Court et efficace- Bonne introduction à la communication

L’auteur couvre tous les sujets touchant la communication, de façon plus générale. Excellent comme une introduction aux bases de la communication. Pour en savoir davantage sur une problématique, il faudra cependant lire d’autres ouvrages. La matière est bien présentée et simple à comprendre. Les exemples sont parlants.

A worthwhile read!

Enjoyed listening to this book. The narrator was lively and engaging. The style of delivery allowed me to reflect on past scenarios and craft ways to improve my communication. I'll definitely be looking into their other books.

Not much of a science rather a list

The book was interesting in parts however I would call it a list for effective communication. I did get some valuable information from the book. No real hard evidence / neuroscience / science behind the books content. Most of it pretty much basic common sense.

Great book with concrete suggestions

Great book with concrete suggestions (an audio review)

I have a degree in English and a speech communications minor, so I wasn’t sure I had much to learn in the bastion of communications. I thought it was all pretty straightforward.

I’m happy to say, I learned a lot while listening to this audiobook. I took tons of notes, and so will pick and choose the sections I think were most valuable. Overall, though, this is well worth your time to listen to. Everyone can come out with something from this book.

The section on how to deal with people who are hard of hearing and deaf was wonderful. As an aware person, I always want to be inclusive. Now I have practical tips on how to converse with people with hearing issues. I especially liked the idea of a talking stick in a large group of people. It is a way of showing the person who is hard of hearing who is speaking, but it is also a visual reminder to others that speaking over each other is unhelpful. In fact, I think there are many times when a talking stick would be helpful in other interactions.

Preparing for a job interview may seem straightforward, but this book offers concrete advice on how to answer the five most common questions. If I had known some of these things, I am sure I would have been more successful in previous interviews.

The author makes suggestion on how to speak clearly, discussing intonation, enunciation, and breathing through your diaphragm. All of these are things I learned in my vocal class and are very helpful. He also discusses a ‘digital detox’, acknowledging that people say things online that they would never say to a person’s face. Being aware of our ability to hurt people with words is a good reminder that not all communication is clearly understood. He also makes suggestions on how to deal with rejection. He encourages the person who has been hurt to fight the urge to strike back.

The concept of empathy is addressed and I have experienced the power of being known as someone who is empathetic through my interactions with others. People feel comfortable opening up to me and it has made me better able to put myself into other peoples’ shoes. This book offers suggestions on how to approach someone who is hurting, to let them know you’re open to listening without pressure or judgement. Also, the author reminds us to fight the urge to solve their problems, instead let them know they are believed and valued for their honesty. In the days of the #MeToo movement, these skills are more valuable than ever. That being said, when someone is opening up and sharing painful issues, it is not the time for you to share your story. Find someone else if you are triggered, otherwise, the person trusting you may think you’re insensitive.

In discussing gossip, the author says to ask yourself questions such as “why am I feeling the need to pass this on, what are my motives, and do I even know if this information is true?” These are all questions I will consider the next time I’m going to pass along information.

Apologies, long-distance relationships, conflict, and how to give compliments are all addressed in detail. I could go on and on about all the great advice, but I truly urge you to listen for yourself. There is something in this book for everyone. I know I am going to hold onto my notes and review them at different times when I am having communication difficulties or when I am heading into a challenging situation. I’m so glad I listened to this book.

My only issue is that the author threw in that people who are good communicators are getting the “most attractive partners” and that this book will help you get “better romantic relationships”. That almost caused me to stop listening. As you can tell by the review, I’m glad I didn’t. Is the advice in this book helpful? Of course. Is this the best place to find advice on romantic relationships? Not really. Becoming more confident and improving your communication skills are important and should be the goals unto themselves. If you are a better communicator, you could possibly open yourself up to meeting many different people and that is another laudable goal. The “more attractive partners” line cheapens the power of the self-improvement suggestions.

I have to discuss Randy Streu. He was perfect for this book and he owned it. I had to keep reminding myself that he wasn’t the author because he was so beautifully authentic.

This is a great book with practical and useful suggestions that everyone can learn from.

I sucked at small talk before this!

I always felt like a good communicator, although recently I felt like I faltered at small-talk and feared difficult meetings. This really helped to raise my level of confidence with practical advice and once again feel like I can talk to anyone. Thank you Ian. Great job with this one!

Wish I’d read it when I was younger

I struggled with small talk and being an introvert when I was younger and only recently started to feel comfortable. This book gives very practical advice in a variety of situations. Love the FORD model. I’m going to recommend it for my kids and nieces and nephews - all in their 20s.

A little basic...

This book is a bit more basic than I would have liked. It would be great for a young person or someone early in their career. But there are very few advanced communication techniques or ideas. Due to the subtitle, I was hoping for specific examples and techniques for improving my small talk, since it is sometimes do not care for. If this is what you are seeking then this is not the right book.

Alot of eye opening information

This book has somthing for everybody and is definitly worth cheacking out. It will become increasingly important as electronic comunication diminishes our face to face comunication skills.

Nothing new here

Very basic simple common sense stuff. Nothing really new here. It could be helpful for someone with social anxiety or severe communication deficits.

Not That Helpful

A lot of the content is common sense and just tips. Some tips were helpful but the majority of the read was just filler.

Informative

I found this book useful for defining and identifying conversational skills, however some of the later chapters I felt did not really apply to me and were a little boring.
