The most interesting book on the subject I can recall is "What Everybody Is Saying" By Joe Navarro which is a book about body language written by an ex FBI agent. Even that book is not going to improve your skills over night but there definitely is a lot of useful information in it. Improve your people skills- its an ok read I could take it or leave it. Since I enjoy reading books, what the heck it's not a bad purchase.
Here are some suggestions:
1. There are many sections that need proper references. The material in many places was obviously taken from another source and should be cited.
2. The font is HUGE. The size found in children's books. Reminds me of high school trying to stretch out a paper to enough pages for the teacher.
3. One sentence does not a paragraph make.
4. The book has only one figure and it is illegible. See fuzzy Johari Window on page 161.
5. The example conversations were too short and simplistic. Would like to see more substantial examples instead of "Where's that squirrel again?"
6. Typo on page 90, "...from now own." should be probably "...from now on."
7. Sentences ending with a preposition through out the book. Not good. For example, even on the back cover, "...the situations you'll find yourself in."
8. Would be nice to know something about the author, his background, education, etc. included in the book. Only got that he likes Back to the Future movies I and III and wants a DeLorean car.
9. Missing period after last sentence on back cover.
10. Formatting issue with some hanging headers at bottom of a page and text following on next page.
11. The summary guide at the end of the book is repeated verbatim from all of the chapter takeaways. Would be nice to see this reduced to a simple bullet list and have a conclusion chapter to properly wrap up the entire book.
The author mentions Dale Carnegie. Highly recommend that everyone read "How to Win Friends and Influence People."
I have to remove one star from the rating after reading it a couple more times. The reason is that some content of this book is un-scientific and has no research/data backing it up so it may be somewhat misleading, e.g. the part about stages of listening. Also some context doesn't make sense to me when I read it more carefully (like the part making a converstion completely without talking about yourself -- that sounds like an interview?).
I went through it twice in the audio version, and I just purchased the Kindle version so I have it as a ready reference. Get this book!
