No ground breaking new info in this book

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The book is of to a good start, but it gets a little borring when the writer goes of into how wonderfull NLP is and goes on with NLP principles for a couple of chapters. I would have loved if the first hour was the benchmark because the rest felt like the writer was just telling you about different approaches from different areas.

Would you recommend Communication Skills Training to your friends? Why or why not?

If you new in the field this migth be good. If so buy the paper book, because there is ALOT of pulletpoint reading and it doesn't work in a audiobook

What three words best describe Wendell Wadsworth’s performance?

Good voice and good speed.

Was Communication Skills Training worth the listening time?

Narrator is terrible, book is above average

I liked some of the content in the book but it's nothing spectacular after reading it twice and listening once.
I bought both the Kindle ebook and the audiobook for Whispersync. However, the narrator has the same lazy tone throughout as if he just got out of bed with a cold and is reading it for the first time. He seems to make up the words as he goes along in places and keeps adding in silly filler words and says things backwards that is quite annoying.
The book does have a couple of good sections such as Chapter 18 Eye Accessing Cues. Would never listen to this narrator again though - sounded so terrible.

Impractical advice

I wouldn't try some of the advice such as the "repetitive technique". You will definitely sound stupid or the person you're talking to will feel you think they're stupid for repeating your reasons over & over. Another advice re what to say when you arrived late at work. It suggested to stop giving excuses like traffic is heavy. Instead say "I did not take care of my car...". That sounds irresponsible, not a wise advice. Most of the advice, you really just need to use common sense. Some advice sounds confrontational or insulting.
