Available from these sellers.



Book Description

17 Oct 2002
Sometimes people are so busy communicating they don't listen to each other. TALK LANGUAGE tells you how to understand what people are really saying, and why. Words represent only a small part of the information transmitted in conversation; just as important are circumstances and body language. TALK LANGUAGE shows how to decode a wide range of everyday signals, so you can get the message or intentions a speaker is really conveying - whether intentionally or not. It gives many examples of every day conversational phrases and what they really mean. TALK LANGUAGE will help you to express yourself clearly and concisely - and to interpret others' intentions if they do not reveal them. Its message can be applied to almost every facet of daily life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Specific Application of NLP 26 May 2007
By O. Luke
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book appears to be a specific application of NLP; therefore if you have read or are experienced with the use of NLP then there is little new in this book. That said if you have not read or are experienced in the use of NLP and you want to understand better what people really mean or how people may interpret what you are saying then this book is for you. The explanations are simple and any technical terms are clear explained.

On the sleeve and in the description of this book there is a long list of promised 'How to's' giving the impression that the book will expressly detail how to achieve the desired outcome. What you will actually get is the skills to achieve that outcome leaving you to apply them as required. The examples in the book that do match the `how to` list are very specify and it will take time and practise to apply the skills in every situation.

The body language section is a distillation of Allen Pease `Body Language' book. If you want to learn about body language and the connections between talking and body language then I would recommend purchasing Allen's "Body Language" book as well

What a good book!

It's short enough to read cover to cover and I found that unlike most books of it's type I didn't get bored doing so.

The advice for how to deal with situations is presented in a very accessible way. The explanations are straightforward and accompanied by relevant examples. The book guides the reader through various 'difficult' scenarios (e.g. starting up conversations, keeping them going, dealing with criticism, avoiding being manipulated etc.) in a way which seems designed to gradually build confidence.

If you want to improve your self confidence and/or your relationships at home or at work I think that you will find ideas in this book to help.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously sexist, but ... 1 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Despite the fact that this is the most LAUGHABLY sexist book I've ever had the irritation to encounter (so I'm knocking off one star), it does contain some outstanding advice about how to deal with difficult people and how to read their intentions. I was most interested in the chapter on ways to defuse criticism. I expect to use this book as a reference.
