In his book, Les gives some invaluable advice as to how to improve one’s communication skills. Although the book is mainly aimed at people who want to try their luck in broadcasting and media, it proves virtually universal. Being an EFL teacher, I generally read methodology and linguistic books, but Les’s volume shows that one can also find useful answers outside the field. Les has convinced me how important it is to make people listen to what one needs to say (e.g. that certain ways of communicating are better than others, and that lazy speech will not be tolerated, while a foreign accent will). Les argues that good speech habits are easy to learn and apply – this is good news for everybody who was not born a great speaker/writer. Finally, the motto: “People who do what they enjoy are the most successful in the long term” will certainly appeal to everyone who likes doing things passionately and enthusiastically.
