Washington, D.C. — In his new book Language Intelligence, Joseph Romm, one of Rolling Stone magazine’s top “100 Agents of Change,” has focused his talents on helping us all to increase our "language intelligence" and better understand the art of persuasion.
Romm shows you don’t have to be an expert to vastly improve your ability to communicate. He has pulled together the secrets of the greatest communicators in history to show how you can apply these tools to your writing, speaking, blogging—even your tweeting.
The book also looks at the language intelligence of both President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Nothing could be more relevant in 2012 as Americans prepare to make vital choices in the upcoming elections. Language Intelligence not only will prepare you to be a much more memorable and persuasive communicator, but it will also help you understand the tricks of the trade used—and misused—by candidates on the stump.
With a few easily digestible and memorable concepts, Language Intelligence also offers readers an indispensable roadmap for today’s political and pop culture landscape. “For anyone who seeks to understand why Lady Gaga’s music has become a global phenomena or how to avoid ‘Etch-a-Sketch’ moments, this book is for you,” said Romm.
Van Jones, president of Rebuild the Dream, said, “This book changed my life, and it can change yours, too. Joe Romm understands the secrets of persuasion and messaging and he has distilled them into this must-read book.”
The book is available at Amazon.com for $9.99 for Kindle, and $14.99 in paperback.
