∭ search Hardcover ᠓ Words That Work: It's Not What You Say, It's What People Hear - Kindle edition by Frank Luntz. Reference Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. ↨ E-Pub Author Frank Luntz ⇼ After repeating his mantrait s not what you say, it s what people hearso often in this book, you d think that Republican pollster Luntz would have taken his own advice to heart Yet in spite of an opening anecdote that superficially attempts a balanced tone, the book as a whole truly reads like a manual for right wing positioning Even in the sections where he is less partisan, Luntz s advice is not particularly insightful For instance, his first chapter, on Ten Rules of Effective Language, starts by instructing readers to use small words and short sentences in their communications The least effective section in the book is the chapter on Personal Language for Personal Scenarios, where Luntz advocates manipulative strategies for getting out of traffic tickets, boarding airplanes at the last minute and apologizing to one s wife with the miracle elixir of flowers The most readable and redeeming feature is the two case studies, where Luntz demonstrates his skill as a communicator by identifying real world communications successes and failures Unfortunately, by the time nonpartisan readers reach these chapters, they will have already lost patience Jan Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved. Words That Work deserves an attentive read Mr Luntz offers a fair amount of good advice to anyone who must communicate publicly most important, be the message By this he means that if you want to talk the talk and be believed, you must walk the walk which is to say, you must mean what you say and act on it Integrity sells. As the book develops, Mr Luntz s words that work turn out to be portals for his clients to think hard about what they and their opponents stand for and how to align their positions closely with what their audiences actually care about This isn t hocus pocus It s just the result of hard work, careful thought and empathy the staples of all intelligent public discourse. Wall Street JournalDr Luntz, you are a freaking genius The book is called Words That Work and you re always right Chris MatthewsFew political consultants can boast as many strings to their bow at such a young age as Frank Luntz When he was barely in his thirties, the Republican wordsmith played a critical role in devising the Contract With America, which helped Newt Gingrich s Republican party win control of both houses of Congress for the first time in than a generation It is a fair bet that Luntz will play an influential role in the 2008 election, possibly in service of his old friend the former mayor of New York Words That Work is Luntz s attempt to distil what he insists is his intrinsically honourable profession between two covers To a large extent it works Even where Luntz is protesting a bit too loudly that negative attacks on political opponents rarely work, for example, and that, by implication, Luntz has never been involved in such skulduggery he is always readable Part lexicographic memoir, part self help book, Words That Work shines when the accent is on the former It is hard to think of any other political consultant in America who has coined as many effective slogans as Luntz Some, such as his branding of the estate, or inheritance, tax as the death tax, have remoulded conventional wisdom with devastating effect on their principally Democratic defenders Others have crept into common usage less dramatically but just as effectively Take exploring for energy instead of drilling for oil, tax relief in place of tax cuts, or not giving emergency hospital care to illegal aliens instead of denying it to undocumented workers Words, or rather the slicing and dicing of them to fashion our subliminal responses, do work, particularly when tried and tested in Luntz s two hour dial sessions, where volunteers convey their responses by turning a dial up or down in reaction to what they are seeing and hearing Luntz has produced a fine book that teaches us a great deal about politics in today s America and about the minutely analysed mindset of the electorate That Luntz s words are effective there can be little doubt Financial TimesFrank
