Publisher's Summary

What do I need to do to make you understand me?

If you have struggled to be understood, to connect, and to express everything that is bottled up inside you just waiting to come out, you are not alone. Not in the least.

Effective communication is, beyond the shadow of a doubt, one of the most important skills we could possess. Yet, it is among the many skills that so many of us seem to struggle with. Why is that?

We communicate every single day. We do it with our family. Our friends. Our neighbors. The barista who serves us coffee every morning. The people that we work with. Maybe even a friendly nod or hello to the stranger you pass on your way walking down the street who happens to offer you a smile. In theory, this should be easy. Why do we struggle?

If you want to thrive, you need to have great communication skills. There is no way around it.

Those inspirational leaders and successful role models you look up to? They got to where they are today for a reason, and that reason is they were able to articulate themselves so well that others were inspired work with them and help them get to where they are today. Success cannot be achieved alone. You need the support of others to propel you to the top. But they can’t do that if they have a hard time even relating to you on a basic level.

Effective Communication is the essential guide for everyone who aspires to take their conversation skills to new heights. If you want to improve your social skills, this is it. Want to improve your empathy levels? This is it. Want to learn the art of persuasion to achieve successful relationships in every area of your life? This is it.

Never again will you have to struggle to keep a conversation going. You will no longer have to feel socially awkward or ill at ease, wondering how to strike up a conversation. This is time to start building genuine relationships. Meaningful relationships. The kind of relationships that will last a lifetime.

Excellent communication system

I prefer audio book narrated by authors, but this author speaks with lots of expression. To my ears, it bordered on the annoying - not every fact is equally impressive! The pauses between words weren't helping either - and I became fatigued after awhile. However,
