Mastering the ancient art of persuasion is the key to standing out, getting ahead, and achieving greatness in the modern world.

As the nature of work changes, and technology carries things across the globe in a moment, communication skills become more valuable-not less. Gallo interviews neuroscientists, economists, historians, billionaires, and business leaders of companies like Google, Nike, and Airbnb to show first-hand how they use their words to captivate your imagination and ignite your dreams. In the knowledge age-the information economy-you are only as valuable as your ideas.

If your great ideas are locked in your head they are useless to you and your team...Anyone who hopes to survive and flourish in today's economy should read this book and learn." - Kim Scott, bestselling author of Radical Candor "Five Stars is an enormously valuable tool for entrepreneurs and leaders in every field." - Tony Robbins, New York Times #1 bestselling author

Professional reviews

"The author of a guide to effective TED speaking, Carmine Gallo narrates this broader discussion of communication with a flinty clarity that calls to mind the tone and assertive delivery of some early TV pitchmen. But he's more than that--he's a gifted writer and teacher who sounds engaged with his audience and who believes deeply in his ideas. Gallo argues that robots and artificial intelligence will displace many workers and require even greater communication skills from those who remain. Robots also can't empathize the way humans can, so, along with good ideas clearly articulated, connecting with an audience or constituency will be critical to persuading them. This exceptional audio offers many useful tips while it motivates listeners to make a difference in the world by improving the way they think, write, and speak.
