I read the reviews so decided to try out the book. Lots of big typeface and few words on the page, I have seen too many of these books before. This is effectively 10 powerpoint slides s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d into a book. The ideas are fine, but nothing that I have not seen before, in more detail, elsewhere.

I took a look at the author's website, and, surprise, surprise, some of the reviewers here on Amazon are the same people as give him 'testimonials' on his website for his courses. Not sure of the integrity of all involved.

Overall, it's an okay book, but not worthy of the lavish praise heaped on it by some of these 'reviewers'

If you are looking for a simple guide to communication at network meetings this could be it. For thoes that have been doing it for a few years its a repeat of a hundred others. In short, buy it if you need a hand hold for a meeting, but don't expect much hard facts or research.

Bought this book on the basis of the reviews and frankly having read it I'm a bit baffled. We all need to do the simple stuff well - this is the basis of success. But this book is so simplistic it will tell most people nothing more than most already know. And manages to stretch the book to way longer than it need be(admittedly with lots of spacing between paragraphs). This may be fine if the delivery, the writing, was engaging enough to give tried and trusted advice some fresh writing. But ut doesn't. It's written in terms of the 1st person with the authr telling us in langauge beloved of the American self-help books of old - very simple language with lots of stories of what the author has done. The book cover says '..the most original and insightful book on communication'. Erm,,,,sorry, but no it isn't.

It's ironic that this book is actually jelly itself. OK, probably 5 good points in here, but thrown at you again and again and again and again. I agree with other reviewers that maybe 20 pages would have been enough for these points. Then there is also the self praise of the author on almost every other page on how fantastic he, his clients, friends and his self invented approaches are (i.e. AFTER). It really, really makes you sick after a while. However, some tips are thought provoking, so not just one star.
