Average at best

For sure not my favorite book on communication It gets you through a long list of practical things but most are boring, lacking real value. It seems a collage of topics investigated on the internet and "stiched" together.

I can't listen to this any more

I'm only 3 chapters in and I can't listen to this any more. The author uses terms without defining them, makes generalized statements without examples or suggesting there will be examples, and speaks far to fast for the information to be retained.

provides eyes opening/perspective changing ideas

Helps a person such as I, who has had minimal social interaction see the social world from different lens which will enrich your social interactions...but you must be proactive and do your part...put yourself out there and see/experience the difference.
