Book Review of Everyone Communicates, Few Connect

John Maxwell is a man who has written A LOT of books. This book is coming out soon- Everyone Communicates, Few Connect. Have you ever wondered why some people are really effective in their communication and some people just aren’t? Maxwell shares some of the wisdom that he has learned over the years in helping us communicate more effectively.

The book is divided into 2 parts: principles of connecting and practices of connecting. I think that for new communicators, this book has a lot to teach. I felt like most of the things I read I had learned in college or in my early years of ministry, BUT, my experience could be atypical. If you feel like you aren’t that great of a communicator- whether that be in the home, in relationships, in the workplace or on a stage- then you may want to check this book out.

My only criticism of this book is that it seemed egocentric at times. I know that that is not how Maxwell wanted to come off, but the content did a lot of praising of himself and his accomplishments, with only a little showing of his weaknesses. However, maybe it is just because he is a good communicator? Read it and let me know what you think!
