This book is probably not what you expect. Its focus is not about avoiding big or technical words. It is about how we, as human beings, communicate and how to improve understanding.

Discover How To:

  • Stop being your own worst obstacle
  • Understand your audience so they will understand you
  • Learn from the common mistakes of others
  • Help others share their messages with you
  • Hear what you’ve been missing all this time

Every wonder why people ignore you or forget what you said? Maybe you know someone that sounds smart but makes little sense to you? Why does this happen? What does it cost you in your career, your business and your life?

Whether we admit it or not, we are all a nerd about something. That can be a major problem you have likely never realized. To succeed in business and life, it is critical to understand when (and why) your messages are being ignored or lost.

Nerd-to-English explores the gaps we all have in our communication with not only each other, but with ourselves. Author Glenn S. Phillips shares lessons, experiences and insight derived from overcoming personal and financial crisis and discoveries from more than twenty years of business and technology consulting.

The book explores the ways we all fool ourselves, how to recognize this behavior, and ways to overcome these challenges to become more effective sharing our message.
