Format: Paperback
A good overview for anyone who has to think laterally about how we communicate and how important it is. There are of course many more ways to communicate than we think, and this book helps us understand not only their importance, but the overall effect of good communication, and of course, bad.

I found this book long winded. It had too many anologies and proverbs and not enough plain english. If you can see through all thoses quotes there is actually somthing to be learnt.

This book is mostly waffle. Far from showing effective communication, John Adair uses endless metaphors, anecdotes and abstract quotes to confuse the reader without making any reference to the confusing techniques he himself is employing.

This book is little use to anyone wishing to develop their communication skills.
