    " Overall, good tips on communication, but I thought it lacked examples and anecdotes to help me apply the methods in the real world. I love the approach "It's all about me," which really helped me to understand why so many misunderstandings arise during communication. "

    " A great starting point for those who want to understand others, and a quick read. "

    " Awesome book. Best book on communication I have ever read. Short. Lots of action items. Talks a lot about personality type (DISC) and values. Must read for team leaders and assemblers. "

    " Great book to direct better understanding of others. Sadly, had to grit my teeth a few times with Beverly's insecurity or perhaps it was bad sales tricks, I'm not sure. "

    " A short read, but very basic. If you haven't figured most of this out on your own, you really haven't put much thought into communicating with other people. A nice reminder, though. "

    " Sadly its very short book. The examples are very few and the summarizing are very brief. I think the author should consider writing a prolong version of the book. On the other hand its useful and to the point kind of book. "
