Everyone Communicates Few Connect by John C. Maxwell

I'm part of a book program called BookSneeze. It allows me to keep up with my reading and share my opinion of the material I come across. If you want to participate just click here, read the guidelines and proceed if it's still something you're interested in. As I read and review books, I'll be posting them on my blog so if you're a reader (in addition to blogs), you'll be able to get some additional suggestions. I read a little bit of everything so pick and choose as you please! :)

There is no mistaking that if you want to connect and/or have had problems connecting while communicating this book will cure that problem. Even though the author is an "internationally-respected leadership expert, speaker, and author", he conveys his message in a humble manner. John C. Maxwell effortlessly explains how to effectively communicate. I was able to clearly decipher which areas I could improve to continue being a good communicator. There are plenty of times I've walked away from a situation or conversation feeling as though my point was not relayed in full; after reading and applying this book where necessary, I was able to acknowledge where my communication was more about myself and failed to be about who I was speaking with. I've always said that I hate when people talk at me versus to me and this book made it clear to identify why that is so. I would recommend this book to anyone who is striving to do better in their business and personal relationships. It will allow you to communicate on levels that you felt were impossible before. After reading this, no one has an excuse for not communicating to the best of their ability.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received Everyone Communicates Few Connect by John C. Maxwell free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

I noticed the link on your sidebar when I read the previous post & signed up. This book sounds interesting, perhaps I'll look into borrowing it from my library sometime soon.

I may grab a copy. I think I communicate well but there's always room for improvement, both in our personal lives and business.

I should check it out. Sometimes I feel like I'm so open, when I'm really not. I have a hard time being direct/to the point and completely honest (not blunt, though).

Be fair & civil in your commenting. If you can't manage that...well be unfair & rude and I'll respond. Yes, those are your only two options :)
