APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Having the wit to come up with a great “mic drop” moment can feel pretty good—but stinging comebacks rarely make for productive conversations. As renowned orator Bishop T.D. Jakes explains in this audiobook, communication is a two-way street. For your message to be effective, it needs to be received. Drawing on his lifetime of preaching, Jakes clearly explains how to make a strong point while also ensuring that your intended audience will listen and understand. We were delighted to discover through Jakes’ Biblical examples how some of today’s most common communication challenges are age-old. (After all, the reason Jesus was so effective was that he motivated his listeners!) His preparation tips are invaluable—especially his insights on when and where to use a meaningful pause. Narrator Brad Sanders wonderfully captures Jakes’ infectious spirit. Whether your own message is spiritual or secular, Don’t Drop the Mic will give you the tools to make sure of the most crucial part—that it’s heard.
