    "Few people are born with a natural gift for communication; the rest of us would benefit greatly from taking this material to heart!"--Geoffrey O'Connell, partner, Accenture "In today's business environment--where good customer service is now the price of entry--great, personalized service is the differentiator. Kim and Kerry help the reader understand the little things they can do to differentiate themselves in their marketplace."--Todd Brown, marketing manager, Cadillac Escalade and SRX "If you aren't where you should be in your career, it's an extremely good bet that the problem is how you communicate. I've seen every one of the mistakes Zoller and Preston describe (and I've made many myself), and any one of them can torpedo your success if not corrected. You Said What?! is the most straightforward and practical guidebook to improving your communications I've ever read, and I'm recommending this book to every employee of mine who wants to achieve more in their professional lives."--Doug Leeds, CEO, "In spite of what you may believe, it is what you say and it is how you say it. The way you speak will determine your pathway to success. You Said What?! is your guidebook."--Jeffrey Gitomer, author of The Little Red Book of Selling
