There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I actually asked her why this was, via her website, and she IGNORED my question (3 weeks with no response; safe to say that she ignored the question).
However, I was able to address it in my speaking by doing it publicly several times till I got it right and that makes a big difference as well.
This book is full of concrete case studies on communication. I learned how to get the ball rolling on start, how to proceed with a bridge and get meaningful conversation going.
This has changed my lifestyle too. I find I become outgoing. I am willing to talk to anyone whom I think he/she is willing to have a quick smalltalk at anywhere, and yes, of course, just like any smalltalk, with a reasonable expectation of the depth of topics.
Not everything in this book was for me, I don't stutter, I already have good posture and I'm not shy, but what I thought didn't apply to me made me aware that it is an issue for other people and helped me develop a sense of compassion and understanding that makes me more aware in my interactions.
In my quest for the latest in advanced leadership strategy and communication Dr. Flemings book shifted my focus to the fundamentals. With all the research and technology available it's easy to get away from attention to detail in basic human interaction. I have always believed that strong fundamentals are the basis for mastery in any skill. I highly recommend this book.

Until I read this book I had never been able to say specific, and yet since reading this is seems so easy. I'm not sure how that happened! But I am so pleased.
This book is full of good advice and answers most of the problems people will have with their voice
