This book was really interesting and helpful. I ate it up, slowly for greater retention. It's based on the premise that everyone has a type, out of the 16 Myers Briggs personality types, and that people can have difficulty relating to and communicating with people of other types. their solution is to teach you to recognize the cues for various types, so that you can identify the type of whomever you interact with, and then interact with them based on their type and yours. They call that part SpeedReaching, and the recognition part SpeedReading. I find myself trying to figure out everyone I encounter now, and it really does help to understand why they do so many of the things they do. It's especially helpful in the workplace, learning how to communicate with boss and coworkers more effectively, in a way that each of them will understand better. I recommend this book to EVERYONE! :) as long as you can handle a little personality theory, you will get great use out of this book.
