Comments
For a book that is technical, this is very easy to read (no surprise considering this is a book on effective communication!). It is replete with examples - in fact, almost all the content is explained with their help. The content is extremely useful - applicable in day to day life for anyone, but most of all Barbara's target customer segment - people who's work requires them to present their ideas to others.
