Have you ever wondered why our language has so many words that say approximately the same thing? Well, Mr. Maslansky doesn't dive into the history of language but he does something more valuable! He talks about why many of us are failing to communicate today. We're failing not because we don't use good grammar or sentence structure. We're failing for two reasons: (1) we aren't overcoming today's barriers to communication BEFORE we try to communicate and (2) we aren't using the RIGHT words or communicating the RIGHT message in the RIGHT way.
I've been building a technology business these last few years talking a lot about what Mr. Maslansky laid out in his book. We have more communication channels than ever before but in many ways it has hindered our ability and sometimes even our desire to communicate. Marketers haven't helped!
The point is...if you think the words you use, how you present them, and what you say doesn't really matter then don't read his book. On the other hand, if you realize like me that communication is not just what you say but how you say it then get this book. It's worth the time!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Chapter 1 - Telephone interview with author.
Chapter 2 - Recap of Chapter 1
Skip to Chapter 3 to begin.
So far, a lot of the same thing about lack of trust. Yes, that is why I bought this book. I want to get past the lack of trust and start to build it.
I guess I have to wait for a coming chapter...
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
