To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I found this book to be a very clear statement of ways to improve communication results. The checklists in the last section makes the content easy to apply. While I had learned quite a few of these points in my speaking experience, Joel has made it easier to integrate so it is more than just individual items to remember.
Probably sure a thousand other people have commented the same; but this book, as suggested by the title, gets its point across by highlighting the must haves and ignoring the rest (and rightfully so) Would recommend reading it. Benefit to effort ratio is quite high on this piece.
This book succinctly identifies the fundamentals of clear, concise communication; be it public speaking, email or 1:1 coaching. I did not find the material to be eye-opening as much as a resource for reminders on the fundamentals of effective communication.
One of the best (clear, concise, actionable) business books I own. It is useful for both business and personal communication. I love books that exemplify what they teach and this book does that to an impressive degree.
My only complaint is that the Kindle Edition has at least one serious error not found in the print version. That surprised me as I assumed the Kindle edition would be more up to date, not less.
I finished it in one sitting. The advices are quite practical and i can see myself tying to apply it in the near future. Not like THE BEST book out there but I can’t find anything to complain about hence the 5 stars
