Cover design for Talkability: Discover the Secrets of Effective Conversation by James Borg
Most of the modern education systems don’t teach the importance of words in day to day communication or the way they can alter reality. There is a widely used metaphor of “magic words,” but few realize that words indeed can have a magic influence on circumstances and people’s feelings. Talk can do wonders.
In his new book, James Borg talks about new, more effective ways of “doing wonders” by changing the habitual manner of speech in different situations. Thoughts are formed by words we use to express them, which is why it is important to control your internal monologue and choose words carefully.
