Review:

"Overcoming Fake Talk should be the mantra of anyone who's determined to get great results, consistently. It is a breakthrough book because it so clearly identifies communication problems that relatively few people understand how to solve. It offers the principles, practices, and skills so necessary for honest, trust-building conversation. If you're truly interested in respect, relationships, and results, this book is for you."
 
-Stephen M.R. Covey,
Bestselling author of The Speed of Trust and Smart Trust

"Not only does the author deal effectively with the psychology for holding any difficult conversation, but he also offers practical tools and techniques that can be applied in the toughest business and personal situations. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to hold REAL conversations and build better relationships in their personal and professional lives."
--Ricardo Lillo, president and CEO, DOOR Training International 


"Nothing about authentic leadership is fake--and that includes all forms of talk and walk. So, if you are now a leader--or if you aspire to be a leader--you need to learn how to have REAL conversations. John Stoker's enlightening and entertain- ing book, Overcoming Fake Talk, will help you to gain and maintain influence with key stakeholders by holding REAL conversations that get results."
--Marshall Goldsmith, New York Times bestselling author of MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There 


"John Stoker's book Overcoming Fake Talk is a thorough compendium of ideas, frameworks, examples, and actions to improve conversations. His four REAL conversation skills and eight principles give the novice and master insights and guidelines for improving conversation. His book will help get people talking in ways that create respect, build relationships, and get results."
--Dave Ulrich, professor, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan; partner, The RBL Group; and author of The Why of Work; rbl.net
