A Case for Communication

I have an interest in neuroscience; it fascinated me while I was in nursing school even though I didn't ultimately become a neuro nurse. So I was intrigued by this title when it showed up at one of my favorite book review sites. It is very easy to read compared to other books on the thought and communication. It felt almost too simplistic at times. But at least it is more accessible than many books I've read on the topic. In this book, the author explores concepts like pe

Unusual aspects of psychology. This book was a great surprise to me that it delivered such a high standard, level-headed, professional analysis of human behaviour and the traps we set against harmoniously communicating our points of view in order to be better understood or make the effort to better understand others. I don’t know if the author is an insightful businessman, a scholar of behavioural psychology or just someone with a great deal of lateral thinking and common sense. The book is not ...more

If I were a manager intoday's corporate world, I would make reading this book mandatory as part of training. I think that watching a course from Eric M. Bailey or having him as a speaker would be the most beneficial, but I think simply reading this book could cut down on so many daily issues that arise simply from the lack of communicating properly.

I love the way Eric writes in a no nonsense way while also teaching us in a simplified manner. I think that is very necessary.

Eric M. Bailey has a way about his writing that puts the reader at ease from the very beginning. From the very first few paragraphs you read he shows us exactly what we will be getting from him and the book. I dare you to start and not want to read the entire thing ASAP!

This book is full of useful information without feeling daunting.

I really enjoyed it. It makes you look at communication a little different. If everyone followed this approach the world would be a little happier especially in the workplace!

This book is awesome! It is also totally applicable to life outside the workplace.

This felt like a text version of a day-long seminar. It was clearly written and broke down an extremely complex topic into digestible pieces, supported by relevant anecdotes that brought the concepts to life.

Personally, I feel I need to reread and take notes to get the most out of the content. Definitely recommend as a companion to other management books.
