In Gabriella’s third and most recent book (based on one of her popular presentations of the same name), we are shown hilarious scenarios of communication gone awry, told in comic and story format. But more importantly we are given a glimpse of what it means to watch our delivery and how to become the kind of communicator others will want to be around. Available here.
