Everyone Communicates, Few Connect: Review!!

In John Maxwell's Everyone Communicates Few Connect, he discusses communication in a way that brings a new light to the subject. The book is divided into two parts, and in the first part Maxwell divulges into the five principles of connecting. At the conclusion of each chapter Maxwell includes questions for thought on how to apply the principle either in one-on-one, with an audience, or in a group. In the second part, he expands further and elaborates into five practices of connecting. Each chapter also concludes with a set of thought provoking questions on how to apply these practices.

I reccommend this book for leaders mostly, who are looking for a better way to connect with the group they are leading. It also may be a great resource for someone in ministry who is looking for answers on ways to connect with their congregation. I didn't find it as helpful as an individual who is looking for a way to better connect with one-on-one relationships, but it paved the road for a future study on one-on-one communication. Overall, great book!!
