Mortimer J. Adler's classic How to Read a Book was an instant bestseller upon publication, and its worldwide sales today total over seven million copies. Audiences will find this companion book just as provocative as its predecessor.

Drawing on decades of experience as an educator and philosopher, Mortimer J. Adler offers a short course in effective communication, filled with his wisdom and wit. Both instructive and practical, How to Speak, How to Listen will be invaluable to everyone: salespeople and executives involved in conferences and negotiations, politicians, lecturers, and teachers, as well as families seeking to improve communication among themselves.
