Product Description:

Oh, that the instruction contained in this book was just "common sense!" Dave Marks, very politely, and often humorously, takes students through a number of tasks and challenges with the goal of revealing to (and gently instructing) them on better ways to communicate. He addresses everything from eye contact to "How to Reduce Aggression." The chapter on "How to Disagree" is my particular favorite. Even if your children have plenty of social contact and you feel they don't need this book, the small investment in time and money will be well worth the social advice here. If they incorporate even a portion of what they learn here into their personal encounters, the rewards will be tremendous. Urging the development of pleasant and productive relationships, the book has informative chapters on eye contact, verbal reinforcement, physical reinforcement, meeting people, understanding other people's point of view, not being boring, and more. Specific exercises students can practice to strengthen these skills are given, and the books bring to the surface common mistakes people make when dealing with others. The tips for better communication, making good first impressions, and having pleasant, purposeful conversations are great for all ages. 66 pgs, pb.
