Wow, what a humbling challenge.
When I started working on The Truth About Getting Your Point Across with Prentice Hall, I did some serious soul searching about how to approach the book to best relate to you, the busy reader who wants to get some good practical advice quickly then move on to the next item on your to-do list. I realized that, for this book to be most useful, it needed to be something you didn't just read once then put on a shelf to forever gather dust. It needed to be something that was easy for you to pick up, get a few quick nuggets, and then apply them immediately. Because I wanted it to be personal, I exposed my own failures (and a couple of successes) to help you avoid many of the perils and pitfalls I have encountered throughout my career. To that end, each of the truths in this book is written with the following in mind:
