What makes this book powerful is its distinct perspective, based on the nature of human behavior and intuition, rather than a logical approach to speaking.

Anyone who has to present, give speeches, lead meetings, or communicate in public in any way will benefit from reading this book.

He explains how this happens and how to use this knowledge to improve our communication.

initially the book started quite slow with a bit of theory however give this one some time. it goes into great depth on practical examples on the difference and importance of the 2 "conversations" verbal and non-verbal..

it makes a lot of practical sense and lays it out step by step.. a quick read as well. one that should be mandatory reading in schools!

Not as helpful as The Charisma Myth, but still somewhat practical and based on some decent ideas.

The main takeaway: Leadership is based on persuasive communication, which is based on both verbal and nonverbal messages; if the two messages are in conflict, people will believe the nonverbal messages; the way to master nonverbal messages is through mastering intent; in other words, Method Acting.
