    I'm so glad I read this great book. The title speaks for itself but after reading it and applying the principles, you can better communicate and connect and at the same time add value to people. I highly recommend it to everyone in leadership and aspiring to be a leader. -
  • A lot of fluff

    This was a 25 page book - with another 200 pages of other people's quotes and long pointless stories.
