Incredibly powerful.” ― Martina Meyer zu Selhausen

He asks us to take time out, to reflect on what we say and how we say it. In a world where we are constantly bombarded with noise he encourages us stop, listen and dissect the wheat from the chaff. In the vast array of books on self improvement and well-being Julian's latest should be a must-read.” ― Mark Forsbury

The book asks, “What's at stake for you”? The simple answer is everything. Julian’s book methodically walks us through how sound, speaking and listening, influence our lives, both positively and negatively. This is a great read for anyone that is looking to improve their communication skills, whether it be for personal or professional reasons. I am involved in Leadership Training and find many in the business world have communication skills that have atrophied in today's digital environment of e-mails, IMs, and texts. If you are someone who is looking to improve these critical skills, this is the book for you.
I picked up the audio book and was floored . this book is masterfully written and the suggestion Julian makes all work they are not puff pop psychology they are legitimate skills that can turn you into the person in the everyone listens to in the room. These skills take practice especially avoiding the deadly sins of speech but the results are incredible.
I was able to obtain employment in a customer facing role that I was woefully under qualified for, the interviewers all felt that at the end of the day they I was the one they kept coming back too. They said my communication was the most memorable.
This book will improve your life. I also recommend Amy Cuddy's Presence . This book mention her and I followed up from there.
