Powerful but needs powerful editing
This book is a valuable read for any area of life in which we deal with others, either at work or at home. It pointed out how many aspects influence our interactions with others, including how we dress, down to our own basic facial expressions. However, I give this book poor grades for inadequate editing! The author discusses proper diction and how to properly phrase statements, but her book is full of grammatical errors! So much so that it is distracting and takes away from her credit as a professional speaker. For example, in one paragraph there are two sentences in a row where it looks like someone put in two different choices for one term, and they left both options in! You have to finish editing a book before printing it, especially in a book where you discuss that same basic topic! I'd like to apply the author's own "WAC'em" tactic towards herself and tell her she needs a better editor. This is a worthy read to boost your skills and confidence in almost any interaction, but I was disappointed in all of the basic English errors.Was this review helpful?
