Language Intelligence: Lessons on Persuasion from Jesus, Shakespeare, Lincoln, and Lady Gaga
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, Jul 11, 2012 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 230 pages
Joseph Romm, one of Rolling Stone magazine's top "100 Agents of Change," has focused his talents on helping us all to increase our Language Intelligence and to better understand the art of persuasion.
Romm demonstrates that you don't have to be an expert to vastly improve your ability to communicate. He has pulled together the secrets of the greatest communicators in history to show how you can apply these tools to your writing, speaking, blogging - even your Tweeting. The book also looks at the language intelligence of President Obama and Governor Romney.
Nothing could be more relevant in 2012 as Americans prepare to make vital choices in the upcoming elections. Language Intelligence not only will prepare you to be a much more memorable and persuasive communicator, it will also help you to understand the tricks of the trade used -- and misused -- by candidates on the stump.
With a few easily digestible and memorable concepts, Language Intelligence also offers readers an indispensible roadmap for today's political and pop culture landscape. "For anyone who seeks to understand why Lady Gaga's music has become a global phenomena or how to avoid 'Etch-a-Sketch' moments, this book is for you," said Romm.

Review: Language Intelligence: Lessons on Persuasion from Jesus, Shakespeare, Lincoln, and Lady GagaUser Review - Michele - Goodreads
Fascinating exploration of the art of persuasion - makes me wish for a classical education. A little thin on "how to" but a great start for communicators who want to hone their persuasiveness in writing and speech. Read full review

Good overview of key rhetorical 'figures', but definitely feels like the main examples are overused. Read full review
