Summary

Communicate boldly and effectively like never before with the help and guidance of a number-one New York Times best-selling author and trusted Bishop.

In Don't Drop the Mic, Bishop Jakes speaks to listeners about communication and how the ways we speak and interact with others can be part of our everyday ministries. He helps listeners understand: 

  • Why the way we speak and the words we use matter
  • How speaking well, no matter your topic or audience, improves your chances of getting the result you want
  • How to craft your message, whether it's a simple email or a speech under the spotlights, to connect with listeners 
  • Why good communication is important for building connection and community 
  • How sharing God's Word produces abundant fruit 

​Drawing lessons from Scripture and his own life, Jakes gives career advice for those who have or want to grow into a speaking career, but he also provides clear direction and insight for everyone who gives presentations, writes emails, or talks to other people in their job or home life. 

There will be practical advice about how to craft insightful and meaningful communications, but the heart of this book is really about how we can communicate more clearly to build community and share the hope of Christ in our everyday lives. 

The more adept we become at using all available resources to convey our message, the greater our impact. From lovers to litigators, entrepreneurs to entertainers, and bloggers to board members, we all want to communicate more effectively, intimately, and efficiently. Whether you're interviewing for a new position, proposing a new business plan, auditioning for a performance, delivering a report for your committee, teaching Sunday school, or sharing your heart with a loved one, this book will help.

TD JAKES DOEST NARRATE HIS BOOK ON SPEAKING

I’m extremely disappointed that bishop jakes, one of the best speakers that ever lived, doesn’t narrate his book on how to become a good communicator.

This book opens with a introduction read by bishop, which to me felt like I was being tricked into thinking he would read the entire book. He doesn’t 😠

I’ll get the hardback book instead. I can’t bear listen to this version of the book. I’m returning this audio version.

Foundational truth about Communication

This book is full of impactful knowledge based information that is applicable in every facet of life. Oftentimes, I find myself forgetting the power that I hold in my day to day communications with my personal audience in life. Thank you Mr. Jakes for delivering such life changing information and your personal story. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to move to the next level in communication.

Difficult to enjoy using Audiobooks

The reader did not do justice for the listener. He was monotone and did not capture the brilliance of TD Jakes. His narration made the text boring.

for new and seasoned speakers

this book really took some of the stigmas out of public speaking by giving practical steps and examples. there is a lot to unpack but taking the 1 tip at a time is what I plan to do. definitely one that will be on replay often

Wow!

I don't think I have ever read a more compelling book on the responsibility of a person who carries the mantle of preaching or teaching. This book is still challenging me and I finished it weeks ago. Thank you @bishoptdjakes
