Editorial Reviews

"Julian Treasure has long since been an inspirational voice for applied sound. His suggestion that politicians' "talks" should be called "listens" made me smile at its simplicity and geniality. Julian is well-respected in the small circle of international applied sound communication. He has now firmly occupied the territory of the effects of the spoken word as THE authority. In his new book, he expands the borders from concentration on the recipient to include the transmitter and delivers powerful insights on how to use words to their maximum effect. Apart from that, he is a rather nice bloke!" - John Groves, Founder, GROVES Sound Branding
