From the Publisher
While it may seem like some folks are just born with a commanding presence that draws people in, the fact is anyone can learn to communicate in ways that consistently build powerful connections. Everyone Communicates, Few Connect helps you succeed by revealing Maxwell’s Five Principles and Five Practices to develop this crucial skill of connecting, including: finding common ground, keeping your communication simple, capturing people's interest, inspiring people, and staying authentic in all your relationships.
Communication Goes Beyond Words
Recognize successful communication goes beyond words to connect on four levels: visual, intellectual, emotional, and verbal.
Find Common Ground
Connect with others by finding common ground and guarding against these top four barriers: assumption, arrogance, indifference, and control.
Keep it simple. Say it slowly. Have a smile.
Use the “3 S” strategy to do the difficult work of simplifying communication: Keep it simple. Say it slowly. Have a smile.
The Inspiration Equation
Motivate others to take action by following a formula known as the Inspiration Equation.

If you only read ONE of his books it is as good as another. I have purchased several and this is my last unless he writes a mystery novel.
I suspect it will be good. He is an excellent writer but has worn this material down to the bottom.
How many times can you say the same thing with a slight twist?
I guess the answer is, “As long as someone will spend more money on it.”
I can’t fault anyone for being able to make a buck I wish I had done it first.
The book is well written. On topic (again) and worthy of being the only book from this author on your library shelf. Then go read what others have to contribute to your life.
I can’t give it a single star and I can’t give it a five star either. So I settled on. three stars as a compromise of sorts. Wish I could do better but can’t.
I have come across some who say the information is not "deep." However, I want to challenge everyone to consider what they want most; to be "deep" or to be effective. We cannot escape interacting with people. This book provides the tools and common sense approaches for doing that.
I would recommend this book to everyone but especially to those who are new to the sales business. It is a "must have."
Most of the book sofar is the most egoistic crap ive ever read. He is supposed to be talking about us, the audience, and the problems we have. But instead of offering advice he quotes irrellevant statistic and then rambles senily.
People who buy a book dont need to be sold on improving a skill. They need practical advice.
Practical advice is the opposite of incoherent and incoate rambling.
There is nothing wrong with a short but useful book. But you need to have value proportionate to the amount of other's time you waste. More basicly you need to provide some value
Every sentence with the word I should be cut

It does give a lot of practical hints and tips, but more importantly it makes you think about motives, thoughts, attitudes and where you need to adjust to improve things for yourself and other people. I wish every company and school had copies!
it looks at three main areas ,on a one to one basis,in a group ,and to an audiance.as with all of john maxwells books,easy to understand and read,but the principles of it need to be applied and put into practice
the benefits are huge for those in buisness in family relations or for anyone who needs speak and communicte to maybe a wider audiance.
The content is simple but very effective and covers basically all the subject and the tips you need to know if you want to better communicate on a one on one level or in a group or in front of an audience. It will help you become a better connector with people and you will benefit of it not only on a communication basis but also on a relationship basis.
