first class

I loved all of the book but in particular I was very fond of all the case studies, showing how to behave and what to say in so many situations. I have been trying out a lot of what I learnt and 99% of it has been very effective

Improvement

Hard to know for sure but I would say a 70% improvement in my social and communication skills since I got this last month. Happy with that, 70% was more than worth the price of the book. :-)

A worthy addition

A worth addition to my audio library. I got this for various reasons but was surprised about how crossover it is - as effective for work related communication as it was with my partner and friends (new and existing).

Challenging

I found this book challenging but not in a a hard to understand or hard to listen to way.
More int he way that it challenged my previous thoughts on communication and really opened up a new area for me to discover.

Communicating better

The start of the book (first 20 minutes or so) was a bit dull I thought but I stuck at it and after that it became very interesting and useful

One of the best books in a long time

I would sincerely say this is one the best books I have read or heard in a very long time.

Packed full of fascination information about better communication skills but most importantly the advice was practical - meaning it was easy to implement it, right from the start.

Seeing great results both in my personal and work life.

Highly recommended!
