Absolutely worth reading Nov 17, 2009
I'm a relatively new teacher for kids in my church, and I often struggle with "how to talk so they will listen." This book has given me some very good insight on not only teaching, but in everyday conversation with people I find hard to converse with. My Pastor actually picked this book up at a rest stop, and upon reading it reccomended it to a few of us. I looked for it here on this site and found it for .01 cent. Totally worth every penny!! - Mike Buck age 29 / Sunday school teacher and Troubled youth teacher
did not add much to most readers' knowledge May 12, 2000
The book declares in the introduction that it is not a book for scholars or professional communicators. I wish I had seen this before I bought it. What I was really looking for was some help for my public speaking skills. The book really is a compendium of "common sense" that we should use when we communicate with others. We should have learned most of this through our own life experience while interacting with others, but it is all here in one convenient package so that we don't have to go looking everywhere for this information.
Even though the book is entertaining and it never purports to be the type of book that I was searching for, it really did not tell me anything that I already didn't know. It does give advice on how to "give a speech" for example, but the advice is too vague and not specific enough to be of great help (like, "legitimize your fear"; "illucidate you fear"; "embrace your fear"; "the best way to make an impression is by making the impression that you are not trying to make an impression", etc.) While the book is good so far as it goes and the advice is true, I just did not see that it added much to most readers' knowledge about the subject. If you do need a book with lots of awesome practical tips for public speaking then get Tony Jeary's "Inspire Any Audience".
