Barbara  Berckhan - Verbal Judo


Lost for words? Never again – How to deal with impudence

Silly comments, verbal abuse, offensive remarks: don’t let them get to you and demonstrate your superiority by showing that you’re above such things. Here is a verbal defence strategy which will enable you to floor every opponent with wit and style. Our best-selling author provides you with 10 clever tactics you can use to win an argument – without coming to blows: such as "the detoxifying follow-up question", "the two-syllable comment", and "the compliment", to name but a few.
Includes four self-assessment tests
