Alexandria, VA, February 21, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- In this insightful and entertaining book, author Thomas F. Calcagni explains how successful politicians masterfully take control of difficult or controversial questions and how you can learn the same techniques they use to answer the most difficult questions in your daily life.
How would you answer a question from your lover such as, “Why don’t you share your feelings more with me?” or a question from your boss like, “Why do you think you really deserve a raise,” or even one from a tax examiner such as “Do you really think deducting a mink coat as an energy-related expense is legitimate? Tough Questions – Good Answers will show you how to answer questions like these easily and effectively.
“Think of the toughest question you could ever be asked by a prospective employer, your spouse, your boss or a child and imagine being able to answer it successfully with total confidence,” said Calcagni. “That is what Tough Questions – Good Answers can teach you to do.”
Calcagni, a former television reporter and anchor, senior advisor to two United States Senators and an experienced media coach who has worked extensively with corporate and not-for-profit executives, authors and professional athletes to answer questions from the media, said Tough Questions – Good Answers is intended to prepare anyone for any situation in which they may be answering difficult questions.
“Whether you are going into a job or admissions interview, sales call, employee review or executive presentation, this book will help people do so unafraid, knowing that whatever question is thrown at them, they will be able to handle it,” he said.
Tough Questions – Good Answers explains how to develop good personal and professional messages, identify tricky types of questions intended to trip you up and how to respond to them by making the points you want to make.
“Even if you don’t plan on answering tough questions anytime soon, I guarantee, if you read this book, you will never look at interviews on television the same way again,” said Calcagni. “When you know what a presidential candidate is doing to spin an answer as way to take control of it, that makes watching an interview a lot more informative and, frankly, a lot more interesting.”
Tough – Questions Good Answering: Taking Control of Any Interview is available at Borders and other book stores and also available online at Amazon.com
