Ideas don't sell themselves. 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, Carmine Gallo breaks down Aristotle's ancient formula of persuasion to inspire contemporary audiences. As the nature of work changes and technology carries things across the globe in a moment, communication skills become more valuable--not less. When people express their ideas effectively, they're more likely to win dream jobs, sell products, build brands, and trigger movements. Gallo will help you unlock into your innate emotional and social skills, develop your public speaking talent to communicate your ideas with confidence, and build empathy with your listeners.
