I was lucky to be able to get a copy of this book to read and review through the Tomas Nelson Book Sneeze program that allows me to get free copies of books to read and review. I love to read books, but there are many times when you read a book cover to cover and maybe pull an idea or two from it. Rare is it that every page contains an idea, quote, thought or practical application that you can take and apply to those around you. This book is like a mater's program on getting the most out of your life. It is not something that you can just zip through, but in order for this to be effective, you need to 'marinate' on the ideas that are jammed between the covers and start applying the ideas one at a time. There are many books about getting better about a specific area of your life, or moving up in your career, but I don't know if I have read a book like this that applied to virtually every part of my life. This book isn't just a 'How to' manual, it lays out practical concepts and then backs them up by examples and quotes from influential people. However, the most effective part however is they 'real life' stories and thoughts that are shared by common people like you and me that help make these concepts more real. I could attempt to list out all of the great concepts and talk about how much more effective you will be at your professional and personal relationships, how your outlook on these relationships will change and if you take these concepts to heart it will require a ton of work but your life will be better for it, but I won't do that. I will just say, you should get a copy and read it. And then start to apply some of these principles and watch things start to come together.

Having taught elementary school for 30 years, I would have said that I know all about communicating with people. However, upon retiring I found myself interacting with adults. I had not really given much thought to connecting with people. I choose John Maxwell's, Everyone Communicates Few Connect a couple years ago, and found it to be an outstanding book on connecting with people. I read the book then got involved with some other projects. Since then I came back to the book and picked it back up again. I had underlined the things that stood out as I read the book. Now I have read it twice. Mr Maxwell quotes Dan, "People with charisma possess an outward focus instead of an inward one. They pay attention to other people, and they desire to add value to them." Whether you wish to learn to connect on a personal level or with larger audiences Mr. Maxwell has much to offer. Not only do you learn about connecting with others you will also learn about yourself. Thank you Mr. Maxwell for helping me to think through my connecting skills. And yes I do think this book has helped me add value to my life. Want to add value to your life, pick up a copy today.

I am a big fan of any John Maxwell book. I love his stories, his one liners, and I love he states thoughts easily so you can remember them. I will first start by talking about the negative in this book. I felt like it became a little redundant os some of his other books. He kind of went over similar things before but in a different way. Thats my only negative.. Here are some of the positives. He constantly challenges and brings to life great questions. Am I a good communicator and if not, then why. We work in the ministry and we are constantly working with leaders and people; we are trying to inspire and this book helps develop a better avenue for that. I think that this world is often really bad at communicating and connecting. We need need to become better at it and this book helps to develop that. * Do you care for me? * Can you help me? * Can I trust you? * What do you dream about? * What do you sing about? * What do you cry about? Good communication is about being a good listener and we need to become better at that..Highly recommend this book.
