As described on their website, goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers and book recommendations. Their mission is to help people find and share books they love.

This popular and respected publication reviewed my book, “When the Headline Is YOU” and wrote; “Ansell presents tested techniques for responding to challenging questions and delivering effective messages. In addition, he reveals lessons learned and pitfalls to avoid by referencing recent news events from around the world.”

goodreads also published over 30 ratings from independent readers.

I’d like to share some of the reviews with you;

1/ Ami Neiberger-Miller gave my book 4 out of 5 stars and wrote a very detailed and flattering review, of which I am grateful. Here’s an excerpt; “I also really liked his section discussing messaging, that looked at how emotions win over facts and figures. Ansell counsels public relations professionals to understand the underlying emotions that impact consumer or target audience views. Facts cannot beat emotions – as much as public relations professionals love statistics, data and talking points.”

2/ Nick gave it 5 Stars and wrote, “Highly recommended for anyone who has to work with the media. In particular, the chapter “Twenty What-ifs” is a brilliant set of tips for dealing with all kinds of tricky questions and situations.”

3/ Bruce Kirby gave it 4 Stars and said, ” For everyone who thinks that they know how to speak to the media, this book proves that we don’t. Informative and useful, it fills in the blanks when it comes to what to say and how to say it so that your comments aren’t misconstrued.”

Chris Bucchere, Danielle, Chris Cooney, and Scott North also gave it 4 Stars!

Thank you everyone, for your support and kind words.
