Breakthrough Communication: A Powerful 4-Step Process for Overcoming Resistance and Getting Results
By Harrison Monarth
Available through Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions. You can find it at other fine online and offline book sellers, as well.
Summary of Breakthrough Communication:
This book provides simple communication strategies you can use to communicate your message more effectively in business situations. Harrison Monarth illustrates methods with stories drawn from history, fiction and business, alike.
The resistance referred to in the subtitle is the misunderstandings, confusion, and sometimes even hostility that occurs when communication is not clear. Monarth shares his strategy for not only being clear on your side of a conversation but guiding the person or people on the other side to clarity, as well.
What I liked about Breakthrough Communication:
The book in written in straightforward, easily accessible language and is organized logically. The stories are as compelling as they are illustrative. The author repeats his points effectively, making the information easier to digest.
What I didn’t like about Breakthrough Communication:
Sometimes I found myself getting lost. I don’t know if it was because the book has so much to say that I would forget where I was, or if it was because I was reading the Kindle version. At this point, I am tempted to get the physical book and read it again. Maybe that’s a good thing?
The book is deceptively easy read. I think there are layers here that would require more than one read through. I think it could be a valuable resource for your library.
NOTE: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. If you’ve read past book reviews, you’ll know that I don’t pull my punches when I believe they are warranted. I also try to provide balanced information so you can make your own decision to read or not read the book, even if you disagree with my opinion.
