Excited to be interviewed about the book by Russ Haworth for episode 34 of the Family Business Podcast. Find it at http://fambizpodcast.libsyn.com.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Very informative and relatable, it was easy for the reader to make the most and put into practice what was being relayed.
As a upcoming graduate most of what was being said was easy to relate to and I can already see a benefit in my social circles due to reading this book.
I have already recommended this book to many of my friends (students) as I feel there are some interesting points that can be taken away from it.
This is a book that everyone should have on their bookshelf and can delve into whenever they feel they need a prompt. 100% a book I would pick up again and again and recommend to others.
Nice book to get your head around different communication obstacles. I like that author provides a lot of life examples based on own experience. This makes the book very personal. Many cultural moments are covered as well. Nice a relaxed reading.
This is a book I imagine dipping in and out of, in order to fully appreciate all that is suggested and mentioned. I did struggle with the continual references to Alia, although I understand why this was done; and at times found the writing disjointed; and yet, I've also discovered so many things about conversation that I hadn't appreciated before and feel that this will help me in many ways.
