Description

By George J. Thompson, PH.D., and Jerry B. Jenkins

#8955   Verbal Judo is the classic guide to the martial art of the mind and mouth that can help you defuse confrontations and generate cooperation, whether you’re talking to a boss, a spouse, or even a teenager. For more than a generation, Dr. George J. Thompson’s essential handbook has taught people how to communicate more confidently and persuasively in any situation.

Verbal Judo shows you how to listen and speak more effectively, engage others through empathy (the most powerful word in the English language), avoid the most common conversational disasters, and use proven strategies to successfully express your point of view and take the lead in most disputes.
This updated edition includes a new foreword and a chapter featuring Dr. Thompson’s five universal truths of “human interaction”:
  • People want to be respected
  • People would rather be asked than be told
  • People want to know why
  • People prefer to have options over threats
  • People want to have a second chance
Stop being frustrated and misunderstood. Stop finding yourself on the losing end of an argument. With this book you’ll be able to have your say – and say what you mean.
