn about communication this is the book. I began using the information I learned just within the first chapter and starting seeing instant positive results. The information is presented in an easy to understand way and provides practical and useful applications. This book is worth it's weight in gold! I highly recommend this book!

Format: Paperback
I bought the book some time ago, and sincerely, I start to read it last week.I read "making contact" chapter first, because I start a Network Marketing business, and "approach" (making contact) is a must in business. Well, that chapter change my mind in approach people. They (autors), say what you think when approach people,(and it is true), and how to change that think, for a better approach. That chapter alone is worth the price that I paid. I still finish the book but I am very excited to say that if you want to communicat better with anybody that book will done.

This workbook is a nice supplement to the Messages book. It helps to reinforce the lessons in the companion book by Matthew McKay. While not essential to learning, I would recommend it if you are considering Messages: The Communication Skills Book.
