    More of a book for Public Relation

    I brought this audio in expectation on providing practical tips on delivering impactful massages. Sure enough the early part of the book gives alot of practical advices on presentations and planning key messages to audience. The later half deal mainly with handling and taking advantage of public media to drive the point. Good for managing public relations but not what I am looking for in enhancing communication at a personal level.
