John C. Maxwell’s book, “Everyone Communicates Few Connect” is not only for people who want to be public speakers. While it does include information for public speakers to connect better with their audiences it also includes ways to connect with others in all kinds of occasions. He utilizes both stories from his many years as a pastor and stories from others to explain tips on ways to connect with others better.
Communicating involved more than just talking. As he states in the book, “Connecting is the ability to identify with people and relate to them in a way that increases your influence with them.”
The book includes John’s proven method – Five Principles and Five Practices, so you can connect one-on-one, in a group or with an audience. Each chapter of the book ends with a recap of the information included in that chapter.
I would recommend “Everyone Communicates Few Connect” to people who currently do public speaking or are aspiring to become public speakers. It would also be helpful to others, even if they do not plan on being public speakers.
