Professional reviews

"Lisa Marshall, reading her idea-packed guide with charm and clarity, goes well beyond the topic of giving speeches in this breezy, fast-moving audiobook. The best things to say in a variety of situations--meeting people, following up with them, giving feedback, negotiating, and more--all come alive with her arresting personal stories and accessible scripts. She engages her listeners with her laid-back earnestness and frequent invitations to practice these techniques, quiz themselves, and put her suggestions into practice. Trained as an attorney, Marshall has a knack for unfolding her ideas with solid groundwork and common-sense rationales. Her suggestions are persuasive because her writing and speaking have the humanity needed to make listeners want to devour this material and take their communication skills to the next level. T.W.
