Brenda Bernstein’s e-book holds key profile strategies and important tips on avoiding networking pitfalls. As a LinkedIn trainer myself, it’s good to know I have a resource like this for my clients to help them after they’ve left my classroom." - Michael Phelps, LinkedIn Trainer, Milwaukee, WI<br /> <br />"I just love this new book!

Who is this book for?<br /><br />"Always Know What To Say" is for anyone who wants a straight to the point explanation of conversation skills fundamentals. I point out key distinctions you can apply right away to go from being tongue tied and unsure of what to say to having fun meeting people and getting to know them better. If you read AND apply what I cover in the book you`ll make steady progress and become much more at ease talking to people.<br /><br />This book is not for you if you already have very good conversation skills and are comfortable meeting new people and letting your personality shine. You need to go elsewhere if you are looking for "secrets" and advanced strategies to achieve conversation skills mastery. You`ll regard this book as common sense. <br /><br />And finally, this book is not for you if you read self help books and disregard the training because you`ve read something similar before and never apply what you learn. You`ll tell yourself you knew it all already.<br /><br />You`ll gain a lot from "Always Know What To Say" if you treat it as a set of principles and strategies you get to play with in the real world. This is not light entertainment, its practical training that`s designed for you to use in your day to day life. If you do you`ll enjoy the happiness and warmth that comes from connecting with the important people in your life whether that be in your family and community or at work.<br /><br />Here`s what people are saying about this book at Amazon.com<br /><br />"If you are a shy person who finds it difficult to communicate with new people then this book will be helpful. Peter Murphy presents conversation starters, explains body language and teaches you what to ask people when you first meet. This book contains simple strategies for entertaining conversations. With this book anyone should be able to survive a party or talk to strangers on a plane. I personally find that listening to people talk about their life is a good way to make people like you. Being a shy person by nature I found some of this book to be very useful." <br /><br />Rebecca Johnson<br /><br />"I found a lot of great ideas in this book. I will have to refer back to it frequently to remember some of the ideas. Its a short book but not only is it packed with great ideas but the author has a great free website packed with ideas and there is a free audio on his website. I think it would be worth writing down some of the ideas and reviewing them before a social situation."<br /><br />Cynthia from Florida<br /><br />"As a manager of a retail store that pushes strong customer service, I have a large young staff. I've shared excerpts from this book with them and it blows their mind. As a young person they are having a hard time talking to people about something that they are worried doesn't interest the customer so they are all worried about failure and rejection. This book, I believe, has helped save my store. It is very basic, but almost like, why didn't I think to tell my staff that!"<br /><br />J.Conley<br /><br />Book Description:<br /><br />Want to know the easy way to approach and make conversation with new people? In this book you`ll discover simple ways to ensure you always have something interesting to talk about.<br /><br />Find out how popular people make it look so easy and how you can do the same. <br /><br />This short 17 page book covers the following strategies:<br /><br />- How to Approach Someone to Start a Conversation<br />- 9 Great Ways to Confidently Approach Anyone<br />- How to Stop Feeling Nervous When Meeting New People<br />- What to Say When Introducing Yourself to New People<br />- 6 Easy Ways to Avoid Getting Stuck for Words<br />- 10 Interesting Topics of Conversation for Every Occasion<br />- The Best Questions to Keep a Conversation Going<br />- How to Shine in Conversation with Listening Skills<br />- How to Use Body Language to Read People Like a Book<br />- Show People You Like Them and Make Friends with Ease<br /><br />Start reading this book right away and you`ll enjoy better conversation skills and have much more fun talking to the people in your day to day life

Il miglior modo per comunicare un valore è testimoniare un'esperienza. Farlo senza troppi discorsi, ma raccontando come nella propria vita quel valore si è tradotto concretamente. Riuscendo, quindi, a ridurre al minimo la distanza tra chi parla e chi ascolta. È ciò che si propone questo ebook, che raccoglie 18 testimonianze di persone di tutte le età.Si tratta di storie semplici di persone nella cui vita la donazione ha trovato un posto più o meno ampio. Perché quando nella vita entra un modo diverso di vivere e guardare le cose, allora è possibile che questo investa tutto, fino ad arrivare a qualcosa di così concreto come donare il proprio sangue. Ci sono storie di ragazzi che, partendo da una semplice donazione di sangue fatta a 18 anni, si stanno coinvolgendo appieno nella vita dell'Avis. E ci sono persone la cui vita è stata salvata in un modo o nell'altro dalla donazione di sangue. Come Antonella, guarita dall'anemia mediterranea grazie a una donazione di midollo osseo e, in precedenza, a tante trasfusioni rese possibili da tanti anonimi donatori. O come Enzo, che, dopo una vita di donazioni, che magari hanno contribuito a salvare tante persone di cui non conosce il nome, ha salvato anche la sua stessa vita grazie ai controlli periodici del sangue. Sono storie che, pur nella diversità delle situazioni, ci testimoniano che chi dona, in fondo, riceve anche tanto: in gratificazione, rapporti umani, amicizia, e anche in salute personale.Perché donare non è una cosa solo per super-uomini o persone più "buone", ma è un'esperienza alla portata di tutti. Anzi, che è inscritta nella nostra natura umana. E che ci permette di ricevere molto di più di quello che abbiamo donato, come testimoniano molti degli intervistati: il dono dà gioia, una soddisfazione che non è effimera ma rimane nell'animo. Perché, citando Papa Francesco, «è nel dono di sé, nell’uscire da se stessi, che si ha la vera gioia».
