Back Pocket Coach: 33 Effective Communication Strategies for Work & Life was an interesting book to read. I think my favorite aspect of was its length it was not one of those super long, dry, and boring communication guide books that kills you to read it. No, instead this book was short and to the point while keeping the material interesting. It also used real world context which made it easy to understand!
