Review quote

'At the very least readers will be challenged to think about the effect of the words they use, and at the most, less confident people will take away some inspiring tips on how to start chatting to strangers, how to use them as 'guinea pigs' for practice and how this approach will help them communicate better, build confidence and get better outcomes.' (B2B Marketing, 27th August) 'This book is a bible for anyone who needs help with their communication skills and confidence.' (Talk Business, September 2013)
