She has started with a perspective many communications types lack. That is, she is NOT about manipulating the audience. She has identified the few really crucial points, and connected them in a way that is easy to remember. And she's written it in a style that seems designed to help the stuff stick. It's not the most academically impressive or elegantly written book on this subject. But it's the one I would give to someone who wanted to improve a lot, right now, no matter what level they were starting from.
Levine gives her readers all the right tools to become more confident, articulate and effective communicators, inside and outside the conference room. Not to mention, this book reads more like a conversation with your favorite teacher, and less like a manual.
