Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author and top pollster Dr. Frank Luntz comes an unprecedented examination of communication excellence and how top performers win in all areas of human endeavor by utilizing superb communication skills. From Mike Bloomberg and Arnold Schwarzenegger to business icons Rupert Murdoch, Steve Wynn, and Fred Smith; to the CEOs of MGM Resorts, J. Crew, and Gibson Guitar; to legendary sports superstars like Larry Bird, Jimmy Connors, and Mike Richter; to media legends Roger Ailes, Don Imus, and dozens more, Luntz tells their stories--in their own words--and demonstrates how their style of operation and communication is absolutely essential to their success. Luntz makes it clear that following the rules of effective communication is indispensable in any successful human endeavor.

Dr. Luntz offers more than seventy new "words that work" for private one-on-one meetings with your boss, for public presentations to hundreds of colleagues, or for television appearances that reach millions. There are more than three dozen specific lessons and recommendations--and each one directly illustrates the nine essential action-oriented principles of winning at every level: People-Centered, Paradigm-Breaking, Prioritizing, Perfection, Partnerships, Passion, Persuasion, Persistence, and Principled Actions.

Do you have what it takes Win is an unprecedented examination of the art, science, and language of winning, and a must-have for people who want to understand and emulate the winners of today.

THE DEFINITION OF WINNING

  • The ability to grasp the human dimension of every situation
  • The ability to know what questions to ask and when to ask them
  • The ability to see the challenge, and the solution, from every angle
  • The ability to communicate their vision passionately and persuasively
  • The ability to connect with others and create an enduring chemistry
  • and 10 other universal attributes of winners.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Luntz, a controversial political pollster, interviewed a fascinating list of "winners" such as Larry Bird, Rich DeVos, and Arnold Schwarzenegger to illustrate his "Luntz Lessons" about winning. Unfortunately the fruit of these interviews is sprinkled throughout the text; it would have been much more useful and engaging to see the interviews intact. List-based self-help books (this one has 13 attributes of winners and nine P's of winning) have the unenviable task of repackaging common sense. What sets them apart is theme and personality. Here Luntz leans primarily on personality, but his tone is so colloquial that it undermines his authority. Also, at various points the text loses focus on strategies for winning in business as Luntz instead opines that Google is creepy and Steve Jobs is a demigod, among other non sequiturs. VERDICT This guide fails to rise above the extant mass of motivational books. But fans of Luntz's previous best seller, Words That Work, or his Fox News appearances may be drawn to it.—Robert Perret, Univ. of Idaho Lib., Moscow
