The Communication Secrets To Get From Good To Great

Ideas don’t sell themselves. As the forces of globalization, automation, and artificial intelligence combine to disrupt every field and every career, having a good idea isn’t good enough. Mastering the ancient art of persuasion is the key to standing out, getting ahead, and achieving greatness in the modern world. Communication is no longer a “soft” skill—it is the human edge that will make you unstoppable, irresistible, and irreplaceable—earning you that perfect rating, that fifth star.


In Five Stars, communication coach Carmine Gallo skillfully builds the case that mastering the ancient art of persuasion is the key to thriving in a world of rapid technological change. Developing superior communication skills is no longer an option; it’s fundamental for success. Five Stars is an enormously valuable tool for entrepreneurs and leaders in every field.
