Talk Like a Winner: 21 Simple Rules for Achieving Everyday Communication Success—A Winner!

First and foremost, I appreciate author Steve Nakamoto’s candor when it comes to revealing his own social angst and challenges in life. I always admire someone who is confident enough to be vulnerable with his or her own foibles as opposed to hiding behind a façade of professional accomplishments. On the topic of professional accomplishments, Mr. Nakamoto certainly has a background that sets a resume apart. His other books, “Dating Rocks!” and “Men Are Like Fish” each won an award from Writer’s Digest. In addition, Mr. Nakamoto served as a human relations and communications instructor for Dale Carnegie and Associates, not to mention that he fulfilled the role of a neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) personal development trainer for Tony Robbins for seven years. Winning stuff to be sure!

In his introduction, he states, “For most of my life, I’ve had a terrible fear of public speaking. I remember one regrettable time when I gave an oral report in my 7th grade English class and started shaking and gasping for air.” He goes on to say that his English teacher shamed him in front of the class. From the introduction to the end, as a whole, it’s a gutsy book outlining rules written by a gusty man…I mean, how many people intimidated by social situations go on to become tour directors for tourists?

Mr. Nakamoto’s simple strategies to help people succeed in everyday conversations broken down into twenty-one rules are, as the title suggests, simple. He expounds on one rule per chapter. Some of them, however, become a bit too elementary (for example, talk about current events; smile; make people laugh). On the other hand, the bulk of the book gives the reader many ideas to mark with a yellow highlighter. For instance, “Interrupt the negative talk with a surprise physical movement.” (Can’t wait to try it!)

I think, also, that Mr. Nakamoto needed to add a chapter that detailed the importance of being a skilled conversationalist without the need for forsaking one’s true personality. The point is, sometimes the book’s pointers sound forced and seem to promote phoniness and not authenticity.

Overall, though, the book makes for a winning read…do not forget your highlighter.

In today's world, a civilized conversation almost seems like a lost art. Steve Nakamoto's book "Talk Like a Winner" puts civility and enjoyment back into conversing with your fellow man. Nakamoto has organized his book into easily understandable chapters of 21 rules. The rules are so common sense, it makes one wonder why everyone isn't a good conversationalist naturally. I recommend reading one chapter/one rule a day and applying that knowledge in the next day's conversation. You will be amazed how quickly your new skills will become second nature. Now enjoy the good life with good conversatons and being a winner!
