A book worth having, particularly anyone fresh to the workforce or lacking a little social savoir-faire.
Since I am at the moment applying for jobs I found the chapter on networking and interview skills particularly helpful.
As you would expect from a book on communication skills it is written in a clear and concise way. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who, like me, sometimes finds it difficult to get their point across.
It's a quick insightful read. Well worth the money for the insight it provides.
I found the chapter on 'positive things one can do with written communication skills' very useful too - at last, guidance on email etiquette!

Hmmm, not quite a textbook, not quite a manual, more like a literature review?Published 9 months ago by Amazon Customer
