Editorial Reviews

Ali Velshi
This book deserves a broad audience. Everybody should read this book. In our businesses and our lives we all have communication failures that could easily be prevented with a little skill; but we are blind in the area. For example, I noticed in the "Business of Listening" section that listening is tough for me as a broadcaster. There are simple things in this 80-page book for each of us - stories, tips and labs - that will greatly raise the effectiveness of our communication. Read this book - it's going to cost you next to nothing to read. You can substitute one evening of entertainment and make a difference in your life and work for years to come.

    Focus on Listening

    In Communicate or Die, Thomas Zweifel cuts right to the heart of the matter using clear language and illustrations (stories, pictures, tips) that provide the reader with practical, essential communication tools. The chapter on listening based on his 'Matterhorn of Masterful Listening' states that 'your results increase exponentially with the quality of your listening'. I doubt that most of us think in terms of the 'quality' of our listening - and the chapter explicity describes what this means and how to achieve it in communication. Mr. Zweifel does not pretend that improved communication will be easy - the 'Troubleshooting Manual' makes this very clear! But he brings a sense of love and humor to the rigorous practices he advocates that made me as a reader WANT to participate in the process - for myself personally and professionally, and in the best interests of humanity. That is a large result for a 99 page text!

    Communicate or Die

    What I was left with after reading this book is that virtually any problem can be solved through communication -- both speaking and listening. Given the kinds of problems we are facing today, Communicate or Die should be required reading for anyone in a position of leadership. We live in a world where everyone has so much to say, but how much of what is said and written is truly productive and makes a difference? And who is listening? Read this book.

    A Life Or Death Matter

    Dr. Zweifel points out that communication is not only essential for making a living but for making a life. What is unique about this book of all the books and aritcles on this subject is the author's emphasis on listening. He gives many examples of global crises that can be averted by using the art of listening. The book is written with humor and insight and not one wasted word.
