Why do we so often fail to connect when speaking with business colleagues, family members, or friends? Wouldn't you like to make yourself heard and understood in all of your relationships? Using vivid examples, easy-to-learn techniques, and practical exercises for becoming a better listener and making yourself heard and understood, Dale Carnegie will show you how it's done, even in difficult situations.

Mostly stories and quizzes

I love how to Win Friends and Influence People. So when I saw this book come out I hoped it would be similar to that book.

This one's more of a Workshop book that would be used as a guide for some sort of company training program. The vast majority of this book is just example stories and quizzes for you to take and score yourself.

There are few points made in the book that are pretty good, but nothing revolutionary. However, if you're looking for a template for some sort of business training on improving basic communication skills, this would be a good book.

Make Yourself Heard!

With easy to learn methods for becoming a better listener and communicator, I found this to be a very useful book. As usual, Dale Carnegie books are well written, informative and a must for getting ahead in life.
