Publisher's Summary

Joseph Romm, one of Rolling Stone magazine’s top "100 Agents of Change", has focused his talents on helping us all to increase our language intelligence and to better understand the art of persuasion.
Romm demonstrates that you don't have to be an expert to vastly improve your ability to communicate. He has pulled together the secrets of the greatest communicators in history to show how you can apply these tools to your writing, speaking, blogging - even your Tweeting. The book also looks at the language intelligence of President Obama and Governor Romney.
Nothing could be more relevant in 2012 as Americans prepare to make vital choices following the elections. Language Intelligence will not only prepare you to be a much more memorable and persuasive communicator, it will also help you to understand the tricks of the trade used and misused by candidates on the stump.
With a few easily digestible and memorable concepts, Language Intelligence also offers listeners an indispensable roadmap for today’s political and pop culture landscape.
"For anyone who seeks to understand why Lady Gaga’s music has become a global phenomena or how to avoid ‘Etch-A-Sketch’ moments, this book is for you," said Romm.

Liberal Propaganda

Any additional comments?

Had to stop listening. Couldn't take any more of the authors liberal propaganda on global warming and his other personal opinions about an array of issues other than what the book is supposed to be about.

All about proving the mythe of Global Warming.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If it were about what the title implied.


Would you ever listen to anything by Joseph J. Romm again?

No


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Drew Birdseye?

Narrator was fine... even good.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Some good content but mostly the book was an opportunity to create as many global warming metaphors as possible.
