Great book for leader development

This book helped develop strategies for crafting leadership traits through communication. Oh, and always shine you shoes and sparingly use hand gestures!

This book was very repetitive and I feel like it would have been a lot better without the author constantly utilizing name dropping to keep the reader invested. This book could easily have been cut in half by taking out the repetitiveness and name dropping.
Short and sweet. Mr. Gallo's concise, clear and actionable tips are useful any time we want to express ourselves.

Good book. It wasn't dry or boring and had lots of good, real life examples. The book recommends watching videos on the author's web site. I was disappointed that I couldn't find them.
